Under could be the man to put Man United back over Man City

Manchester United will be hoping their summer signings can help to challenge Manchester City for the title next year.

The Red Devils finished 19 points behind the Citizens last season and also lost in the final of the FA Cup against Chelsea. After ending the campaign without a trophy for the first time as United manager, Jose Mourinho has wasted no time in bolstering his ranks this summer. United have spent over £70m to bring Diogo Dalot and Fred to Old Trafford.

With Alexis Sanchez on the left and Romelu Lukaku in the centre, the former Chelsea boss has an attack that can guide United to another Premier League title. On the right, United are void of quality options that can spearhead a title challenge. Therefore, Mourinho needs to land a top right winger this summer.

The perfect signing could be Roma wonderkid – Cengiz Under. Valued at £24.3m by Transfermarkt, the Turkish international joined the club last summer from Basaksehir to replace Mohamed Salah who left for Liverpool. Under made an excellent start to life in Italy, scoring seven goals in just 15 starts in the Serie A.

Capable on either flank, the 21-year-old would be a massive hit in the Premier League. A skilful winger who loves to beat his man, Under loves turning defence into attack. His hard-working nature means he is ideal for Mourinho. Alongside target man Edin Dzeko, he has excelled, meaning he would have slot seamlessly into the United attack with Lukaku.

Under made it clear in an interview last year that he wants to play in the Premier League for a club like Manchester United. Now is the time to bring him to England.
