Talks held: Manchester United officials in contact over £77m move to sign left-footed “machine”

Posted by

According to reports, Manchester United and Dusan Vlahovic’s agent have discussed the possibility of Vlahovic joining the Premier League.

Leaving Juventus, Dusan Vlahovic?
Vlahovic only transferred from Fiorentina to the Allianz Stadium in January 2022, but he has already established himself as a key member of the first team. Last season, Massimiliano Allegri gave him 22 Serie A starts despite his ten-game injury absence.

Even though he still has three more years left on his contract, the 23-year-old striker has reportedly decided to leave the Italian team during this transfer window in search of a new experience. After establishing himself as their best offensive player during the previous season, he isn’t short of potential suitors having attracted Erik Ten Hag’s attention.

If the Serbian international were to leave the black and white stripes, Manchester Evening News reported back in March that the Red Devils would be first in queue to sign him, and it now appears that they have already taken the first step in that direction.

Vlahovic is a new hire by Man United.
Man United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all eager to reach an agreement before the 2023–24 season, according to Calciomercato (via TEAMtalk). Vlahovic’s agent has reportedly been “speaking” to each of them. His representatives are currently working to “persuade” the trio that he would be worth the asking price, which Juventus has set at €90 million (£77 million).

As a result of Wout Weghorst returning to Burnley after his unsuccessful loan spell, Man United will need to sign a new center-forward this summer. Jacek Kulig’s assessment of Vlahovic as a “goal machine” suggests that Vlahovic might be the ideal replacement.
In his 27 Serie A appearances last season, the World Cup participant, who is naturally left-footed, contributed 12 goals (ten goals and two assists), earning three man-of-the-match awards as a result. However, he also posed a threat even when the ball wasn’t in the goal.

Vlahovic is constantly searching for a breakthrough and would bring the prolific edge that Ten Hag has been missing through the middle recently, potentially making him the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle, so it appears that a transfer is one to watch. During the course of the season, Vlahovic recorded a total of 65 shots, which was more than any other of his fellow teammates, according to FBRef.
