Manchester United’s pursuit of a striker continues another day and now has added another name to the very long list of possible candidates to be signed in the remaining three weeks of this year’s summer transfer window. After everything that happened with Marko Arnautović, it looks like they have moved on from him for good.

In the last couple of days, it was reported that Stuttgart’s Saša Kalajdzić was being discussed by Manchester United internally as they saw him as a much younger version of Arnautović. At only 25 years of age, the also Austrian striker is expected to move away from Germany because he has some offers from Premier League clubs and would only cost around £20 million.

However, his new coach at the Austria national team, Ralf Rangnick, recommended him to stay one more year at Stuttgart in spite of the Red Devils’ interest in him. The German manager has just resigned from his role of sporting director at Manchester United after his time as interim manager of the club and knows exactly what he would expect at Old Trafford.

For this reason, the 19-times Premier League champions are looking for other strikers available in the market and might have come across a new option. TyC Sports reported that Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauro Icardi is now on the radar of United and Galatasaray. The Turkish giants are assembling a team of stars and would love to add Icardi to the signings of Dries Mertens and Lucas Torreira.

Is it really a possibility?

Mauro Icardi is on the exit door of PSG as he has lost his place in the French team, so he and the club are looking for intested clubs in him. TyC Sports also said that Galatasaray and Manchester United have made contact with his wife and agent Wanda Nara. The Argentinian is not living the best moment of his career, but if he gets any close to the level that he showed at Inter, United could be in for a treat.
