French magazine Le10 Sport report in their edition this week that Manchester United are a surprise option for Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette. The young French attacker has had a superb season in Ligue and been attracting attention from many clubs around Europe. Whilst it was thought he'd stay at Lyon to play Champions League football in the club's new stadium, things look to be changing with the player himself sounding increasingly open towards the idea of a move during the summer.
Le10 say that right now Manchester United are one of three serious options for Lacazette. The other two are French club PSG and an option to stay where he is at Lyon for a further year. Arsenal have been linked a lot previously but there's no mention of them going anywhere with that interest just yet.
There's said to be an offer on the table from PSG for €30m but Le10 suggest he could also go to Manchester United for that amount with the Premier League club willing to put their money forward. Lacazette is something of a new link for Manchester United and it would throw further doubt on the future of Radamel Falcao and perhaps even Robin van Persie. Manchester United don't lack firepower on paper but on the pitch they've struggled recently to both create chances and convert them. __________________________________________________________________________________
I don't know how much this magazine is reliable, if at all, but it's our first link with him I think. The new Thierry Henry!
My God, he is exactly that kind of player. Pace in abundance, plays everywhere up front, his hold-up play is almost as good as RvP's and is strong as a bull, scores for fun! What's there not to be liked by LvG?
he seems like more of a winger to me. for 30 million euro's he is a bargain i think. he is the best player in france right now, even compared to the likes of cavani and lavezzi, he probably has been playing better than them
