Lille striker David has been rumored to be moving to the Premier League, with both Tottenham and Arsenal showing interest in the past. However, Manchester United could make a move in the summer to secure a cost-effective deal, as David’s contract with Lille expires in a year’s time. Lille might be inclined to sell him to avoid losing him for free later on.
David, at 24, has the potential to improve and has shown his ability to score, with 13 goals this season. Another potential target for Manchester United is Serhou Guirassy, who has scored 19 goals in 16 appearances for Stuttgart this season. Despite having a release clause of only £13m, no club acquired him in the January transfer window.
Manchester United were linked with him last summer and in January, and his consistent goal-scoring record in the Bundesliga makes him an attractive option at a relatively low price. Iranian player Mehdi Taremi is available on a free transfer this summer. He could provide support for Rasmus Hojlund at Old Trafford and may not demand regular game time.
Gabriel Barbosa, also known as ‘Gabigol,’ had a tough time at Inter Milan and then returned to Brazil with Flamengo in 2020. Despite a tough spell, he has scored 142 goals in 257 appearances for Flamengo. His contract expires in December, and Manchester United could secure a favorable deal in the summer, potentially adding depth to their forward line.
Additionally, Everton’s Calvert Lewin will have only a year remaining on his contract in the summer, potentially putting Manchester United in a favorable position to negotiate, as Everton may need to comply with financial regulations.
