The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see a striker sign for the club this summer, and Andrea Belotti might just be the perfect player for the job…
By looking at the current holes in the Man Utd squad, the need for a striker is obvious. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is out for the season, has yet to sign a new deal with the club, and it is beginning to look increasingly likely that he will move on. Likewise, Wayne Rooney likely won’t be a Man Utd player next season – leaving the Red Devils very short up front. Of course, Marcus Rashford is a great option – but can Jose Mourinho put all of his emphasis on a teenager?
Belotti, who is rated at £25.5 million by TransferMarkt, would certainly fit the role perfectly. A young player, just 23, the Italian would be a long-term solution – leaving Mourinho free to improve the rest of his squad over the coming years.
His quality on the field is what really separates him from the rest, though. He is potent in front of goal, having scored 25 league goals so far this season, whilst he is also a hard worker. His quick, energetic style of play would certainly suit Jose Mourinho and Man Utd, offering the club even more than Ibrahimovic has this season.
Of course, he would likely cost a princely sum, but you simply cannot put a price on quality. He is one of Europe’s most impressive young players, and a top quality forward will simply be a necessity at Old Trafford this summer.
Mourinho will want proven quality, and given Belotti’s record, his signing would not be a risk.
