Man Utd in Real Madrid transfer talks as Solskjaer turns to surprise signing – .

Manchester United have reportedly opened surprise transfer talks with Real Madrid in a bid to further bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attacking options.
United have already significantly boosted their attacking options having spent £ 73million to bring in Jadon Sancho. This allowed director of football John Murtough to focus on their defense afterwards. To that end, an agreement to bring in Raphael Varane is expected to be signed and sealed this week.

But now reflections on how to further strengthen the United squad before the window closes are accelerating. Solskjaer was apparently looking to strengthen his full-back options, with Kieran Trippier heavily linked. However, Tuesday paper discussion explained why this track has now turned cold after a change of mind from the United boss.

Instead, it looks like there is a slight change in tactics at Old Trafford this season. And it looks like Solskjaer is considering dropping one of his defensive midfielders, either Scott McTominay or Fred, to welcome another striker to the side.

The likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Dan James, Amad Diallo and Sancho ensure that there are plenty of attack options. However, in the middle United can only really appeal to Edinson Cavani, although Greenwood remains an option as well.

In order to increase their options, Daily Express cites a report saying United are now turning to Luka Jovic.

The Serbian striker signed a £ 52million deal with Eintracht Frankfurt two summers ago. However, he struggled to adapt at the Bernabeu, having only scored twice in La Liga.

Indeed, he was cleared to return to Frankfurt on loan last season, where he scored four times in 18 appearances.

Despite his struggles, Solskjaer is considered a big fan of the 23-year-old. Additionally, he is said to want to help Jovic regain his confidence and relaunch his career at Old Trafford.

Indeed, the report claims United have opened talks with Real over his potential signing.

Although there is no word on the fees, LIKE said earlier in June that Los Blancos would seek a deal of around £ 35million.

Time will tell if United move forward with a potential move.

But if they can get a player like the one who shone for Frankfurt in 2018/19, it could be a real blow.

Jovic ready to follow Varane

If United took the step, he would have a familiar face at Old Trafford in the form of Varane.

A deal to sign the World Cup winner was announced as early as July 27 after a deal, worth around £ 35million, was struck with Real Madrid.

Solskjaer had charged Varane could be signed in time to make his debut in Premier League opener with Leeds.

However, with the passing of time, this seems more and more unlikely.

The defender anyway broke his silence on the impending transfer.

Publish to its nearly 16 million Instagram followers, Varane uploaded a video of himself juggling a ball in a garden.

It is not known whether Varane has found a home in Manchester or if he is staying at property owned by the club.

Indeed, the location of the video was tagged ‘Manchester, United Kingdom’. The defender posted the video with the caption “Quarantine practice! Indicating that the movement stays in place.

Early is currently in self-isolation due to government overseas travel regulations regarding the coronavirus.

But as soon as his period of isolation is over, the 28-year-old will be unveiled as a Manchester United player.
