Manchester United have fresh discussions with Joshua Zirkzee entourage

Manchester United are reportedly keen on signing 23-year-old Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee in the summer transfer window.

Joshua Zirkzee has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months. But Manchester United and Bologna have not been able to finalise an agreement. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils have now held fresh discussions with the player’s representatives regarding a summer move. Manager Erik ten Hag has spoken to the player regarding a move as well.

The striker is valued at €40 million due to a release clause in his contract, and Manchester United have the financial muscle to get the deal done. It will be interesting to see if they step up their efforts to sign the player in the next few days.

It is no secret that Manchester United need to sign a quality striker, and the Dutch attacker would be the ideal acquisition for them. Zirkzee is young enough to improve further, and he has the physical and technical attributes to adapt to English football.

Furthermore, the 23-year-old is more than just a goal scorer, and he will add creativity to the side as well. On paper, he looks like the ideal partner for Rasmus Hojlund. He will add goals and creativity to the Manchester United attack and help them compete for major trophies next season.

Manchester United need quality players like Joshua Zirkzee

Manchester United had a disappointing season by their standards, and they missed out on Champions League qualification last season. They will look to bounce back strongly and signing quality players is the only way forward.

It will be interesting to see if the Red Devils can secure an agreement with the player first and then finalise the deal with the Italian club. Bologna have set a reasonable valuation for the player, and Zirkzee should be able to justify the investment in the coming seasons.

Manchester United need to add more quality and depth to their attack if they want to compete with Arsenal and Manchester City for the league title. Rasmus Hojlund is quite young and he needs more support in the attack. The 23-year-old attacker could transform them in the final third. Zirkzee could sort out the Manchester United attacking unit for a foreseeable future.
