Manchester United have joined the race to sign a Real Madrid attacking flop, while Tottenham are trying to snatch a Ligue 1 defender, according to Friday’s Euro Paper Talk.

 

MAN UTD LOOKING TO STRIKE JOVIC DEAL

Manchester United are reportedly ready to rival AC Milan for the signing of Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been in the hunt for a new No 9 since Romelu Lukaku was allowed to leave for Inter Milan last summer.

However, he was thwarted in bids to bring in the likes of Moussa Dembele, Timo Werner, Krzystof Piatek, Paulo Dybala and Erling Haaland.

Milan were considered favourites to bring in the Serbian. With Tuttosport (via MilanNews) confirming that prospective new manager Ralf Rangnick wants to work with Jovic at the San Siro.

But according to Fichajes, as cited by SempreMilan, United have entered the race to land Jovic. Solskjaer wants to provide competition for Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Grenwood and the on-loan Odion Ighalo.

The report adds that the Red Devils are planning to take Jovic, who has also been linked with Arsenal, on loan for a season with an option to buy.

Real are said to be ready to part company with the frontman they bought for €60m last summer. Indeed, Zinedine Zidane is reportedly already pondering moves for new attackers at the Bernabeu.
