Man United have had ‘some contact’ with Jamie Vardy over potential move

Man United have been in contact with Jamie Vardy over possible signing the veteran this summer.

There’s no doubt about it, Manchester United absolutely need to bring in at least one proven goalscorer before the window slams shut.

Erik ten Hag is no doubt growing in frustration with the United board, who have failed to deliver the Dutch manager his transfer targets to this point.

With Cristiano Ronaldo still seemingly pushing for a move, the Old Trafford club need to go out there and acquire someone who can start in his place.

Enter, Jamie Vardy.

According to CaughtOffside, United have had ‘some contact’ with the English striker over a potential transfer this summer.

The report adds that Vardy is seen as one of a number of players who could leave the Foxes before the end of the current window, while United seem to be ‘stepping up their interest’ in the star who has 226 career goals. If an agreement can be reached, it’s worth noting that the Reds are only prepared to offer a one-year deal.

CaughtOffside adds that the Reds are ‘desperate’ to sign a new attacker this summer, due to the aforementioned doubt about Ronaldo’s future coupled with inconsistent performers from their other big earners in the position.

Vardy, aged 35, will likely be given a huge wage hike if he does make the move to Old Trafford this summer, though I do wonder he’d be willing to leave Leicester City. Famously, Vardy chose to remain at the King Power amid serious interest from Arsenal a half-decade ago.

I do like the idea behind this one. Vardy is someone who’d score bucket-loads of goals if the service is right. He also has that bit of fight and spirit in him. Our dressing room could absolutely do with more of that.
