Manchester United want 23-goal striker with €20m release clause

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the Mexican striker, Santiago Gimenez.

Manchester United want 23-goal striker with €20m release clause

According to WDeportes, Manchester United have scouted the striker multiple times and they have been in touch with the player’s representatives

In terms of a fee, the striker has a release clause in his contract of around €20m, which is a sum Manchester United certainly have the resources to pay.

Gimenez is currently plying his trade in the Eredivisie with Feyenoord, whom he joined this past summer from CD Cruz Azul.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a sensational season so far, netting 23 and assisting four in 42 outings across all competitions.

And whilst United fans may be concerned about his ability to perform at a top level, Gimenez has scored five in seven Europa League games this season.

The low release clause means Manchester United can also afford to take a chance on the 21-year-old whilst potentially bringing in another no.9 to compete alongside him.

Manchester United’s current striking duo are Wout Weghorst and Anthony Martial. The latter is very injury-prone, whilst Weghorst has struggled for goals back in England and his loan deal is up in the summer anyway, when he will return to parent club and newly promoted, Burnley.
