The 21 year old Palermo striker has been in a great form and is surely one of most exciting young talent in world of football. The striker has scored 13 goals and has 10 assists to his name. The Palermo director in winter had openly told press that Manchester United has contacted them for Paulo and constantly has been hinting for move out. Though many top teams including Arsenal, Juventus are after his signatures but if Manchester United shows interest they can get him due to their financial strength but may have to pay whooping 35m.

 

2. Danny ings

Danny ings has been a star player for Burnley and has caught eyes of many top teams. The inked up Burnley goal-getter is wanted by Liverpool and has paid a courtesy call to Real Sociedad, but Manchester United have emerged as odds-on favourites to sign the 22-year-old, and would cost them 20m.

3. Robert Lewandowski

The 25 year old Polish striker has joined Bayern only this season but there are rumors that he hasn’t still settled and Pep Guardiola is not particularly happy and wants another striker, if this happens to be true then it will be a fairy tale love story as both are perfect for each other. The possibility is still low and United supporters shouldn’t be too confident about it, though if Utd plans to pursue its interest it will cost them around 40m.

4. Edison Cavani

The 28 year old striker has scored 17 goals this season despite playing out wide and could be a real deal. However, PSG has said that the player is happy at the French Club but given the financial strictness with PSG, he might just agree for a transfer. The transfer will cost Man Utd around 50m.
