Manchester United transfer target Arkadiusz Milik could finally be available for sale during the upcoming transfer window – as per reports.
Arkadiusz Milik joined Napoli from Ajax in 2016 for a transfer fee of €32 million and since then the 26-year-old has been and since then the player has been a key performer for the Serie A side.
Last season, the striker netted 20 goals in all competitions for Napoli and this campaign he has found the back of the net 12 times.
But according to various reports, Napoli are now ready to cash in on him but up until now, the club were not ready to take anything less than £60m for the Polish international.
Now though with the pandemic expected to cause massive financial problems in the coming few weeks, there have been reports of Napoli lowering their asking rate to just £30m which is a great sign for Manchester United.
Recently even Ole Solskjaer had hinted that this slump could affect the transfer market adversely which in hindsight might be a good thing for a club like United since they’re financially strong.
The Man United said: “Football is going to get back to normality at one point, and it’s very important we’re ready when that happens.
“We want to be the best at everything, and of course now is a chance to spend more time, you discuss players, discuss plans, we’ve evaluated what we need, of course with the coaching staff we’ve looked at games, evaluated games, discussing on video calls like this.
“Then, the market, who knows how the market is going to react to this? Who knows which clubs need to sell players?
“There might be just a situation there where you can exploit, and I know that we at Man United we are one of the biggest, and the biggest, financially well-off.
“I’m sure we are capable, when we get back to normality, that we can do the business that we want to.”
And now that Napoli had lowered the transfer price for Arkadiusz Milik there’s every chance Man United will try and sign him since Solskjaer badly needs a new centre-forward for the upcoming season.
United are expected to offer Odion Ighalo a new deal at the club but Milik will be more of a long-term solution since the Nigerian is already on the wrong side of his playing career.
