Marko Arnautovic’s brother all but confirms Man United bid

Negotiations with Bologna are underway in an effort to push a deal over the line

The brother of Bologna star Marko Arnautovic has, on Sunday, responded to speculation linking the attacker with a return to the Premier League with Manchester United.

The name of Austrian international Arnautovic has, of course, taken its place front and centre in the media headlines across the day to date.

This comes amid claims that Erik ten Hag’s United have identified the former Stoke City star as a surprise transfer target.

With Cristiano Ronaldo continuing to angle for an Old Trafford exit, and uncertainty surrounding the readiness of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to pick up the goalscoring slack, the Red Devils are understandably back in the market for reinforcements up top.

Arnautovic, fresh off a 14-goal campaign in Italy, is as a result being eyed as a cut-price option.

Speaking to the media late on Sunday evening, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of the 33-year-old’s future was put to none other than Arnautovic’s brother.

And Danijel Arnautovic went on to all but confirm that Manchester United have indeed tabled an offer for his signature.

The bid in question is understood to have come in around the €9/10 million mark.

With the powers that be at the club having opted to knock the proposal back, though, Arnautovic’s brother is ready to open discussions with Bologna, in an effort to push a deal over the line.
