Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic could emerge as an option for new Manchester United manager David Moyes, according to Tuttosport.
The 29-year-old Montenegro international has reportedly been the subject of admiring glances from retiring Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson in the past.
Vucinic may not have a supersonic pace of Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo or the skill of Barcelona's Lionel Messi, but the five-time Montenegrin Player of the year award winner has all-round abilities which most top forwards in the world lack. Vucinic has played an exceptional but silent role in Juve’s unbeaten run in this season till now.
Juventus bought Vucinic from rivals AS Roma in the summer for a moderate fee of €15m, he was a part of Juve’s reconstruction plan. Coming from a decent spell with the Giallorossi, Vucinic soon fitted perfectly into Antionio Conte’s formation of 4-3-3. Being a natural forward he was comfortable to play on the left wing or just behind the main striker, Alessandro Matri.
Vucinic has a very unique style of play, the Montenegrin hit-man ventures forward dribbling, turning around past defenders.
It’s not just the eye for goal which makes him special, as he is also an intelligent playmaker. His way of reading the game is totally unquestionable, no surprises that with a veteran like Andrea Pirlo in the heart and Vucinic up front the Bianconeri have been ultra-creative in their attack this season.
With speculation surrounding Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez, Manchester United might require some stocking up in the attacking department. With Danny Welbeck still developing, United may not want to rely solely on Robin van Persie for goals.
Vucinic would be a good buy if the rumours about certain players leaving Old Trafford turn out to be true. As of now, United do have a strong attack which may not need first-team additions.
