Manchester United have already completed three signings this summer by hiring the services of Dalot (fullback), Fred (midfielder) and Grant (goalie). Now, reports suggest that they have a move ready to secure their fourth signing.
Few days back, renowned German outlet Sport Bild reported that the Red Devils want to sign Croatian international Ante Rebic, who should cost around €50million.
As per the latest update provided by Italian source Corriere di Verona yesterday, the Old Trafford club are ready to make an offer of €50million to get star ‘under contract’.
The Frankfurt attacker mainly plays on the left wing in the German Bundesliga but at the 2018 World Cup, he was mostly deployed on the right wing and Perisic played on the left flank.
Rebic only got one game in his preferred position and that was the second group fixture against Argentina in which he scored his only goal of the tournament.
He featured in 28 games in all competitions for the German club last season and directly contributed in 12 goals (9 goals and 3 assists).
As far as United are concerned, they splashed the cash to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in the January transfer window and the Chilean international is the first choice left winger at the club. Lingard normally starts on the right wing and he has been brilliant under the guidance of Mourinho.
The former Porto boss is willing to offload a versatile attacker in the form Martial (Don Balon) and Rebic, who can play anywhere in the offense, could be a quality replacement for the French international.
