Manchester United Need To Pay £60m To Land West Ham United Target: Is He Worth The Fuss?

Was diving around lush green grass not so long ago but my keyboard is all I have now. An avid observer of detail in sports with a passion to make myself heard. Can find me playing on a field if not in front of my screen.

Though the 2017/18 season ended with a bitter flavour, Manchester United fans will be excited with the business the club has made so far this summer. But it cannot be the end of the transfer activity at Old Trafford this summer if Jose Mourinho is to compete with Manchester City for the title next season. United continue to be linked with a number of stars, but one story that refuses to die is their interest in West Ham star Marko Arnautovic.

Having joined the Hammers just last summer, Arnautovic saw his former side Stoke City fail to avoid the drop while he himself was crucial in keeping West Ham happy and away from relegation.

With 11 goals and six assists in 28 league starts, the Austrian international was one of the best players for the club last season, making an immediate impact on a side crippled with injuries. He was used as a false-9 and on the left wing, to equal effect, as he consistently troubled some of the best defenders in the league.

He is now 29 and has loads of experience on his side and could be a more than decent acquisition for the Red Devils. He has learnt the right way to be effective in the English league and though has his own weaknesses, is never too far away from creating a chance or scoring one during a game. He is always alert to opportunities in front of goal, has a winning mentality and a never say die attitude, all of which are sure to impress Mourinho.

He can play in almost every position in the final third, can be an effective backup to the first team stars at the club. He can be an impact player in crunch games and help dominate games against weaker opponents, something he has been good at since moving to English with Stoke City in 2013.

However, The Hammers have now reportedly slapped a £60m price tag on his shoulder, keeping him on the market. So should Mourinho make a move?

Arnautovic is not a long-term investment but is certainly one that can have an immediate impact. Like Alexis Sanchez, he has a unique playing style that suits Mourinho’s system and his versatility is what makes him an attractive option for the United manager.

He is not an outright winger and will not solve United’s lack of players who can provide width in attack, so at his price tag, he may not be the wisest of investments at this moment for United. Do you think Arnautovic is the man to take United closer to the league title?
