Man Utd Opinion: Why should Man United revive interest in Kasper Dolberg?

Manchester United’s summer overhaul is in full flow, as they have already made two significant signings namely Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

On the receiving end, Romelu Lukaka’s transfer saga has become intense, as the Belgian is linked with an exit from Old Trafford following a lacklustre 2018/19 campaign. As of now, Juventus seem like the potential suitors for the 25-year-old. (h/t The Guardian)

Given that, the Red Devils can prepare for a future without Lukaku should they revive their interest in Ajax striker Kasper Dolberg, who was being chased by the Old Trafford outfit alongside Napoli and Arsenal. (h/t Daily Express).

How can Dolberg help United become an aggressive attacking unit?

The Dutch striker has been serving the Amsterdam outfit for the past three seasons, playing more than 100 games.

Despite suffering from injuries pretty regularly, it never appeared as an obstacle for the Danish striker as goals continued flourishing from his foot. He has bagged 45 goals and 16 assists thus far in Ajax’s shirt.

In the 2018/19 season, Dolberg managed to garner 12 goals and 6 assists, despite playing second fiddle to Dusan Tadic. The 21-year-old would have hit his stride if it weren’t for his injuries.

Dolberg might appear as lukewarm as anyone on the field due to his calm demeanour but he lets his actions speak more than anything.

The Danish prospect boasts of attributes similar to Luis Suarez. His great positional awareness, ability to drift between the lines and link-up play are all commendable. Above all, he has an eye for an incisive finish.

Dolberg uses his build and pace to a great extent and that’s why he’s one of best strikers of his generation.

Elsewhere at United,  Solskjaer could deploy Dolberg as a second striker alongside Marcus Rashford in a two-man forward line. Furthermore, his addition would also raise the stakes for Rashford.

At the same time, a move to Old Trafford would also get Dolberg a greater amount of nurturing than he had at the Dutch capital.

Final Verdict

The Red Devils have no better way than betting on young talent like Dolberg to secure the club’s long-term future. With his presence, United would be a force to reckon with.
