Manchester United are interested in a move for former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
The England international move to Roma last summer, and has since proved to be a major hit, scoring 23 goals, including two in the derby against Lazio at the weekend.
That saw him break Gabriel Batistua’s record for the most goals scored in a single season for the Serie A club.
Chelsea inserted a buy-back clause in his Roma contract that could allow him to return to Stamford Bridge in 2023 for €80 million (£67 million) – nearly double what Roma paid for him – but the current uncertainty surrounding the club means that Manchester United could have the advantage.
Much may depend upon who becomes United permanent manager in the summer and how the preferred candidate intends to shape up his team. However, with Edison Cavani set to leave at the end of the season and Cristiano Ronaldo now 37, their forward line is desperately in need of some youthful reinforcements.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
