Man Utd set for transfer battle with rivals for Real Sociedad star

Manchester United are set for a transfer battle with rivals City for Real Sociedad star, Alexander Isak.

Both clubs want to sign a new long-term striker to lead the line for the coming years.

And according to Fichajes, they would be prepared to stump up the £76million to trigger his release clause.

Edinson Cavani’s contract at United expires next summer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refuses to play Cristiano Ronaldo every game and is being patient with Mason Greenwood.

Across town, Sergio Aguero left City for Barcelona and they failed in their pursuit of Harry Kane over the summer.

And Isak, fit again after a hamstring problem, appears the ideal candidate for both clubs.

The 22-year-old came through at AIK before joining Borussia Dortmund for two years.

He signed for Real Sociedad in 2019 and has an impressive 34 goals in 96 appearances for the LaLiga side.

Isak only signed a new contract until 2026 this summer – in part to buy out the buy-back clause from Dortmund.

Speaking of his new contract, the former Arsenal target said: “I’m very happy to continue at la Real.

“It is a great club, I feel loved here and hope to enjoy things with this team for many more years.”

On the international stage, he has nine in 30 Sweden caps with four of those coming in World Cup qualifying this year.

The forward may not have scored at Euro 2020 but certainly impressed with his performances and chipped in with two assists.
