Manchester United are reportedly planning a January move for Roma striker Tammy Abraham. La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Chelsea have an option to buy back the former striker. However, the London side is not interested at the moment and United are monitoring the situation closely and it is believed likely they will bring the English player to Old Trafford.
United looking for depth ahead
With United looking to reach the Champions League this season, manager Eric ten Hag is in the market to bring a striker to the club. The Red Devils have now won four of their five league games, placing him fourth in the standings. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford look rejuvenated, but both prefer to play on the wings.
Abraham would be a great addition to United, who have scored 31 goals in 73 appearances for Roma since joining Giallorossi in the summer of 2021.
Furthermore, it is believed that Abraham could demand a salary so high that Roma would not be in a position to compete if United were called up. , and was ignored by England’s World Cup member Gareth Southgate in Qatar.
A golden opportunity for Abraham
Already at home in the Premier League, a move to Abraham would be a smart move for United and could revive his English career. It is not yet known what transfer fee Roma will demand to let Abraham go, but it is believed that the Italian outfit will likely sell the player to raise money.
The striker has forged a great bond with manager Jose Mourinho at Roma and it remains to be seen whether the former United manager will let the striker go without a proper replacement in January.
In other news this week, Manchester United have been linked with Lille’s Jonathan David. Additionally, Joao Felix could be added to that list in the role of an attacking midfielder.
United have also previously liked Dutch forward Cody Gakpo, but the 23-year-old joined Liverpool last week on a £37million deal that could add up to £44m with add-ons.
