Manchester United are considering another attempt at signing Tottenham Hotspur target Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion, according to reports from the Express.
The 22-year-old Englishman was linked with a move away from Hawthorns throughout the transfer window and Tottenham Hotspur was tipped favourites again and again for the young striker’s signature.
West Bromwich Albion also signed his replacement in Venezuelan international Salomon Rondon from Zenit St. Petersburg and Rickie Lambert from Liverpool and is awaiting for the most lucrative deal for the English youth international.
However, Manchester United looks to have been alerted after West Brom rejected a £22million offer from Tottenham in their efforts to sign the striker.
Manchester United have only two established strikers in their cub with Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez with both struggling for goals. Although Rooney scored a hat-trick last night against Club Brugge in the UEFA champions League playoff to secure his team a place in the Elite competition in Europe.
Whereas Spurs have three strikers in their squad with Harry Kane, Emmanuel Adebayor and new signing Clinton N’Jie from Lyon.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is not willing to meet the player’s £25million valuation and has now turned their attentions to Bayer Leverkusen star Son Heung-min, who is rated at about £22million.
Levy is still being linked with another increased offer for Berahino, but could end their chase for the England Under-21 ace if they manage to sign the Korea international.
This would then give the Red Devils another chance to sign the forward, especially with manager Louis van Gaal keen on adding more attacking options to his squad.
It will be an interesting tug of war between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur for the signing of the English youth international Saido Berahino from Tony Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion.
Berahino has played 83 matches so far for the Baggies and scored 29 goals and has been capped 47 times for English youth set ups and scored 24 goals.
