Manchester United ‘make Edin Dzeko transfer approach’ on deadline day

Man Utd: Solskjaer says he’s not thinking about title race

Manchester United have made an approach for Edin Dzeko on transfer deadline day, according to reports in Italy. The Roma striker is looking to leave the club. And he could be poised for a shock switch to Old Trafford, potentially as a replacement for Odion Ighalo. 

Manchester United have lost Ighalo, with the striker returning to Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

And, now, Corriere dello Sport in Italy claim United have now made an approach for Dzeko.

The Bosnia international previously played in the Premier League with Manchester City, helping them win league titles under Manuel Pellegrini and Roberto Mancini.

It’s claimed that the player’s relationship with manager Paulo Fonseca has fractured.

And he’s also unhappy with Ryan Friedkin, son of Roma owner Dan, with the striker ‘annoyed’ at the Stadio Olimpico as a result. 

The report says United have made contact with Dzeko.

It’s likely to have been carried out by his agent Alessandro Lucci, though the report does explain there’s not much time for all parties to come to an agreement.

United have made a habit of signing veteran forwards in recent years.

Ighalo was signed on transfer deadline day a year ago and scored five goals for the club before ultimately falling down Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s pecking order.

Before the Nigeria international the Red Devils swooped for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who impressed after moving from PSG.

And, just back in the summer, United opted to recruit Edinson Cavani after missing out on Jadon Sancho.
