Man United approached released Tottenham striker

Manchester United have offered former Tottenham frontman, Fernando Llorente, a two-year contract.

The Spanish striker is currently a free agent after leaving the London club earlier this summer. Manchester United, meanwhile, are open to bolstering their attacking options following Romelu Lukaku’s departure, as well as the likely exit of Alexis Sanchez.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the Red Devils have held talks with the 34-year-old and a two-year deal has been offered to the target man.

Lazio and Napoli are also in the race to sign Fernando Llorente, who netted eight goals for Spurs last term and played a key role in helping the side reach the Champions League final.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial the two focal points of his attack this season and has already said that 17-year-old Mason Greenwood will get more first-team minutes. Manchester United will host Crystal Palace at the Theatre of Dreams in their next Premier League fixture on Saturday.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was handed £100 million to spend in the January transfer window and it is claimed that Jadon Sancho is the main target of the Norwegian boss in the winter.

The Red Devils tried to sign the England international this summer, but Borrusi Dortmund stood firm over their valuation and were not willing to sell their prized asset just yet, and it is suggested that the Bundesliga club demand in the region of £90 million for the talented winger.
