Report: Man United ‘close in on Andrea Belotti’?

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

The Red Devils’ need for a new attacker at the end of season has increased after the club’s talismanic forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a serious knee injury during Europa League quarter-final second leg against Anderlecht.

Ibrahimovic’s career is likely to come to an end this summer, while United’s captain Wayne Rooney could seek new destination after a disappointing 2016-17 campaign.

At least one new striker is expected to arrive at Old Trafford this summer, and according to The Mirror, José Mourinho’s side are ‘closing’ in on a deal for the 23-year-old forward, who has an £84m release clause in Torino’s contract.

The Italy international, who joined Torino from Palermo in 2015 – has scored 27 times in 32 appearances for the Serie A outfit this season, making him the leading goalscorer in the division.
