Man Utd suffer blow in transfer pursuit of prolific striker

Bad news for the Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…

Man Utd have struggled so far this season, with a number of the Red Devils’ first team players struggling to find their feet under Jose Mourinho.

This is none more true than with regards to the Man Utd strikeforce – with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney struggling for form.

This has, inevitably, led to speculation in the Football Transfer Tavern that Man Utd could look to reinforce – with Andrea Belotti touted with a big money move to the Manchester giants.

However, the Red Devils have suffered a huge blow in their pursuit of the dynamic attacker – with the Mirror reporting that he is set to sign a new deal with current club Torino, with an £80 million buyout clause likely to be included in the deal.

This will undoubtedly cause problems for Mourinho, as it would not only secure Belotti’s short-term future – but the huge buyout clause would likely prevent any move in the long-term future too.

Belotti has been in fine form this season, having already picked up 10 goals for Torino – having come off the back of a stellar campaign last year. During the 2015/16 season, Belotti bagged an impressive 12 goals – and his form this year looks set to better that.

A quick, technical forward – Belotti would be a great contrast to the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Man Utd – and would offer Mourinho another option up top.

The Man Utd fans were very keen to see Belotti come to Old Trafford – but feel that Mourinho will have to look elsewhere should he sign the new deal.
