Mirko Vucinic

The Roma striker was a little confused why United needed him?

Potential United target Roma’s Mirko Vucinic is set to sign for Juventus according to the latest reports. The Montenegrin has been linked with a move to Old Trafford after his Vucinic’s agent claimed he’d been in talks with the club.

Any potential move to United now looks dead though as the Metro notes:

“Juventus have apparently agreed a £15.7 million fee with Roma, even though the Giallorossi had previously put a £17 million price tag on Vucinic.

“The player is thinking over a four-year contract offer and the transfer is likely to be completed over the weekend or early next week.”

The idea of Vucinic joining United did seem a tad strange to say the least as with six strikers at the club already, spending money on another one who has never played in the Premier League and at 27 has virtually no resale value.
