Reports: Man Utd may have clear path to €38m Milan star as Spurs close in on €70m deal

By Oliver Fisher -

Manchester United appear to have a free run at signing AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek as Spurs close in on a big-money deal, reports claim.

The Poland international appears to have an uncertain future with the Rossoneri, having been left out of the starting XI in the back-to-back Serie A wins over Cagliari and Udinese.

The Athletic claimed that Piatek is attracting interest from a number of clubs in England, including the likes of Manchester United, Spurs, Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham United.

Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews.itMilan have set a deadline for Piatek’s potential departure, but that Aston Villa and Crystal Palace have dropped out of the race after signing Mbwana Samatta and Cenk Tosun respectively.

According to the latest from AS, Spurs appear to have sorted their cover for the injured Harry Kane as Willian José is set to sign from Real Sociedad in the next 48 hours. The Brazilian striker has a €70m release clause.

That means that, in theory, Manchester United essentially have clear path to sign Piatek should they wish, assuming that interest from West Ham and Newcastle is not concrete as reports suggest.
