Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic, according to the Mail. The 25-year-old is rumoured to be available for around £17million as the Red Devils begin to plan for a potential future without Cristiano Ronaldo.

The paper also suggests United have placed RB Salzburg forward and Newcastle target Benjamin Sesko on their list of options. The 19-year-old Slovenia international’s agent held talks with the club last week.
