Manchester United target and CSKA Moscow star Aleksandr Golovin’s father has given Jose Mourinho as well as fans some hope in regards of making a transfer happen.
The Portuguese manager is said to have been impressed with the Russian’s World Cup campaign so far and so the club have been linked with making a bid for him.
United are aiming to improve their midfield and defence this summer and although Golovin is more of an attacking midfielder, he can be dropped deeper if needed.
Mourinho has already added depth to his side’s midfield with the investment of Shakhtar Donetsk’s Fred but it’s said he’s looking for more of a rotational player than a starting XI star.
With Marouane Fellaini rumoured to be set to leave the Red Devils once his contract ends, there will be a need to replace him and the Moscow star fits the bill.
According to Manchester Evening News, Aleksandr’s father said to Komsomolskaya Pravda: “I know that Sasha has already started learning English.”
The problem with the potential transfer is that it’s unlikely Golovin will be happy with a bit part role and it’ll be difficult for anyone to break into a midfield made up of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Fred.
Manchester United though do need a back-up to the Frenchman who’s equally creative as they struggled whenever he was absent from the first-team.
