Manchester United Close on Signing a 24-year-old Striker this Summer

Summer is boiling at Old Trafford with the club shaking the transfer market as they look away to come back at the top of English football after a period of a complicated life.

After completing a Jadon Sancho deal, the Manchester club has now turned its attention to a new centre back and they eye Real Madrid star Raphael Varane. Also, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to add a new face to the attacking list and reports claim his side has stepped a major step in signing Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, 24.

The Englishman netted an impressive 21 goals in 39 appearances last summer which was more than that of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Edison Cavani. Bruno Fernandes with 28 goals was the only United player who had more than the Everton striker.

Calvert-Lewin is believed to be a perfect replacement for Rumelu Lukaku and he could add value to the Manchester attack. English star will help the Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani who is growing in age and may not be able to play every game in the coming season and so a backup is needed.

Martial is set to leave Old Trafford after a difficult season and Tottenham are interested in the Frenchman. Martial scored 7 goals in all competitions last season a performance that won't guarantee him frequent starts next season.
