Manchester United signed superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer last summer and the retired Swedish international proved to be brilliant under the management of Mourinho.
This summer, the Red Devils need to sign a top center forward, who will serve the club in the years to come and the latest name in the lime light is Alexandre Lacazette.
The Les Bleus center forward is set to leave Lyon in the summer transfer window and more than a few top clubs are interested in hiring his services. Not to forget, he has a mammoth release clause of 60 million pounds (€69million) in his contract (Mirror).
Yesterday, Mirror reported that Jose Mourinho is set to make an offer worth 50 million pounds to secure his signature.
The British source claim that the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing him as well but the Old Trafford club have the financial power to outbid all the rivals in terms of wages.
The 26-year-old French international has been in fantastic form for Lyon in the past few years. In the recently concluded season, Lacazette netted 37 goals and provided 5 assists in 45 appearances for the Ligue 1 club.
United do have a quality starlet in their ranks in the form of Marcus Rashford but the teenage England international still needs to learn and gain more experience to become the first choice striker.
As per the provided Mirror link, United also have sights on stars like Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku. In your opinion, who should Manchester United sign to improve their strike-force?
