Manchester United have been urged to make a move for Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino this summer.

This is according to former Manchester United player Kleberson, who believes Firmino’s style of play will suit Manchester United.

“Roberto Firmino’s style would suit Manchester United, especially the way he plays for Liverpool,” said the former Brazil international midfielder. “For the Brazil national team, he plays higher up, but for Liverpool he’s a bit deeper. He’s learned so many things from Jurgen Klopp and he is so smart on the pitch. His movement to create space, or sometimes to occupy space, allows his team-mates to..

“If Manchester United wanted to make a change, he’s a good player that can help, especially with Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho on the wings. Firmino can help those players create space when they’re on the attack.

“That’s the type of player Manchester United should be looking at. A player with Firmino’s quality can help release the team. He’s a great player and he’d be a good fit, and a good signing for Manchester United.”
