Manchester United leading Arsenal in the race for Serie A target

Jose Mourinho is now favourites to sign Torino striker, Andrea Belotti. According to reports the 23 year is close to joining Manchester United after news broke that the player and the Portuguese manager are about to be represented by the same agent.

Super-agent Jorge Mendes, is about to take over the affairs of the Italian, which is an indication that Mourinho will have the upper hand in signing the player.

Belotti has an £85 million release clause written into his current contract, a price which Torino’s president boasts that no club would be willing/able to meet.

Arsenal have been linked with the young hit man, but the money being bandied about makes it unlikely that Arsene Wenger will sign the player.

Manchester United paid a world record fee for Paul Pogba last season, and have been linked with other expensive players this season.

United have cash to burn, and are expected to test Torino’s commitment to keeping their star man.
