Manchester United have been linked to Italian and Torino sensation Andrea Belotti for months. Belotti is 23 years old and just came off a season where he scored 26 goals. He also has a release clause in his contract, running until 2021, that says he can go to a club outside Italy for €100 million. Torino’s President, Urbano Cairo, told Gazetta Dello Sport today that Manchester United will have to meet that release clause if they want to sign Belotti. Manchester United has also been extensively linked to Alvaro Morata, with Marcus Rashford even saying today he’d welcome Morata to the team, so United are going to have to get the cash ready if they want their first choice to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
