Manchester United showing interest in Torino winger Raoul Bellanova suggests their intention to address the right-flank position, which has been a concern for the club. This is according to Italian outlet Tuttosport via Football365 (h/t Manchester Evening News).

The 23-year-old’s versatility, having played across various positions including right-midfield, right-back, left-wing, and left-back, makes him an appealing option for Erik ten Hag’s side.

Despite his modest goal-scoring record, Bellanova has shown his ability to contribute with assists, highlighting his playmaking qualities. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with Luciano Spalletti considering him for a potential senior call-up to the Italian national team.

If Manchester United indeed pursue Bellanova, his adaptability could provide valuable depth and options for the team, addressing the need for reinforcements on the right side of the pitch.

Bellanova’s impressive resume speaks volumes about his talent and potential. Having been part of prestigious clubs like Inter Milan, Atalanta, Bordeaux, and AC Milan’s academy, he has gained valuable experience and honed his skills at some of the top institutions in Italian football.

His time at Torino has further showcased his abilities, demonstrating his pace, acceleration, and endurance on the field. Bellanova’s tireless work rate and versatility make him a valuable asset for any team, as he can contribute both defensively and offensively from various positions on the pitch.

With such a rich background and promising attributes, it’s no surprise that Manchester United are considering him as a potential solution to their right-flank issues. If he continues to develop and perform at a high level, Bellanova could prove to be a significant addition to any team he joins.

Hardworking forwards have a domino effect on the rest of the team. The press seems more intense, the tight spaces seem tighter, and players are suddenly running for one another. Manchester United desperately needs someone who has such a work rate from the wings.

The supporters at Old Trafford have witnessed how Rasmus Højlund’s work rate helps the team positively, it’s time to bring something similar to either side of him.

His current market value is estimated at €7 million by transfermarkt, but Manchester United are expected to shell in around €25 million to acquire Raoul Bellanova’s services as Premier League rivals Aston Villa also registers their interest in the 23-year-old.
