Marko Grujic has been linked with a move to Manchester United
Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic.
According to the Serbian newspaper Telegraaf, Manchester United is’seriously inquiring’ about signing the Porto midfielder.
Marko Grujic, 26, is a Porto defensive midfielder who has played 105 times for the club, including 18 in the Champions League.
According to the tabloid, United have made touch with Grujic’s intermediaries about a possible summer transfer.
Marko Grujic was Jürgen Klopp’s first signing at Liverpool.
Marko Grujic has previously played in the Premier League. He was Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp’s first signing.
Grujic’s time at Anfield, though, was not the pleasant period he had hoped for when arriving as a youngster in 2016. He only made 16 appearances for Liverpool before being released.
Grujic really departed Liverpool in 2020, after spending the previous two seasons on loan at Hertha Berlin. He had previously been loaned out to Cardiff City.
Liverpool sold him for a tiny profit to Porto for £10 million, where he has established himself as a regular, appearing 26 times this season.
Could Marko Grujic truly join Manchester United?
This question will be resolved in part by Grujic’s devotion to Liverpool. With so few appearances for the club, he may be open-minded enough to explore a potential career transfer to Manchester United.
Grujic is a defensive midfielder who might be Casemiro’s backup. This is a position that United must fill.
The 19-time capped international is signed with Porto until 2026. According to the Telegraaf, AC Milan is also interested.
Porto manager Sergio Conceicao lauded him in December, according to MaisFutebol: “He is a physically powerful midfielder who has a major impact on the game in that area.” He is technically skilled, with the ability to make both short and long passes.
“He’s a midfielder we believe in, and that’s why he’s here.” I know him and admire his qualities. His progress has been quite excellent.”
At this point, Grujic appears to be more of a name to remember than a clear smmer target. He would undoubtedly be an intriguing alternative if Erik ten Hag chose him, as he would enter with a genuine point to prove.
