Last week, Manchester United fans received some rather disappointing news. After endless months of speculation, it was revealed that the club had cooled their interest in Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann to focus on a more conventional, out-and-out centre-forward. Not so coincidentally, the French assassin later pledged his allegiance to the Spanish giants.
Which all begged the inevitable question of who United should target this summer to fill that centre-forward void. We put that exact question to our Red Devils readers earlier this week, giving them a straight up choice between two prime targets – Everton’s £100million-rated front-man Romelu Lukaku and Torino’s rising star Andrea Belotti.
Both are supremely talented strikers who’ve scored for fun this season but according to our poll, twice the number of United fans would prefer Jose Mourinho to sign the 23-year-old Italian international this summer following a campaign which saw him net 26 times in Serie A.
