Ten Hag receives good news as £70m ‘Goal machine’ gives ‘green-light’ to Man Utd

February 13, 2023

Manchester United could sign Dusan Vlahovic for £70 million if Juventus agrees to let him leave this month or in the summer, according to 90min.

Vlahovic only joined Juventus in January of last year, but given the club’s recent problems, he could be on his way out. Juve was in a strong position at the start of this week, sitting third in Serie A and on track to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

However, when the previous Serie A champions’ previous transfer deals were investigated, it was discovered that there had been foul play. As a result, the Old Lady was docked 15 points, dropping them to tenth place.

Massimiliano Allegri’s team now faces a significant uphill battle in order to qualify for the UCL next season.

According to the source, Vlahovic values playing in the Champions League, and Juventus is willing to sell him this month or in the summer because they understand his situation. The Serie A club wants to recoup the £70 million they paid Fiorentina for him last year.

The Red Devils have been linked with players such as Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen, and Benjamin Sesko in recent weeks. Erik ten Hag is looking for a top-tier forward to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, and Vlahovic has been mentioned as a possible target.

The 23-year-old forward is said to want to play beneath ten Hag at Old Trafford, but the Dutch manager has yet to decide on his top transfer target. Vlahovic could be a good fit for Manchester United, who are in contention to qualify for the Champions League but are in desperate need of a top-tier center forward.

Despite the lack of a suitable center-forward, United is currently succeeding. Wout Weghorst joined as a temporary replacement this month, but ten Hag will almost certainly bring in a long-term replacement in the summer.
