4 Forwards Linked With Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen on signing a new striker, and these four names are reportedly on his wish list.

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see four strikers who are linked with United.

The Portuguese tactician is expected to splash the cash in the coming transfer window, and the Daily Mirror have reported that he will have £250 million (R4.3 billion) to spend.

As a consequence, he will look at the top bracket to improve his strike force, with Antoine Griezmann reportedly his main target.

The Atletico Madrid superstar apparently has an £89 million (R1.5 billion) buyout clause, but United seem to be prepared to make him one of the league's highest paid players.

Andrea Belotti is another target who would require a massive fee. The Torino striker is currently one of the leading goalscorers in Serie A, and his president has apparently put a massive £85 million (R1.47 billion) price tag on his head.

Romelu Lukaku recently stated that he will not extend his current contract at Everton, and has been heavily linked with a return to Chelsea. However, it has been claimed that Blues boss Antonio Conte might prefer to sign Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata if Diego Costa leaves.

This would open the pathway for United to lure Lukaku, who would apparently also cost about £80 million (R1.38 billion), to Old Trafford.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez has been listed as "outside bet" by the Daily Mirror, but it seems unlikely the Gunners would let their superstar, whose contract expires in 2018, leave to join a league rival.

Which of these strikers do you think Mourinho should sign? Have your say in the comments section below.

It looks like every player costs more than their true value these days and this is all becos of wat Man paid for Pogba, while he's a decent player he's not yet at the extraordinary level, consequently every team use Pogba's fee as a benchmark for negotiations or close to it.
