Iranian national team forward Taremi is being linked with a move to Manchester United.
Local media outlets, including Portuguese outlet Avola, reported on Wednesday (June 13) that the Porto striker’s transfer to Manchester United has gained momentum. The agent who was involved in Porto’s signing of Taremi posted a photo of him at Old Trafford on social media. This has sparked speculation of a move to the Red Devils,” the report said. It added: ‘Taremi’s contract with Porto expires in June 2024. He has been linked with a move to a number of clubs, including Manchester United, AC Milan, Everton, Marseille and Al Hilal.
United have been heavily linked with a move for the striker. ‘Atalanta have rejected United’s €35 million ($50.4 billion) bid for Hojlund,’ Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport reported on Feb. 2.
The UK’s Daily Mail reported on January 1 that ‘United do not have enough money to sign a new striker. After signing Mount, United have only £65 million ($108.9 billion) left in the transfer kitty. It’s impossible for United to sign a world-class striker with £65 million in the bank,’ and ‘Frankfurt striker Moani, who United have considered signing, costs £85 million. Atalanta striker Hojlund would also cost £85m. Benfica striker Ramos is valued at £70 million ($117.2 billion),” and “United should sell Martial for a transfer fee of more than £30 million ($50.2 billion) to make room for a striker.
The Red Devils have been linked with a number of strikers, with Iranian international Tahremi consistently mentioned as a possible target. Portuguese outlet Jornal Denoticias reported on January 1 that “Man Utd are targeting Tahremi. He is a striker who has the characteristics that United manager Louis van Gaal likes. Porto want more than 20 million euros (about 28.8 billion won) for the player. He would be one of the least expensive strikers to join United. Tarémi was the top scorer in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season with 22 goals. He was the Portuguese Primeira Liga’s top scorer in the 2019-20 season with Rio Ave, and after his move to Porto, he is once again the league’s top scorer.
