“Man United is my dream” – 53-goals striker desperate to work under Mourinho
According to the reports, PSV striker Jurgen Locadia is dreaming of joining Manchester United and has a plan in mind to work his way up to the Old Trafford side.
The 23-year-old Locadia, who can also play out wide due to his versatility, has long been considered a huge talent in Dutch football, and has a strong record of 53 goals in 160 matches for Eredivisie giants.
Speaking about his ambitions, the Netherlands Under-21 international admits he’d love to play for the Red Devils, and thinks he can do so if he follows in the footsteps of his former team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum.
During his interview, the young striker admitted that he could play for a smaller club in the Premier League before finally getting his ‘dream’ transfer to the Theatre of Dreams.
He said: ‘Manchester United is my dream, but via an intermediate step. I like the path Georginio Wijnaldum has walked, from Newcastle United to Liverpool.’
It remains to be seen if the Red Devils are interested in Jurgen Locadia, but the striker is the holder of an impressive record, when in 2012 he became the first player since all the way back in 1969 to score a hat-trick on his Eredivisie debut.
Man United ready to offer 26-year-old star in order to agree £183.5m double transfer
According to the latest transfer news, Manchester United are prepared to offer £183.5m plus their goalkeeper David de Gea in order to seal the transfers of Real Madrid duo Alvaro Morata and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Both players have been heavily linked with moves to Manchester United in recent days. The Red Devils are believed to have already agreed personal terms with Morata while Ronaldo shocked Los Blancos by revealing he wants to leave this summer.
The 32-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo has been infuriated by the Spanish authorities’ claims he has committed tax fraud and has not been impressed with the response of Real Madrid to the allegations.
The Champions League all-time leading scorer has denied the charges and has informed Real Madrid his decision to leave Spain is final.
Man United helped transform the iconic No.7 into one of the world’s best and have always hoped the 32-year-old would return to Old Trafford.
And Italian newspaper Tuttosport suggest that the Red Devils are prepared to go all out to secure Ronaldo’s and Morata’s signature.
Man United are preparing to offer De Gea to Real as well as around £183m in transfer fees in exchange for Morata and Ronaldo.
Man United on alert as PSG ready to meet £87m price for Mourinho’s target
According to the reports, Manchester United are on alert as Paris Saint-Germain are ready to pay the £87m release clause to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper and Jose Mourinho’s top target Jan Oblak.
PSG are looking for a big-name signing in a goalkeeper position this summer as they could do with upgrading current number one Kevin Trapp, and Atleti shot-stopper seems to be their top target.
The highly-rated Slovenia international has been linked several times with a move to Man United this summer, with the Premier League giants also facing doubts over the future of their number one David de Gea.
And now, PSG are believed to be stepping up their interest and could beat the Red Devils to Jan Oblak’s signature with an offer that would break the world transfer record for a goalkeeper.
As per the reports from Goal, the French club are ready to match the £87m release clause of the 24-year-old goalkeeper and bring him at Parc Des Princes.
The incredible form of Jan Oblak in La Liga suggests he could be worth the gamble, but it could be a worry for United if they do end up losing De Gea to Real Madrid.
