Jose Mourinho is clearly setting up a formidable team for the next football season.

According to recent reports from English outlet Metro, Manchester United have submitted an offer of €70 million for Torino forward Andrea Belotti. The Italian international, who had scored 32 goals last season is one of the most sought after strikers in Europe with clubs like Real Madrid and Arsenal also rumoured to be interested in the striker.

The 23-year-old international had a breakthrough season with Torino, leading them to 9th in the Serie A. Strong on the ball, and brilliant in the air and with a great work ethic he is an archetypical Jose Mourinho player.

Urbano Cairo, the Torino president, however, clarified earlier, “I'm not thinking about selling Belotti. Belotti is my player, we only renewed his contract recently. Our objective is to keep him”.

“After that, there is a release clause that would make me obliged to sell him, providing someone came in with 100m euros from abroad”, he said.
