MANCHESTER: Manchester United are among the clubs interested in signing Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic to try their hand at attacking gear.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea are now in contention for the 23-year-old’s honor, although Juventus have yet to express a desire to let him go at the end of the season.
“It is understood Chelsea have not made a bid for Dusan Vlahovic so far. He is one of the most admired strikers at the club but there have been no talks or offers yet.
“Bayern and Man United are in constant contention for Vlahovic, but it is up to Juventus to decide,” said Romano.
Chelsea were previously reported to have made a 70 million pound bid for the former Fiorentina man – who joined Juventus in January last year for 66.6 million pounds.
The Serbian player is said to have a style of play like Manchester City star Erling Haaland.
However the Juve star has struggled to match the acumen of Haaland – who has scored 52 goals in all competitions this season – with Vlahovic netting just 23 goals in 62 appearances for the Old Lady so far.
While with Fiorentina, Vlahovic scored 49 goals in 108 matches.
With United likely to let go of Anthony Martial this summer, Vlahovic is the best option to take on United’s neighbors Manchester City who have already clinched the Premier League title this season and are still in the running for a treble.
