Manchester United aren’t struggling in the final third after scoring two or more goals in 21 of their last 24 games across the board, but Eric ten Hag hasn’t gotten much change from his center-forwards. As a result, the Red Devils have been linked with a host of strikers, but Calciomercato. says Dusan Vlahovic might be high on their list of transfer targets.
Anthony Martial is United’s fourth-highest scorer in the Premier League (3) despite making just nine appearances this season, but he’s missed months of the campaign due to injury.
Cristiano Ronaldo had netted just once in the top flight before having his contract released, so he wasn’t providing much value to United either. And with Wout Weghorst failing to score in seven league games since joining on loan in January, it’s little wonder Ten Hag is ‘in the front row’ to sign the Serbian striker this summer.
Vlahovic joined Juventus from Fiorentina in 2022 and has gone on to make 46 appearances in all competitions, scoring 19 goals with six assists. The 23-year-old has eight goals from 16 Serie A games this season but has failed to score in six of his last seven league outings, so his future in Turin could be uncertain.
Vlahovic has spent three months out with injury too, so he’s only netted twice in Serie A since October. Juventus spent €81m (£71.7m) on the 23-year-old, so they would likely want most of that money back if they were to agree on a sale. Vlahovic has three-and-a-half years remaining on his deal, so the Old Lady isn’t obligated to cash in early for less.
Calciomercato says Bayern Munich is showing an interest in the Serb too, so United has a competition to procure his signature.
