Manchester United will be one of the most active clubs during the winter transfer window. With less than two months to go for the transfer window, the Red Devils are already aware of the price that they will have to pay for this Roma star.

Manchester United are in dire need of opening of winter transfer window. The Red Devils are in a hunt for a defender and an attacking player. Considering the impact of their failed pursuits on the pitch this season, Manchester United won’t be in the mood to repeat the same mistakes. The Red Devils are already scouting a lot of young talent. With less than two months to go for the transfer window, Roma has put a price tag on this Manchester United target.

Roma reportedly want at least €50 million for winger Cengiz Under. According to Corriere dello Sport, Manchester United and Barcelona are all ‘ready to invest this figure’ for the Turkish international. It seems United want to get rid of Alexis Sanchez and believe Cengiz Under will be his perfect replacement.

Barcelona are also rumoured to be unhappy with their summer signing Malcom and are considering a bid for Under. The Red Devils are unhappy with Sanchez’s performance since his arrival to Old Trafford. Roma will be willing to sell Under if the price is right. It is believed that his sale would “heal” their budget. Also with that budget, they would be able to use the money received to replace him.

The 21-year-old Turkish player arrived at the Stadio Olimpico last year for an initial fee of €13.4 million. Since then Under has eight goals and two assists under his name. Under continued his rich form this season as well. He has bagged three goals and four assists in 10 appearances so far this season. However, his rich form has garnered the eyes of top European clubs.

Author’s take:

It will be interesting to see what Under will decide. Considering he joined Roma last season, he will be reluctant to leave Roma. He has been giving some stellar performances for Roma since the past one year. Under should stay at Roma to gain more maturity before making the big money move. Considering the plethora of options Manchester United have in wings if Jose wants to land Under he will have to get rid of the likes of Martial and Alexis Sanchez.
