Man United have apparently been offered the chance to sign AS Roma attacker, Nicolo Zaniolo.
In Erik ten Hag, Manchester United have a manager whom they trust wholeheartedly. The road to success is a long and winding one, though whatever he wants, he should be given.
The gaffer has a clear way of playing, which requires certain players. Slowly but surely, the squad will be tinkered to fit those needs.
In terms of transfer gossip, the latest story comes from Italy, namely Arena Napoli, with an English translation via the Daily Express. Their article links AS Roma’s attacker, Nicolo Zaniolo, with a possible Old Trafford switch.
According to the report, United have been offered the chance to sign the 23-year-old attacker, who is keen on a Premier League move. So-much-so that he sat out of AS Roma’s most recent game.
As things stand, Zaniolo apparently prefers a move to Tottenham Hotspur, though AS Roma have given United the opportunity to make their move if they so choose. Right now, it remains to be seen whether Ten Hag is keen on bringing in the Italian.
What’s appealing about Zaniolo is his positional versatility. His ability to play in every position behind the striker could help Ten Hag, particularly as his squad is thin in that area of the field.
Aged just 23, Zaniolo is someone who can be moulded to fit the style of play that Ten Hag wants to adopt, with the deal likely to be cheaper considering the fact that the player is actively pushing for a move away from his current club.
I like the idea behind this one, though if his heart is set on joining Tottenham Hotspur, then it may be tough.
