Manchester United is reportedly considering a move for former Chelsea striker
According to rumours, Manchester United is interested in signing Tammy Abraham, a former Chelsea striker.
The 24-year-old presently plays for AS Roma after joining for £34 million plus add-ons last summer. The Blues have a £68 million buy-back clause. However, they will only be able to activate it in 2023.
United could bring the striker back to England this summer, according to Il Messaggero (via Football Italia).
This season, the England international has been in sensational form, assisting Roma in securing European football for next season. In 40 appearances for the Italian club, he has scored 23 goals and provided four assists.
As a result, the Italian club may demand a large sum for him. Manchester United are in desperate need of a striker this summer. The forward line for the Red Devils is riddled with inconsistencies.
Anthony Martial is presently on loan at Sevilla and is likely to sign a permanent contract with the club next season. When Edinson Cavani’s contract expires in the summer, he is also anticipated to leave. Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford’s futures at the club are still in doubt.
The signing of a striker with Premier League experience might be a huge boost for United. Abraham scored 26 goals in 89 Premier League games for Chelsea and Aston Villa (on loan).
Manchester United will complete the season without a trophy for the fifth time in a row. They are still undecided about playing in the Champions League next season. They are now in sixth place in the rankings, four points behind Arsenal, who have a game in hand.
They require reinforcements in almost every part of the field, including defense, midfield, and attack. They are also looking for a long-term management. As a result, Manchester United supporters can anticipate a busy summer for the club.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is still dealing with sanctions within the club. In the summer, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Cesar Azpilicueta’s contracts will expire. They’ll most likely depart, and the Blues will require replacements.
However, due to the sanctions, they may not be allowed to recruit fresh players. The entire list of sanctions may be found here.
It will be interesting to observe how the London club develops in the future.
