Man Utd: Long Time Target Finally Released, Cavani’s “Alleged” Replacement Headed for Belgium

Kevin Strootman

According to Fabrizio Romano, Olympique Marseille are planning on disposing Kevin Strootman this summer because they no longer see him as a fit for the club. The 26 year old is currently in talks with Hellas Verona over a long term deal and it seems that an agreement might be struck within the next two weeks. Strootman has not been on the market for long which means that he is currently on high demand and Verona are leading the race probably because of their Europa Conference League qualification.

Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the player for quite a while now and if there is any definite time for a move to be made. It should be right about now when the midfielder is vulnerable to joining any club. Ten Hag does not approve of the transfer move but his hand might be forced to thumb it since all of Manchester United’s midfield targets are joining other clubs.

Sebastiano Esposito

Another player who is slipping from Manchester United’s grasp is Mexican striker Sebastiano Esposito who is headed for Anderlecht. The FC Basel talisman was top on the recruitment list of Ralf Ragnick for the summer transfer window since the German tactician believed that he would perfectly work in tandem with Cristiano Ronaldo in attack. Esposito is known to be a clinical finisher especially during counter attacks since his finishing as well as positional awareness always put him perfect scenerios for goalscoring opportunities.

Many believed that Esposito would be the perfect replacement for Edinson Cavani who recently left the club after the expiry of his one year contract. Anderlecht have however won the race and are preparing to unveil their new player very soon after he signs all the requisite paperwork.
