Marko Arnautovic, an Australian forward, started his career playing for local clubs in the Vienna region before signing with the Dutch team Twente in 2006.
Later, Marko Arnautovic moved to Inter Milan on loan, but he was only able to make three appearances for the Italian powerhouse due to injury.
The 2016 and 2018 UEFA European Championships were made possible by the 100 appearances the 2018 Australian Player of the Year made for his national side.
The 33-year-old forward is wanted by Manchester United’s boss, who wants to bring him to Old Trafford. The attacker is known to Erin ten Hag because he played for FC Twente from 2006 to 2009.
In 2021, Arnautovic agreed to a two-year contract and moved to Bologna. Bologna, a Series A team, lost 5-4 as a result of the player’s goal in the 56th minute of play.
Marko Arnautovic’s brother Danijel stated to football journalist Andreas Heidenreich that a major club has made an offer.
When asked about the offer Manchester United made for his brother, Danijel responded, “It’s true that there’s a bid from a well-known team. The potential of the agreement is being discussed with Bologna, he went further.
Bologna, though, is said to have declined United’s offer because they want him to keep his hands off their striker.
After the manager expressed interest in signing the Australian forward, Manchester United made an initial offer of 8–9 million pounds for the 33-year-old forward.
Bologna’s assault depends heavily on Marko Arnautovic, therefore the team is hesitant to dismiss him so soon.
According to the rumors, Manchester United is putting pressure on the Series A team to move the transaction through and get Arnautovic.
While working his way up to assistant manager for FC Twente’s Eredivisie team, United manager witnessed the player at his peak form there.
The manager of United has already stated in the open that he needs a fresh attacker during this window.
For the premier league team, acquiring Arnautovic does not appear to be an easy task. If Manchester United wants a chance to sign the Australian forward, they will need to make a better offer.
It is unclear at this time whether the Red Devils will make a new offer to Bologna or shift their focus to alternative possibilities.
