Manchester United Linked With Colombian Striker



Image result for duvan zapataManchester United has been linked with a move for Colombian forward Duvan Zapata as they seek a replacement for Romelu Lukaku who quit the club for Inter Milan in the summer.

United is short of fire-power following Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez’s departure to the Serie A side.  Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are currently injured leaving United with 17-year old Mason Greenwood as their only fit center-forward.

Reports in Italy now claim that Unite will swoop for the 28-year old during the January transfer window. According to Calciomercato United are closely monitoring the Colombian international who is on loan at the club from Sampdoria as they view him as an able replacement for Lukaku who quit United leaving them short of options upfront.

The former Napoli and Udinese man scored 28 goals in 48 appearances for Sampdoria last season making him one of the most sought-after strikers in the league. He has already scored four in five for Atalanta this season including a ferocious opener against AS Roma on Wednesday night, a goal that helped his side register a comfortable 2-0 win the capital Rome.

Should he complete a move to Old Trafford, he will become the second Colombian player to turn out for the Red Devils after Radamel Falcao who played for United during the 2014-15 season.
