Dusan Vlahovic’s agent has held talks with Man Utd over summer transfer

The representative of Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic has held talks with Manchester United over a summer transfer, according to Calciomercato.

The Red Devils recently agreed to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, and they are currently in talks with Inter Milan for goalkeeper Andre Onana.

United are also on the search for a new centre-forward, and Calciomercato report that Vlahovic’s agent Darko Ristic has been contact with the club.

The Red Devils are yet to express an interest in signing the Serbian, but it is claimed that Juventus won’t entertain his departure for less than €90m.

United should sign Goncalo Ramos over Vlahovic

Vlahovic was one of the most sought-after strikers during his time at Fiorentina. He netted a stunning 34 Serie A goals in 2021 for the Florence outfit.

However, he has struggled to find the same consistency since his move to Turin in January 2022. Vlahovic has just 17 league goals from 42 appearances.

The 23-year-old has also had a tough time with niggling injuries. Hence, it is unsurprising that Juventus have not received any formal offers for him.

In our view, United should focus on landing Goncalo Ramos over Vlahovic. Ramos was tremendous for Benfica last term with 27 goals and 12 assists.

The Portuguese is a more modern striker than the Serbian. Aside from his goalscoring, he has excelled with his high pressing and likes to win duels.

The 21-year-old has also caught the eye with his brilliant hold-up and link-up play. He has the vision to provide key passes on the counter-attack.

Benfica currently value Ramos at €80m. He would represent a better piece of investment. He has a higher ceiling than Vlahovic and could be a world-class striker in future.
