Paper Talk: Man Utd offered chance to sign top Tottenham striker target

Manchester United have been offered the chance to snatch a top Tottenham target, while West Ham are ready to make a last-ditch bid for a Hull attacker, according to Friday’s Paper Talk.



Manchester United have reportedly been offered striker Willian Jose on loan by Real Sociedad, but talks over a move to Tottenham are still ongoing.

Spurs’ move for Willian Jose had stalled because Real Sociedad were asking for around £25m for the attacker.

But while discussions with Spurs are continuing over a possible loan deal, United have also been offered the opportunity to sign the 28-year-old on a temporary deal, according to Sky Sports.

United, along with Tottenham, are desperate to sign a striker before Friday’s 11pm transfer deadline and are seeking a short-term option after Marcus Rashford was injured.

The Red Devils are also believed to have had a bid for their former frontman Josh King turned down by Bournemouth.


Brazilian forward Jose has missed Sociedad’s last three matches after asking to be left out of the squad until his future was decided.

He has scored 46 goals in 113 league appearances for the Spanish club.
