English striker Tammy Abraham joined AS Roma from Chelsea on a permanent deal last summer and has since become a darling in Rome.

The former Chelsea number 9 is now a talismanic figure for Jose Mourinho’s side as they maintain their charge for a spot in next season’s champions league.

Tammy Abraham’s form is something of sheer delight for the Roma faithfuls but they are faced with the harsh reality of a short reign for their new Roman emperor, with Chelsea reportedly having a buy-back clause in the striker’s deal which would be active as from the summer of 2023.

It is on this premise that AS Roma according to numerous reports are willing to cash in Abraham this summer by selling him for more profit before his buy-back clause becomes active in 2023 and the Italian clubs are said to have slapped a £100 million price tag on the Cobham academy graduate.

Several top clubs are said to be interested and according to Daily Mail, premier league big guns Manchester United and Manchester City are exploring the possibility of making a move to meet AS Roma’s price tag.

According to reports, Man Utd are already looking for a potential Cristiano Ronaldo replacement as the veteran Portuguese forward could leave this summer if the Red devils do not secure champions league football for next season. Meanwhile, Man City’s one-year old search for an out and out centre-forward seems to have informed the decision to keep an eye on Tammy Abraham.

Whichever way it goes, the coming transfer window is already showing great promise.
