Manchester United are springing back into action in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are reportedly looking at two strikers as doubts linger over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, while also angling for a conclusion to the ongoing transfer saga with Frenkie de Jong.

It is understood Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic and Benjamin Sesko of Red Bull Salzburg have been identified as possible replacements for Ronaldo.

Kalajdzic is thought to be valued at £17million, while Sesko would likely cost somewhere closer to £55million.

Kalajdzic joined Stuttgart from Austrian side Admira Wacker in 2019 and has proceeded to score 24 goals in 57 games.

Dubbed the ‘new Erling Haaland‘, 19-year-old Slovenia international Sesko is a natural centre-forward and, given he’s 6ft 4in, it’s easy to see why he’s been compared to the new Man City star.

Reports from The Times suggest Man United have held talks with the youngster’s representatives.

Meanwhile, Man United’s mission to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong looks to be finally reaching a conclusion.


Sesko bagged five goals in 24 league appearances last season

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils will make one last attempt to sign the 25-year-old, who they’ve been trying to sign all summer after striking a £67million deal with the La Liga side.

However, De Jong is reluctant to leave the Nou Camp with £17million in deferred wages owed to him by Barca.

It is also unclear whether the 25-year-old midfielder is keen on leaving for Man United, who will not compete in the Champions League next season.

However, Barca need to balance the books after a big summer of spending and new Old Trafford boss Erik ten Hag remains keen to get his former Ajax star.
