Manchester United signing Joshua Zirkzee ‘a matter of time’

It is reportedly a ‘matter of time’ before United seal the deal to sign Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna, according to a recent report from GIVEMESPORT.

Speaking with GIVEMESPORT, journalist Fabrizio Romano said: “[Man Utd are] just waiting to decide whether they will trigger the 40 million euros release clause to be paid in one solution, or if they can negotiate with Bologna for a different kind of structure of the deal, to have better payment terms. But it's just a matter of time, and then Joshua Zirkzee is expected to become the first signing of the INEOS era.”

“It was really nice to get on the other night and get some minutes, I've been itching [for it]. Of course, I think I am [fit and ready to play a full 90 minutes], that is down to Gareth's decision. I feel fit and ready to go. Of course, it's tough. They were really there for me, not just Gareth and Steve [Holland, the assistant coach] but the medical staff as well. I have a lot to thank them for.”
