Manchester United could be set to attempt a transfer for former West Ham United striker, Sebastian Haller, with the club said to be showing interest following Erik ten Hag’s appointment as manager.
This comes from The Sun, with the newspaper claiming that the Reds are looking at the Ajax star who is supposedly valued at £35 million – three years after costing West Ham £42 million.
The 27-year-old has two years left on his contract at Ajax and with Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani set to leave this summer, Haller could fill a void at United if the club miss out on Benfica striker Darwin Nunez.
Haller hardly had the most successful time in the Premier League – which I guess is to be expected at a club like West Ham… But the decision to sell him has since been questioned as Haller has amassed an astonishing 58 goals and assists for the Dutch giants in 54 games.
While Haller was a flop at West Ham, the Ivory Coast international has seen sensational under Erik ten Hag.
Mohamed Salah and Kevin de Bruyne are among the players who struggled in their first spells in the Premier League, so maube the same will apply to Haller.
Maybe the new manager wants to have a player he can rely upon to play second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo, who shouldn’t be expected to play as many games next season.
It feels like we are being linked with every Tom, Dick and Harry who is connected to Ten Hag at the moment.
