Strong: Marko Arnautovic is pictured in the Austrian national team kit against Denmark in June 2022.

Marko Arnautovic (33) joined Manchester United. Viaplay commentator Kasper Wikestad doesn’t know if the transition will be successful, but describes it as “very special”.


Manchester United is said to have offered eight million euros (about 80 million Norwegian kroner) to the Austrian, according to the Manchester Evening News – which adds:

A potential transformation that could be ridiculous.

Manchester United lost 1-2 to Brighton in the opening match of the Premier League on Sunday.

The player’s agent – and his brother – Danijel Arnautovi confirm the opposite courier That there is a show from a “famous club”.

– I am in contact with Bologna if this is possible.

Arnautovi is perhaps better known than Stoke and West Ham, but he spent two years in the Chinese port of Shanghai before returning to Europe last year and signing a contract with Bologna.

United boss Eric Ten Hag and assistant Steve McClaren have known Arnautovic since their days at Twente, where McLaren was manager and ten assistants to Hague in the years from 2008 to 2010.

– United see Arnautovi as a viable short-term option to support early strikers and an ideal type for a dressing room still struggling with confidence after last season, writes the Manchester Evening News.

– You must trust ten hag

Norway United editor Dag Langerud responds to the rumors about the Austrian as follows:

It’s not too surprising that in a summer where United are estimated to have £120m to trade for and need several players, they have to find other kinds of solutions which may not be at the top of the lists, says Langerud.

Tough start: Manchester United manager Eric Ten Hag (top right) got off to a rough start when the team lost 1-2 to Brighton on Sunday. And sitting in front of him, among others, is Cristiano Ronaldo, who has expressed his desire to leave the club.

Erik ten Hag built Ajax by bringing in players that didn’t cost much, he knows Arnautovic from the Twente era. In this sense, it is not directly surprising. I didn’t see him in a single match in Bologna, but I remember him as an Austrian player, and I don’t know if I thought he was a monster of pressure.

– But?

Admittedly, it looked really bad on Sunday, but I think Tin Hag is the right employee and, as United’s backers, we only have one chance now: we have to trust Tin Hag and hope he makes his decisions. It provides width in situations where we are a bit skinny.

– He won’t laugh

Do Manchester Evening News think that any possible transfer will lead to “sarcasm”?

The starting point is that Manchester City and Liverpool are light years ahead of us so far. They have teams that are doing well and each has brought in a great striker in Erling Braut Haaland and Darwin Núñez. Then we consider bringing in a 33-year-old that no one else would have thought of. The comparison does not look very good, but remember that these are clubs at a completely different stage of their development. Eric Ten Hag builds a team that he believes has the right qualities. If he thinks Arnautovic is the right guy, I won’t make fun of him. Dag Langerød says he believes there is something that can strengthen us, which is who he is and who can do it.

Viaplay commentator Kasper Wikestad is unsure if there is any truth to the rumors, but states:

– It’s a strange name to pull off the hat. United now have a 37-year-old striker who is not doing the job defensively. This is a lower level 33-year-old striker who is also not known to do this part of the job well enough. This is very special, says Wickestad.

– offside

– Would you say something about the difference between Manchester United, for example, Liverpool and Manchester City now?

– No, the problem arose when the striker, who scored 24 goals last season and who thought he had decided on another season, came relatively late with the message that he would not be there. Cristiano Ronaldo.

– That’s why United were placed offside. Those who would have been substitutes have already extended their contracts or gone to other clubs. So the Reds retreated. In this sense, it is the camp surrounding Ronaldo that has put Manchester United in a difficult position. You can’t buy a striker of this caliber for a team when he starts too late.

Wickstad adds:

The situation arose not because United are not attractive or big enough, but because they were embarrassingly out of the starting blocks, because the striker they envisioned playing suddenly wasn’t that much interested.

Marko Arnautovic caused strong reactions for the way he celebrated the national team’s goal against North Macedonia at the European Commission last year.

– Not racist

He allegedly made racist remarks, and showed a finger pointing that most of us interpret as “okay” – but, according to December 2019 New York Times article It can also be interpreted as “white power”.

“I am not a racist and I will never be racist,” Arnautovic said at a press conference a few days later, reproduced by courier.

Arnautović was replaced after an hour of playing in Bucharest. He had some strong duels with North Macedonia Izjan Alewski. After Arnautovic scored his 3-1 goal, he let his mind run wild. According to Currier, bad words were said in Alewski’s direction.

Emotional words were exchanged from both sides. It doesn’t belong, we have to settle it. I just want to regret all this, said Arnautovic himself.
