Manchester United are in search of a top class No.9 to reinforce their strike-force in the summer transfer window.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was Mourinho’s main center forward this season and was in top form before getting injured last month in the Europa League tie against Anderlecht.
The former Chelsea boss needs to replace the legendary striker and a few quality names have been in the lime light. We recently covered a report (via Daily Mail) that United are prepared to pay a huge sum to hire the services of Italian international and Torino star Andrea Belotti.
Now, according to the latest reports going on in the media, Mourinho is ready to hire the services of Argentine star Sergio Aguero from rivals and neighbors Manchester City (The Times).
As per the provided Times link, Jose is expected to get his approach rejected by Pep Guardiola but he thinks that the former Atletico Madrid striker is the perfect man to replace someone as good as Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The South American star has been City’s main center forward since 2011 and has so far netted 31 goals in 42 appearances for them in the current campaign.
Aguero’s current contract with the Sky Blues will expire in 2019 and he is valued at €80.8million as per CIES Football Observatory.
Sergio is a proven Premier League striker but he will turn 29 next month and has been injury prone at times as well. Not to forget, Belotti is only 23. In your opinion, should United sign Andrea or Aguero?
