Manchester United are reportedly keen on signing AS Roma star Tammy Abraham as per the report in Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport.
The 24-years-old joined the Serie A giants last summer from Chelsea and took no time to settle down in the new surroundings, scoring 23 goals and notching up four assists in 39 appearances in all competitions.
Following a stellar debut season in the Italian capital, the England International has caught the attention of the Red Devils hierarchy and they are showing active interest in signing the highly-rated striker.
According to the report, many clubs have enquired about the forward’s availability this summer and the record Premier League champions are among them who are ready to place a bid for Abraham.
The report further claims that Roma have no intention of cashing in on their star man and the Englishman will have to remain at the Stadio Olimpico for one more season as per the agreement signed between the two parties.
Manchester United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick who will become the consultant of the club has earlier stated that the Red Devils should sign a young striker in the summer following the departure of Edinson Cavani. Therefore, the Englishman will be a very good replacement for the Uruguay international.
However, Tammy Abraham will be a very expensive option for Manchester United. The former Chelsea man joined the Giallorossi for around €40 million and the record Premier League champions might have to offer around €100 million in order to persuade the Roma hierarchy in selling their starman.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are still looking for a new manager. Erik Ten Hag has been mentioned as the favourite to succeed Ralf Rangnick, however, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is another candidate who is in the race for the job.
Without a manager in charge, the Red Devils are unable to make any approach in the transfer market and they are falling behind their rivals. So, it will be interesting to see how long the Red Devils’ hierarchy will take before appointing the next manager.
