Manchester United are reportedly keen to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham in order to solve their striking woes. The Red Devils have been struggling to find the back of the net this season, with their top scorer Marcus Rashford having only scored nine goals in all competitions.
The 21-year-old Abraham has been in impressive form for Chelsea this season, scoring 15 goals in all competitions. He has been a regular starter for the Blues, and has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.
According to reports, Manchester United are interested in signing Abraham in order to bolster their attacking options. The Red Devils have been linked with a number of strikers in recent weeks, but Abraham is seen as the ideal solution to their problems.
However, any potential move for Abraham could be scuppered by a £71 million clause in his contract. The clause states that if any club wants to sign the England international, they must pay Chelsea a fee of £71 million.
This could prove to be a major stumbling block for Manchester United, as they are unlikely to be willing to pay such a large fee for a player who is yet to prove himself at the highest level.
It remains to be seen whether Manchester United will be able to negotiate a deal for Abraham, or if they will have to look elsewhere for a striker. Either way, it looks like the Red Devils will have to dig deep into their pockets if they want to sign the 21-year-old.
