Manchester United: Red Devils ‘monitoring’ Tammy Abraham
Manchester United are interested in making a move for Roma and England striker Tammy Abraham this summer, according to a new transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Abraham improves in Italy
The Englishman made what was arguably a surprise move to Italy back in 2021, joining Roma in a deal that was reportedly worth £34million.
Abraham has justified his price tag for Roma, however, scoring 17 Serie A goals in a very productive 2021/22 season and netting 34 times in total since arriving.
Now, it could be that a new challenge is heading the 25-year-old’s way, following a key update regarding his future.
The Latest: Man Utd ‘monitoring’ striker
According to 90min, United are ‘monitoring’ Abraham’s current situation ahead of a potential summer move, but Aston Villa are the current front-runners to sign him.
The striker’s current Roma deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2026 but they are ‘ready to discuss selling’ following a slight drop off in form this season.
The Verdict: Is he good enough?
Abraham is undoubtedly a good player, having scored three times in 11 caps for England and being described as ‘big’ and ‘mobile’ by former striker Kevin Campbell.
There is an argument to say that United required a higher calibre of striker than him this summer, however, with the 6 ft 3 former Chelsea man not in that elite bracket in his position.
The Red Devils continue to be linked with a move for Napoli star Victor Osimhen and he is on another level to Abraham, having scored 18 league goals in as many starts this season.
This is the standard of player that United need to be signing to lead their attack, and with Abraham potentially costing more than £40million, they would be wise to look at other options.
