Man Utd ‘closing in’ on first signing of INEOS era after sealing bargain agreement

Manchester United are closing in on a £34million deal for Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee after his agent, Kia Joorabchian, derailed AC Milan’s pursuit, according to reports. Zirkzee could become the first signing of the INEOS era amid complications with multiple centre-back targets at the start of the summer transfer window.

United are said to have identified a striker alongside a centre-back and central midfielder as their priority positions to address this summer.

The report claims Joorabchian was demanding around £12m from the San Siro giants but is ready to table significantly lowered terms to their rival suitors.

He is believed to be unlikely to lower his asking price to Milan, making United favourites to seal a deal for Zirkzee.

The Red Devils are reportedly ready to trigger Zirkzee’s £34m release clause, which could prove to be excellent value in the coming years.
