Man Utd chief Ed Woodward offered Torino star Andrea Belotti ahead of transfer window

Manchester United have been ‘proposed’ a transfer deal to sign Torino striker Andrea Belotti, reports claim. The Italy international has scored 15 goals this season and is widely expected to leave the club when the summer window opens. And Old Trafford could be his next destination should Ed Woodward sanction a move.

United were strongly linked with Belotti back in the summer of 2017 after missing out on Antoine Griezmann, who stayed at Atletico Madrid.

However, the Red Devils ended up signing Romelu Lukaku instead, forking out an eyewatering £75million to sign the Belgian from Everton.

Now, though, CalcioMercato claim that United have been offered the chance to sign Belotti in this summer’s transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants another striker to compliment Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood in attack.

And that’s regardless of whether or not the Red Devils swoop for Odion Ighalo, who has impressed since his move from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

It’s claimed ‘intermediaries’ are the ones who have offered United the chance to sign Belotti at the end of the campaign.

But the club are yet to give positive feedback and appear focused on signing other transfer targets instead.

Torino chief Cairo Torino is open to letting the Italian hitman leave the club this summer after years of glittering service.

But with United refusing to show interest, Belotti could be on the move to the Premier League with Everton instead.

United are, though, planning to recruit another striker.

They retain an interest in Erling Haaland, despite the Borussia Dortmund star turning down a move to the Theatre of Dreams back in January.

Haaland is also being considered by Real Madrid but that he used to play under Solskjaer at Molde could work in their favour.

Timo Werner is being eyed by United after blitzing the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig, scoring 21 goals in the league this season.

And Lyon hotshot Moussa Dembele is another target for the Red Devils having impressed in Ligue 1, finding the net 16 times.

Another player to have been linked with United is Harry Kane, who could quit Tottenham due to their failure to get anywhere near winning the Premier League title in recent years.

And pundit Alan McInally has endorsed a move, saying: “Harry Kane would bring a presence into the team that they [Manchester United] haven’t got.

“Marcus Rashford is fantastic, he’s carried one of the biggest football teams in the world, but he’s too young to do it.

“He hasn’t had any help.

“Bring Harry Kane into that team and there’s a different dynamic at Manchester United.

“He would make them a shoo-in for the top four, and pushing the top two.”

“No question, if Manchester United get another midfield player and put Harry Kane in the team, they’ll close the gap on the top two teams who have sprinted away.”
