Man United told to sign these two top strikers in summer transfer window
Steve Nicol believes Manchester United should sign Andrea Belotti and Alvaro Morata in the summer transfer window
Steve Nicol has encouraged Manchester United to sign both Andrea Belotti and Alvaro Morata in the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a host of forwards this summer after Manchester United sealed a return to the Champions League.
France international Antoine Griezmann was touted as Manchester United’s top target before the 25-year-old committed to Atletico Madrid following los Rojiblancos’ transfer ban.
Manchester United are now thought to have made Real Madrid star Morata their top target in the 2017 summer transfer window, even though the former Juventus man struggled to secure regular first-team football at The Bernabeu last term.
Belotti is another striker rumoured to be on Manchester United’s radar, although the Italian forward’s price tag of £88m could cool the Red Devils’ interest.
Manchester United have boasted some formidable duos over the season, including Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke, plus Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Speaking to ESPN FC about whether it would make sense to sign Belotti and Morata, former Liverpool defender Nicol said:
“If you’ve got three or four options up front and all guys who have shown they can score goals, it’s never a bad thing.”
Manchester United completed the signing of Victor Lindelof in a £30.7m deal from Portuguese champions Benfica earlier this month.
