According to sources in France, Manchester United and Newcastle United have both made an attempt to recruit Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy during the January transfer window.
This season, the 27-year-old has been in incredible form for Stuttgart, scoring 16 goals in his first 10 games.
To relieve the pressure on £72 million summer acquisition Rasmus Hojlund, who has made nine Premier League games this season without scoring, United is still looking for a new striker.
On the other hand, Newcastle has struggled this season due to injuries to Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak at various points.
FootMercato reports that AC Milan, Roma, United, and Newcastle have already expressed interest in signing Guirassy during the next transfer window.
According to the source, Guirassy would be willing to leave Stuttgart in January. The striker has a release clause in his contract at €17.5 million (£15 million), which makes him accessible for a reasonable price.
Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.
Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.
This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
