Man United have made contact to sign £35million forward – Face competition

Manchester United are linked with numerous forwards and therefore the latest name within the focus is that of Krzysztof Piatek.

According to famous Italian outlet La Repubblica, Man Utd, Tottenham and other English clubs have moved to rent the services of the Polish striker.

Similarly, as per The Athletic, Man United have made contact to sign the 24-year-old AC Milan star within the January transfer window following the injury to England international Marcus Rashford.

Pitaek was in top form for both Genoa and Milan last season. altogether competitions, he started 39 games and netted 30 goals.

In the current campaign, the Serie A star has thus far scored 5 goals in 19 appearances for the Rossoneri but now finds himself during a complex situation after the arrival of superstar forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The retired Swedish international started within the last two league outings for the seven-time European Champions and Piatek only warmed the bench. However, the Polish star did feature within the Coppa Italia fixture on 15th January and directly contributed in 2 goals in Milan’s convert SPAL.

As far as his international career cares , Poland have usually preferred the likes of Lewandowski and Milik within the strike-force but Piatek’s record is impressive. In 6 starts, he has netted 5 goals for the country.

Man United haven’t replaced Lukaku so far and now that their top scoring star is out injured, Solskjaer must not let the winter transfer window pass without reinforcing the strike-force.

The horrid last night’s display at Old Trafford against Burnley, who were ready to keep a clean sheet, made it clear that the Red Devils need firepower up front. In such a scenario, a striker like Krzysztof Piatek would improve the department.

His current contract with the Italian club will expire in 2023 and as per an exclusive report recently covered by The Sun, he’s valued at £35million.
