Man United Open Talks With Stuttgart Over Deal For Sasa Kalajdzic

Manchester United have entered into discussions with Stuttgart regarding signing Sasa Kalajdzic, based on a report in Germany..

As quoted by Metro, Sky Sport Germany is indicating that Manchester United are interested in a deal to sign the 25-year-old to supply Erik ten Hag with more offensive options ahead of the Dutchman’s first season as manager.Precisely the same article states that the Red Devils are taking a look at Kalajdzic amid increasing doubts about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the 20-time English champions beyond the summer.

However, according to the same report, Manchester United will probably face competition from Bayern Munich, who’re interested in the Stuttgart forward as a possible replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Sky Sport Germany point out that Bayern have not yet begun a move for the Stuttgart star, possibly opening the door for Manchester United to try to get the Austria international in the coming weeks..

The organisation adds that Manchester United are facing competition from a number of their domestic rivals in the race for Kalajdzic in the form of West Ham United, Southampton and Brighton.

The statement does not provide a likely price for the 25-year-old however the Stuttgart man will probably command a substantial price tag after a return of twenty two goals in 48 games over the last 2 months.

In 2019, Kalajdzic moved from the Austrian side Admira Wacker to Stuttgart before making his Bundesliga debut in May 2020 against Hamburger SV in the second division of the Bundesliga.

Since his debut for his nation in 2020, the Stuttgart striker has scored four times in fifteen appearances for the Austrian national team.
