Man United informed how much they would need to pay for 19-G/A attacker

Manchester United are looking to improve their attacking unit with the signing of the Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee.

The 23-year-old had an impressive campaign with the Italian outfit last season scoring 12 goals in all competitions and picking up seven assists along the way. He could prove to be a quality long-term acquisition for Manchester United who are in need of attacking reinforcements.

The Dutch attacker is more than just a goalscorer and he will add creativity to the Manchester United attack as well.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils have already spoken to the player’s agents regarding a potential move and it remains to be seen whether they decide to trigger his release clause. The Premier League side have been informed that they will have to pay €40 million in order to sign the striker and the release clause will be valid until mid-August.

Man United would benefit from signing Joshua Zirkzee

It remains to be seen what the Red Devils decide. They decided to sign Rasmus Hojlund last season and the Denmark international needs more support in the attack. Signing Zirkzee would not only share the goalscoring burden with Hojlund, it would also add more depth to the Manchester United attacking unit. The Red Devils need a deeper squad in order to do well across multiple competitions.

Meanwhile, the opportunity to move to Manchester United will be quite exciting for Zirkzee and he will look to prove himself in the Premier League. It would be a major step in his career and he has the physical and technical attributes to thrive in English football as well.

The reported asking price is affordable for a club with Manchester United’s resources, and it will be interesting to see how the situation develops.
