Man United are reportedly in talks to sign Luka Jovic, who is a great fan of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United could be on the verge of making a move for Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic before the transfer window closes.
According to rumours, Manchester United and Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic are considering a possible transfer. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team already has a strong forward line, especially with the addition of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. They are, however, still looking for late acquisitions as they aim for their first Premier League title since 2013, when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.
So far, United has had a successful transfer window, with the Red Devils demonstrating ambition in the market.
Tom Heaton has signed on a free transfer from Aston Villa, with the veteran now poised to jostle it out with David De Gea and Dean Henderson for a starting berth.
Sancho arrived from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £73 million, making him one of the club’s most expensive signings in history.
And United are hopeful of officially unveiling Raphael Varane this week, with the Real Madrid star currently in Manchester after arriving from Spain.
Up until now, it’s been assumed that Solskjaer’s side will go after a right-back or midfielder before the transfer window slams shut.
However, according to Tribal Football, the Red Devils are looking for a new striker, with Real Madrid striker Jovic now being explored.

Despite his struggles for form over his two years at the Bernabeu, Solskjaer is said to be a great fan of the 23-year-old.
When Real Madrid paid £52 million to sign him from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019, they thought they had a winner on their hands.
However, since his major move, the Serbian international has only scored two La Liga goals and spent the second half of last season with his previous club, where he scored four times in 18 games.
Regardless, United is unrestricted.
Back in the January transfer window of 2020, Solskjaer and his staff reportedly wanted Jovic ahead of Odion Ighalo, but were forced to settle for the Nigerian international instead.
