Report: Man Utd in talks with Milan over €35m striker deal; Spurs, Newcastle the competition

By Oliver Fisher -

Manchester United have joined three of their Premier League rivals in the race to sign AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek, it is reported.

The Poland international continues to be repeatedly linked with an exit in January having fallen out of favour with the Rossoneri.

Polish journalist Piotr Kozminski of the ‘Daily Super Express’ recently confirmed his belief that Piatek should leave this month, and that a move to England is most likely with Spurs leading the chase for the €35m man.

However, according to David Ornstein for The Athletic, Manchester United have now joined the chasing pack and have asked Milan to keep them informed of updates regarding Piatek’s future.

Ornstein adds that the Rossoneri hierarchy would either allow Piatek to leave on loan with an obligation to buy or on a permanent deal for a fee of €35m – the same as they paid to Genoa to acquire him a year ago.

The report adds though that Spurs, Newcastle and Aston Villa are all still interested in the 24-year-old, which backs up Kozminski’s claims about multiple English sides being in the running.
