Manchester United set to move for magical Mata replacement

By Mark Peters IN Euro 2016,General,Transfers - 20:10 Jun 16th 2016

Jose Mourinho will expect nothing less than a title-challenge in his first season in charge of Manchester United, so expect some serious transfer business to be done this summer.

One player that the Red Devils are thought to be looking at is Lorenzo Insigne, with the Napoli playmaker being lined up as a potential replacement for Juan Mata.

LORENZO INSIGNE

Currently on duty with his country at Euro 2016, the Italian international has become a key figure for his club in recent seasons.

Last term, for example, the talented 25-year-old appeared in 37 of his team’s 38 Serie A matches, 34 from the start, weighing in with 12 goals and ten assists:

Back in the Premier League, meanwhile, Mata was only half as effective, contributing six goals and five assists to his side’s cause.

Brilliant on the ball and full of energy, Insigne possesses the talent needed to shine on any stage and he was badly missed by Napoli when a knee injury ruled him out of much of the 2014/15 season:

  1. […] Kickoff says United are following the developments of the Italy international – present with the squad at Euro 2016 – who can play all three positions in attack and could be a good reinforcement of playmaker Juan Mata. The Spanish star could be away from Old Trafford, as it’s widely believed that new Man United boss Jose Mourinho isn’t happy having him in the squad. […]
