AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham being scouted by Manchester United
The Giallorossi took on Serie A rivals AC Milan in the league. In stoppage time, the England international gave the Rome-based club the lead, but the Rosoneri managed to equalise a few minutes later.
Roma have set a massive price tag on the 25-year-old. The Italian outfit want £70 million—the price of Chelsea’s buy-back clause—to part ways with him. The Red Devils will also have to face competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur and French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
United are eyeing the addition of a striker to the squad in the upcoming transfer window. Spurs’ Harry Kane is being linked with the Red Devils. Napoli forward Victor Osimhen is also on the Manchester-based club’s radar.
However, Abraham is also being monitored by the Old Trafford side and is seen as an alternative. The English national has enjoyed a decent spell at Roma.
Last season, he was in fine form and won the Europa Conference League title under Jose Mourinho. However, the 25-year-old has petered off a bit in the current campaign.
United have Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst as the only two natural strikers in the squad at the moment. But the French national has been injury prone since Erik ten Hag’s arrival in the Old Trafford side’s dugout.
As a result, we have had to rely on the Burnley loanee over the last few months. However, while the Holland international has worked hard, with all due respect, he has not been up to the Red Devils’ standards.

Abraham made his way through the youth ranks at Chelsea and has played for them in the PL. Therefore, the English national has experience of the English top flight. But the 25-year-old’s performances in recent months have not been encouraging. Thus, it remains to be seen whether United will pursue his signature.
