Manchester United are reportedly more interested in signing attacking players this summer and reports have emerged that they have agreed a deal to sign Brazilian attacker Roberto Firmino.
Reports in Germany suggest the Red Devils have agreed a deal with the Bundesliga club worth €30 million for the 23-year-old, while Tuttomercatoweb now suggest terms have been agreed with the player.
Indeed, the 23-year-old has been understated impressive for a while now. He’s been one of the standout players in the Bundesliga over the past couple of campaigns, showcasing a swagger, an ingenuity and an engrossing incision at the spearhead of Hoffenheim’s midfield. His recent winner for Brazil against Chile at the Emirates Stadium merely thrust his talents upon a wider audience.
For United, he’d be a fine purchase and the kind of player Louis van Gaal would look to build a team around. While the Red Devils have a lot of attacking-midfield talents, Firmino is a player who would give United a fluidity that has been pretty scarce throughout the entirety of this current campaign.
