What the Austrian Would Bring

The 25-year-old talisman currently plays for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. In his two years playing in Germany, he has scored 22 goals from 48 appearances.

This is not the first time the forward has been linked to a Premier League move. Rumours have circulated about the striker joining Tottenham Hotspur in the past.

The six-foot-seven-inch striker is an unconventional forward and could become a target man for Erik ten Hag’s team. Available for a reported £17 million, Kalajdzic is an intriguing prospect for the Red Devils.

Manchester United Need Attacking Reinforcements

Manchester United have been looking for a new striker because rumours have been brewing about Cristiano Ronaldo wanting to depart. The club have been looking at Benjamin Sesko, but the move could be a pricey one.

The relationship between Ronaldo and the club is not improving, with the Portuguese star being unhappy with comments made by new manager Erik ten Hag. However, the Dutchman seems to want to keep Ronaldo around the squad.

United need to make a move this transfer window to bring in another striker, whether Ronaldo stays or leaves. Whilst the Stuttgart striker is unable to replace Ronaldo, Kalajdzic is available at a cheap price and has a solid goal-scoring record, which could be crucial for Ten Hag.
