Manchester United target Tammy Abraham has not closed the door to a move away from AS Roma

AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham, who is a Manchester United target, has not closed the door to his exit from the Italian club in the future.

Apart from United, Newcastle United are also interested in the former Chelsea striker. The latter have a buy-back clause of €80m that is activated this summer.

After the season Chelsea have had and seeing what they need, getting a striker must be on top of their transfer wishlist.

But, as United boss Erik ten Hag said a few weeks ago, the Red Devils need a number nine in the summer to take that next step in the following season. Here’s the club target Abraham on his future (h/t TMW, via Manchester Evening News):

“This could be the best year of my life so far and I want to make that a reality. It would be great to win something again with Roma and who knows what the future will hold.”

That quote has the essence of leaving everyone hanging in terms of what Abraham wants to convey about his future. Maybe we will know more about it after the end of this season.

After moving from Chelsea to Roma in 2021, the 25-year-old had an excellent first season in Italy. He has struggled this time around though. If we look at the numbers, he has only got nine goals in 49 appearances in all competitions. The seven assists are the saving grace to an extent (Transfermarkt).

With United close to securing Champions League football next season, can they afford to have a striker like Abraham who still does not feel like a finished article as a player? The answer is no.

He has experience in England, had a decent debut season in Italy but is clearly struggling to become a lethal goal-scorer during this campaign. We need world-class strikers who don’t need their skills honed anymore.

Ten Hag and his staff must look at a number nine who are better than the Englishman, both in terms of quality and overall experience. There are links with Harry Kane. The club should break the bank and get the England captain this summer.
