Man Utd in concrete talks with super agent Joorabchian for star, Ten Hag wants him

Manchester United have opened concrete talks with agent Kia Joorabchian about a summer move for Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg.

The Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag wants the Netherlands international as he is keen on bolstering his attack having lost Anthony Martial.

Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho are also expected to be sold, and Man United need to acquire quality options in the final third.

However, Man United are not the only club keen on Zirkzee, with AC Milan looking to lure him to San Siro.

They have a chance to hijack the move as Milan have not reached an agreement with Bologna and the 23-year-old, and they are working on securing a verbal agreement.

He has a £34 million release clause, which makes him a very attractive option for suitors. Man United could sign him without worrying about breaking Profit and Sustainability rules.

While Rasmus Hojlund had a decent debut Premier League campaign, he needs quality cover and a challenger for his spot in the team, and Zirkzee fits the bill.

He ended the season with 11 goals and four assists in 34 Serie A games, helping Bologna secure Champions League football. He has been tipped to improve by playing for a top side.

Zirkzee bagged 16 goals and nine assists with Anderlecht in 2021-22, and the former Bayern Munich striker could be perfect for Man United.
