The Stuttgart striker is expected to seek pastures new this summer but has so far failed to attract any formal offers despite his impressive form over the last couple of campaigns.
What is the latest news involving Kalajdzic?
Back in May, David Ornstein of The Athletic revealed that Kalajdzic was one of the most in-demand forwards on the market after entering the final year of his contract at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Ornstein stated that German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund were eager to snap up the 6 foot 7 target man, while Benfica, Southampton and Brighton were also monitoring his situation.
However, reliable Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg provided an update on Kalajdzic’s situation last month, claiming that Bayern and Dortmund are no longer in the running for his signature.
Plettenberg also disclosed that United had held talks with the Austria international’s representatives, though, describing the Red Devils as very interested in his services.
Whether Erik ten Hag’s charges make a formal approach for Kalajdzic could depend on the future of wantaway attacker Cristiano Ronaldo, who has made his desire to depart Old Trafford for a second time very clear.
What has Falk said about Kalajdzic?
With Benfica replacing Darwin Nunez with Petar Musa and the Bundesliga’s leading forces focussing their attentions elsewhere, Kalajdzic appears to be running out of options.
And Falk has informed GiveMeSport that he believes the towering forward, who has a €30 million (£25m) price tag, will be plying his trade in the Premier League this season.
He told GMS: “I think he and his management are looking at the English market now. So, I think he will be, at the end, on the island. Stuttgart would sell him if the price is okay.”
How could Man Utd line up with Kalajdzic?
Kalajdzic is a classic striker capable of holding the ball up and bringing others into play before getting onto the end of crosses and through balls and causing a “crazy” threat to the opponent’s goal due to his frame.
If United do end up bringing him to English shores, then he is likely to play through the middle either side of two pacey wingers tasked with supplying him with an abundance of chances.
At this moment in time, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho are perhaps the most obvious candidates to do just that, and the trio could cause opposition defenders a host of problems.
