Manchester United eyeing move for Luciano Acosta

DC United star Luciano Acosta is a target for Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Manchester United are set to sign DC United attacking midfielder Luciano Acosta.

The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

The Argentina international joined DC United from Boca Juniors for a fee in the region of 1.3 million euros in January 2017. His contract expires in December 2019.

The report claims that Manchester United manager has extensively scouted Luciano Acosta and is considering a move for the attacking midfielder.

His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.

Manchester United are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

According to Teamtalk, “Manchester United have sent scouts to watch DC United attacking midfielder Luciano Acosta, according to reports. The 24-year-old was one of Major League Soccer’s stand out performers last season as he racked up 10 goals and 15 assists in 33 appearances. He of course played alongside United legend Wayne Rooney in the nation’s capital, and was heavily linked with a January move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain. PSG were reportedly in the market for a replacement for Neymar, who suffered a broken foot, and they agreed a deal worth under €10million (£8.6m) with DC United. The French champions then apparently pulled out of the deal on deadline day just as Acosta was ready to travel over the Atlantic. However, a move to Europe could still be on for the 24-year-old, with The Athletic claiming that United are keeping tabs on the Argentine ahead of a potential summer swoop.”

If Manchester United are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Manchester United.

Manchester United fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this summer.
