Breaking News: I told him to stay but he wants to join Man Utd – Fred confirms ‘World-class’ striker keen on Manchester United move after 41 goals in 50 games

Fred affirms that the “world-class” striker is eager to join Manchester United in January after scoring 41 goals in 50 games. He says, “I told him to stay.”
Galatasaray striker Mauro Icardi, who was previously plucked by Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain, is rumored to be interested in signing a loan deal with Manchester United.

It’s possible that for the third January in team history, Manchester United will need to sign a short-term contract with an accomplished center-forward.

Even though the signings of Wout Weghorst and Odion Ighalo tell you everything you need to know about United’s squad-building and financial mismanagement under the Glazers, the potential arrival of Mauro Icardi would surely be met with far more excitement.

One of the greatest finishers of the modern era, Icardi, has already netted 17 goals in 25 games for Galatasaray this season. The Argentina international scored one goal in the 3-2 Champions League triumph at Old Trafford in October against Erik ten Hag’s squad.

At thirty, Icardi has plenty of fuel left in his tank. There will be questions about whether Icardi has the all-around skill to actually succeed in a Ten Hag team because he is somewhat of an outdated throwback to the era when true goal poachers patrolled the penalty area. Still, few players in the current Man United roster can match the ruthlessness he offers.

Icardi paid roughly £8.5 million to join Galatasaray in 2022, and in 50 games since then, he has scored 41 goals.

The former Inter Milan captain would be open to moving to Old Trafford, according to Football Transfers. A year ago, he was also apparently eager to join United.

Ten Hag may finally get his wish if he can move past Anthony Martial.

“In my perspective, Icardi is among the best attackers I have ever encountered. Giorgio Chiellini, a Juventus legend, states in his autobiography that “he is almost impossible to mark inside the area,” according to PSG Talk.

“Mauro’s high scoring against Juventus hurt me.” Despite his shortcomings in specific aspects of the team’s performance, he is an elite center forward. He is lethal when in the air.

Manchester United may attempt to sign a number of seasoned center forwards for less money in January, including “a world-class striker” Icardi. There’s also the connection between Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy and former Chelsea attacker Timo Werner.

Argentina great Hernan Crespo tells Gazzetta dello Sport that “Icardi is a complete center-forward.” “He can score goals with his head, left foot, or right foot.” He walks as if he were the box’s owner. Darting runs, dummies, and sudden changes in pace. It’s all meant to assist in defining an objective.

“He has incredible qualities and a powerful physique to match.”
