Zirkzee to Man Utd in January?

Manchester United are eyeing a January deal for Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee, according to German outlet Sport1.

The young marksman has hit a rich vein of form this term and he has netted seven goals in 17 Serie A appearances this term.

His form has caught the eye of the Red Devils and it is claimed that they are prepared to make a winter approach to land him.

Zirkzee currently has a release clause worth €40m in his contract, but he could return to Bayern for just €22m due to a buy-back clause.

On the other hand, the German champions will be owed 50 per cent of the sell-on fee and Bologna are unlikely to lower their demands.

It remains to be seen whether United can afford to sign him. Sir Jim Ratcliffe is currently on the verge of securing a minority stake.

However, he may not be allowed to take control of the sporting operations until February and a deal depends on the Glazers spending.
