Edinson Cavani signing a new contract must have been a massive boost to Manchester United. The Red Devils do not possess much depth up front at the moment. On the other hand, on current form, the Uruguayan is one of the best strikers in the world.

Throughout the course of the season, he was linked with a summer exit from Old Trafford. Ultimately, Cavani decided to remain at the club, which the fans must have been delighted with.

But at 34 years of age, he is not a long-term solution for the Red Devils up top. As a result, they are still expected to try and sign a striker in the upcoming summer transfer window. And as reported by the Express, Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic is on the radar of Manchester United. The Serie A side are believed to be looking for a £51 million transfer fee for the Serbian international.

According to stats from Transfermarkt, the 21-year-old has scored 21 goals and provided 2 assists in 40 appearances across all competitions for Fiorentina, establishing himself as one of the most exciting strikers right now.

Vlahovic could be a brilliant signing for Manchester United

The Red Devils have been linked with the likes of Harry Kane and Erling Haaland in recent months as well but they are expected to come with a transfer fee of over £100 million. As a result, signing someone like Vlahovic could make much more sense in the current financial climate.

Of course, Jadon Sancho is believed to be the club’s top target this summer. And if that move happens, it will be interesting to see whether the Red Devils make an attempt to sign Vlahovic as well.

Winning the race for Vlahovic won’t be easy anyway though, with the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester City also believed to be interested in the rising star.
