Revealed: Kalajdzic wants Man Utd transfer
United boss Erik ten Hag has been looking to improve his attacking line up all summer, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo wanting to leave the club.
The Red Devils would only have Anthony Martial as a senior out-and-out centre forward option should Ronaldo leave, leaving them in need of reinforcements.
And, despite former United manager Ralf Rangnick's comments, Kalajdzic is extremely keen on a move to Manchester, reports Sky Sports.
It's believed that he would cost around £17 million from Stuttgart, a fee the Red Devils consider to be reasonable for the 25-year-old.
Kalajdzic to Man Utd?
Kalajdzic has been at Stuttgart since 2019, having signed from Austrian side Admira Wacker, helping the club earn promotion to the Bundesliga in 2020.
Since, he has been a star for them since playing in the German top flight, attracting interest from the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Indeed, he scored 17 goals in 36 appearances in his first season in the Bundesliga, and then followed that up with six in 16 matches, helping Stuttgart to retain their top-flight status.
He is also a full Austrian international since 2020, making 15 appearances for them in that time and scoring four goals in the process.
but perhaps the key reason for the interest in the forward is that, at 6’ 4” tall, he is remarkably good in the air
