Gabriele Marcotti has appeared to confirm that Manchester United are interested in signing Andrea Belotti, Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils ended their interest in Atletico Madrid striker last month despite Griezmann being linked with a move to Manchester United throughout the 2016-17 season.

Indeed, Griezmann was thought to be closing in on a lucrative switch to the Europa League winners after the striker rated his chances of moving to Old Trafford as “six out of ten”.

However, Manchester United are now reportedly looking to a sign an out-and-out number nine instead of Griezmann given the uncertainty surrounding Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is thought to be one of Jose Mourinho’s top targets, while Real Madrid centre-forward Alvaro Morata is desperate to leave The Bernabeu.

Serie A expert Marcotti believes Manchester United will be offered a number of strikers now that the Red Devils have made it know that their preferred signing would be a No9.

“You’ve got Andrea Belotti with a release clause. You’ve got Romelu Lukaku who has made his intentions clear via his agent,” Marcotti told ESPN FC.

“You’ve got Morata who is not starting despite being extremely prolific.

“Put those factors together with Manchester United realising their priority is a No9, inevitably it was going to result in a lot of pitching to Manchester United.”
