Abraham to Man United or Chelsea ‘makes sense’ as clubs urged to sign striker

Ally McCoist believes it ‘makes sense’ for Tammy Abraham to join Manchester United or Chelsea this summer after Simon Jordan urged the club to target the former Blues striker.

Abraham, 24, joined Serie A outfit Roma last summer for £34million, linking up with legendary Premier League boss Jose Mourinho.

The Camberwell-born forward has been a revelation at the Stadio Olimpico and netted 17 goals in his first season at the club.

In doing so, he become the highest scorer by any Englishman in a single Serie A season.

It has led to questions over whether the England international could make the move back to the English top-flight in the near future.

Chelsea do have a £68million buy-back option on their former star, a clause which actives in 2023.

Rangers legend McCoist, however, believes a move to Old Trafford would be a good option for both parties.

“It makes sense for Manchester United,” McCoist told talkSPORT.

“The question and dilemma he will have to answer is whether he would want to move back to Chelsea or go to Manchester United.

“I tell you right now, if you’re Chelsea, I admire them for saying they probably made a mistake, and it was, because we were all scratching our heads at the time.

“It was not as though he wasn’t scoring goals or in any good form. I think he has been a bit unlucky at Chelsea.

“He has gone to another country, done exceptionally well, I am just so chuffed for him. He is a player I would like to see around the England squad again.

“I think he is a top class player, and he scores goals for fun.”

Ex-Crystal Palace owner Jordan has also been left baffled as to why United are not pushing to bring in Abraham, given Ronaldo has made it clear he wants to leave Old Trafford.

“Abraham is on a £68million release clause from Roma, and that does not kick in for Chelsea until after season two,” he told talkSPORT.

“That does not mean it does not kick in for someone else. It is over the £60million mark if they want to buy him back.

“Both Chelsea and Manchester United need centre forwards, Abraham has scored 17 or 18 goals for Roma last year, I am not sure why he is not in the conversation for Manchester United or Chelsea.

“Even sides that clearly have a need for a certain type of player, because I don’t think Raheem Sterling is going to be the answer for Chelsea from a focal point.

“With United, the conversation starts with a transfer policy. What is happening with Manchester City, is that they are buying the best players, and making them better with the coach they have got.

“That is United’s job.”
