As the Manchester United quest for a new striker continues, new information has started to come out from Germany, where one of the many transfer targets of United currently plays. After walking away from the Marko Arnautović negotiations, the club has now targeted his fellow countryman, Saša Kalajdzić.

According to Dharmesh Seth, from ‘Sky Sports News’, has just reported that a source close to Stuttgart has claimed that Kalajdzić really wants to make the move to Manchester United. The Austria striker is currently on the final year of his contract and has been liked with a move away from Stuttgart this summer.

Some other Premier League clubs like Chelsea and Newcastle United have also approached his club in order to make a move but haven’t reached an agreement. Because he is entering the last year of his contract, the operation should be cheap as he doesn’t want to extend it and the club won’t risk losing him for free next summer.

Yesterday, it was reported that the former Red Devils’ coach, Ralf Rangnick recommended the footballer to stay at his club one more year. The now Austria national team manager told him that if he wanted to play regularly, he should stay away from Old Trafford. However, it looks like the sole interest from Manchester United has caused that the 25-year-old striker to be desperate to change clubs.

Would he fit in Erik ten Hag’s system?

If the Dutch manager’s first choice striker was Arnautović is because he wants a tall and physical player who can protect the ball and be a reliable header of the ball. We saw on United’s first game of the season, that the players were crossing the ball a lot, but there wasn’t anyone who could head the ball in the net. That’s why Saša could be a great addition to the squad.
