Just over a month ago, Manchester United’s prized asset and top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic sustained serious ligament damage in his right knee during the club’s Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht at Old Trafford.
The injury has seen him be sidelined until at least the beginning of next season, if not longer, with medics at the club stating that the Swede could be out for over a year. There are some that believe the injury is bad enough to end the striker’s career.
Regardless of whether he plays again or not, Man United will have to begin planning for life without the man who has scored 28 goals this season.
As it has been over the past few summers, Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils have been linked with a plethora of high profile names across Europe. According to transfermarkt.com, this summer they’re being linked with moves for Torino’s Andrea Belotti and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
The former has had a terrific second season for the Italian side, scoring 27 times in all competitions. Morata, on the other hand, has managed seven less than that for Real Madrid this term but has had less playing time than Belotti.
Both are viable options, and both would make a hefty dent in United’s bank balance this summer.
But who would Man United fans rather have come the beginning of next season? Have your say in the poll below…
