Manchester United enquire about €20m-rated Bundesliga striker


Manchester United are said to be interested in Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic.

Sasa Kalajdzic joined Stuttgart in 2019, after departing his home country of Austria.

The German outfit are believed to have paid less than 3 million pounds to land the hitman, which has since proven quite the bargain.

In 33 Bundesliga outings last season, the 24-year-old would score 16 goals, as well as providing six assists.

The hitman has since been impacted by a shoulder injury that kept him out for a good chunk of the current campaign.

However, Kalajdzic has returned to action over the last few months and is getting back to his best, netting six and assisting two in 15 league outings for his current side.

Kalajdzic, whose current contract runs until 2023, also became a regular at international level after making his debut for Austria in October of 2020.

Now, as per reports coming out of Germany, Manchester United have enquired about Kalajdzic, who is said to be available for around €20m:

Should Manchester United sign Kalajdzic?

Manchester United have a serious lack of decent striking options heading into the 2022/23 campaign.

Cristiano Ronaldo is 37 and unable to play every single game whilst Edinson Cavani will be leaving for free in June.

As a result it would make sense for United to be in the market for one or two striking options this year.

And as Erling Haaland is now on his way to Manchester City, United may be well served signing Kalajdzic for what, in today’s market, is a fairly small fee.
