From the transfer of ÖFB team player Marko Arnautovic In all likelihood, nothing will become of Manchester United. The English giants have refrained from signing after an offer rejected by Bologna FC. This was reported by several international media outlets, including the sports website The Athletic, on Tuesday. Accordingly, United would have received numerous complaints from their own fans about wanting to bring the 33-year-old Viennese back to the island.
Arnautovic had moved from West Ham to China in 2019. He found a new home in Bologna last year, but the “Rossoblu” don’t want to let their top scorer (14 league goals) go anyway. According to media reports from the weekend, a first ManUnited offer of 8.5 million euros was rejected. There will be no more. According to “Athletic”, United coach Erik ten Hag Arnautovic gladly committed as a cheap additional option in attack. The 102-fold ÖFB international is obviously not cheap.
Erik ten Hag had with him Arnautovic worked together in the early stages of his career at Twente Enschede. He was then assistant manager to Steve McClaren – the duo are now in reverse roles at United. Despite 43 competitive goals for Stoke City and West Ham in England, critical voices were also raised in the club’s environment Arnautovicnoisy. “I have an opinion on everything in the world – except that Manchester United Marko Arnautovic wants to sign,” said ex-United defender Gary Neville over the weekend as a TV pundit.
