Manchester United Could Move In For This Forward If He Becomes Available: Right Fit For Ole?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

According to a recent report by The Sun, Manchester United are waiting to find out whether Arkadiusz Milik will extend his stay with Napoli before making a potential move for him during this ongoing January transfer window. The same source has also revealed that the Polish striker is currently locked in negotiations with the Naples-based club to extend his contract that runs out at the end of the next campaign. If the two parties fail to come to an agreement, then the Red Devils are ready to make a £60m move to secure Milik’s services before the end of this month (via The Sun).

Milik’s Fruitful Season At Naples Despite Being Plagued By Injuries

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a productive campaign despite missing out on a lot of the matches due to injury. He has put in some eye-catching displays for the Serie A giants so far. Milik has played in 12 games for Napoli this term, scoring ten goals across all competitions.

The Polish striker has averaged 3.8 shots, 1.2 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in the Italian top-flight (stats via whoscored). On his day, he can be an unstoppable force in the offensive end of the field, which is why Man United should try their best to lure him to the Theatre of Dreams this winter.

The Tychy-born frontman is also vastly experienced at the international level, having earned 49 senior caps for the Polish national side while registering 14 goals for his nation in the process.

What Will The Polish Forward Add To Solskjaer’s Side?

Milik is a decent dribbler with the ball and can take up some dangerous positions in the final third. He is a lethal finisher inside the opposition penalty area. He is also capable of scoring a worldie from long range as his shots often pack a lot of power and precision. His shooting prowess makes him a potent threat from dead-ball situations as well. However, the Polish international’s link-up play still has a lot of room for improvement.

Will Milik Be A Good Fit For The Mancunian Giants?

Recruiting a prolific centre-forward like Milik is exactly what the doctor ordered at Old Trafford. He will not only add a lot of goals to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad but will also free up space for the likes Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood to operate on the flanks if required.

Therefore, it’s safe to assume that Milik will be a great fit for the Red Devils as he is a natural goal-scorer who has the potential to thrive in the Premier League due to his aerial prowess and finishing ability in the final third.
