Man United fans excited with Alexandre Lacazette’s potential summer transfer

Manchester United fans have expressed their excitement at the prospect of seeing Alexandre Lacazette move to Old Trafford over the summer.

Recent reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho now leads the race to secure the Frenchman’s signature after Atletico Madrid – his proposed next destination – lost an appeal over a transfer ban which means they cannot register new signings until January.

The 26-year-old, who noted he was open to a Premier League move back in January, has been a perennial threat for Lyon over the last four seasons, claiming 133 in total and a career best 37 goals during the 2016/17 campaign.

Supporters were quick to register their enthusiasm over the prospect of seeing Lacazette complete a move to Man United over the summer.

Mourinho reportedly ‘cooled’ his interest in Atletico’s Antoine Griezmann specifically because of a need to sign an all-out No.9, as opposed to somebody who has spent most of the last nine months as either a No.10 or second striker behind Fernando Torres.

And Lacazette, with this in mind, fits the bill perfectly: this is a man with over 100 goals for Lyon; the last time he scored fewer than 20 goals in one season occurred when Sir Alex Ferguson was United boss. The 54-year-old will know the importance of signing a powerful, direct and indeed prolific striker he can count on for next season, and not many players fit the bill better than Lacazette.
