Repubblica: Man Utd have concrete interest in €38m Milan man to replace injured star

By Oliver Fisher -

Manchester United are keen on completing a move for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek this month, according to a report.

David Ornstein of The Athletic claimed that Piatek is attracting interest from a number of clubs in England, including the likes of United, Spurs, Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham United – but that Milan are demanding €38m.

In addition, Ornstein – a well-respected journalist in England – added that Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has seen a swap deal offer rejected for the striker involving defender Juan Foyth and midfielder Victor Wanyama.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica – as cited by MilanNews.it – Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still wants to sign a new No.9 in the last nine days of the window after losing Marcus Rashford to injury.

One of their targets is Piatek, who is currently out of favour under Milan head coach Stefano Pioli having started the last two Serie A fixtures from the bench.
