Fernando Llorente Tottenham

Manchester United have offered a contract to former Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente, according to reports in Italy.

The Red Devils sold Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan this summer without bringing in a replacement with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer placing his trust in players already at the club.

However, United are still lacking a striker in the same mould as Lukaku with rumours before the transfer deadline that they could sign Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic.

And now Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) claims that United are very interested in ex-Spurs target man Llorente.

The Spaniard is still a free agent after being released by Mauricio Pochettino at the end of last term.

And the report adds that United have ‘contacted’ the 34-year-old and offered him a two-year deal at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have a limited pool of free agents to choose from with Wilfried Bony even mentioned as a possible option by Gazzetta dello Sport.
