According to Romelu Lukaku, players will be lining up to play for United next season. “A lot of players, a lot of good players, will come in the summer for sure,” the Sunday Express quotes him as saying. “We have to improve year in, year out. I look forward to the squad being improved because next year we have to try and win as many trophies as we can.”
Going by the Belgian’s words, here are three players the club can do with for next season.
The 23-year old Serbian midfielder currently plays for Lazio. The central midfielder is an action-packed player and has a tenacious engine to keep playing 90 minutes day in day out. His added quality of having a keen eye for goal is however what sets him apart for someone his age. With years of peak football ahead of him; it is no secret why the big clubs are chasing his signature. Since his move to Lazio in the summer of 2015, Savic has gone on to make over a 100 appearances for the club scoring over 20 goals and creating another 20. He will no doubt add many more as he continues to develop and Jose Mourinho could do with a player like him.
Icardi moved to Inter Milan back in the summer of 2013 from fellow Serie A side Sampdoria and has since gone on to become a star player at San Siro. He has a contract with the Italian giants that run till 2021 and any party who might be interested in the Inter ace will have to fork out a fortune for the Argentine.
Icardi has gone on to make over 180 appearances for the club and has scored around 100 goals in the process, adding another 25 assists as well in the process. He is a mainstay at the club and being given the captain’s armband, it is clear Inter expect him to stay at the club for the long run.
However, with Zlatan leaving for LA Galaxy, Icardi could be a much better replacement for him at United.
The talented defender had been in excellent form this season and has helped his team to the top of the table in Serie A. However, back in October the 26-year-old suffered a serious ACL injury that has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
The full-back has a mammoth £53 million release clause and it Manchester United could be ready to activate that clause to solve their left-back crisis. He is an attacking minded defender who can run laps all day and could be a vital asset to the Old Trafford team.
