Manchester United: Romano states that Jonathan David ‘could be available’ for club to sign in January


Manchester United will have to pay LOSC Lille around ‘£45-50m’ for Canadian striker Jonathan David.

That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who spoke about potential forwards the Red Devils could sign in January on The United Stand.

After Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial interview with Piers Morgan, it appears that Man United could be on the hunt for a new striker.

Romano claims that David is a player that could be available for them to sign in January.

Here’s what Romano had to say about David’s asking price: “He could be available in January, I’m told. Of course, the price could be a big one, let’s see what happens with Canada at the World Cup, but I’m told it could be around £45-50m.”

TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…

We think that if the price is right, David could be a decent pick-up. He’s got nine goals so far this season in Ligue 1, while he netted 15 times last season and 13 the season before that.

The World Cup will be a big opportunity to show what he’s capable of. Should he impress, that may entice Man United to go and sign him.

Indeed, the forward is part of Canada’s World Cup squad, with their first game against Belgium next Wednesday.

However, the issue with this is should he tear it up in Qatar, Lille may then hike up the asking price. This could then put Erik ten Hag off signing him.

But we feel if a deal can be done, the Red Devils should definitely consider signing him. He’s 22 years old and already looks like a goal machine.
