Mourinho will Launch Assault to Agree $21million Playmaker Signing for Man Utd

Liverpool have been interested in signing Senegalese international and Lazio star Keita Balde for quite some time.

The Reds even sent scouts to monitor (via Corriere dello Sport) his performances in the African Cup of Nations but now, arch rivals Manchester United are ready to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.

According to reports (SW via Il Tempo), Jose Mourinho is ready to launch an assault to hire the services of the African star.

Balde’s current deal with Lazio will expire at the end of the next campaign. As per the provided Sport Witness link, he has refused to extend his stay and is rated around 20 million euros ($21million).

The 22-year-old star is a versatile playmaker, who is mainly deployed on the left flank but can also play effectively as a secondary striker.

In the current campaign, Keita has featured in 25 league games for the Serie A side, scored 8 goals and also provided 3 assists. He made his senior international debut back in March 2016, since then, in 12 games, he has netted 3 goals.

Balde is a talented prospect but United need proven quality stars like Griezmann and James to improve their attack. In your opinion, should Mourinho sign Keita Balde?

    This is nothing to be called than fooling around.
    there are more talented players with less expectation who can play and prove their worth without pressure. If you want to sign player, avoid too much classic player because their expectations will be very high and may certainly flopped due to one reason or another…
    JM, be wise… Go for either of ANDRE SILVA FROM PORTO, ANDREAS BELLOTI FROM LAZLO, LOZANO HIRVING FROM PACHUCA. they have less clause and will highly honoured the signature of a great club like Manchester United… they have plenty to offer the world. Ibramovich are worthless, I even hate him more when he called himself god… imagine, he will never succeed with such idea in mind.

    That is BS to think that a player that has not done nothing for the team to come to Man U. Just forget about it and bring in the Griezmans, Dier, Kroos, Varane, Fabinho among other players that have done great things for their teams and among other great players. We are Man U and that says enough about the quality of players that we can bring in.
