The latest Manchester United team connected to Palace Forward

Manchester United is the latest club linked to Crystal Palace forward Alexander Sorloth.

The attacker was in sparkling form during the Trabzonspor loan spell and the Red Devils reportedly sent scouts to watch the Norwegian in action over the weekend.

Fotomac revealed that United was one of several European elites to see the 24-year-old perform in his team’s 5-2 win against Rizespor in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday.

Should a sale materialize, Palace would likely lose an exceptional payday with Ahmet Agaoglu, president of Trabzonspor, who confirms the deal with his Sorloth’s parent club.

“True, the clubs are interested and watching it, but we lent it for two seasons from the Crystal Palace,” said Agaoglu.

“I have until May 31 next year to use our purchase option.”

This purchase option is believed to be just £ 6m, £ 3m less than Palace paid in Midtjylland in 2018.

Trabzonspor would then be able to sell the striker at a higher price if he wishes to cash in on the man who failed to score a league goal at Selhurst Park.

The attacker responded to rumors that the best in Europe were interested in his services, but rejected them.

“I have seen the rumors, there are so many, I have read them and I continue to receive information on the teams that are interested,” said Turkish football.

“However, I focus only on Trabzonspor, there is a great team spirit here and we want to win the double.

“This is an excellent team, we play at the highest levels and the team has really united.

“It would be irresponsible and wrong to disrespect talking about transfers right now.

“I won’t do it, I won’t get involved, I’m focused on the title race.”
