Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is desperate for a recent striker in January after terminating Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract. A bunch of top European talent has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, including Joao Felix, Alvaro Morata, Rafael Leao and Memphis Depay.
Nonetheless, the Glazers are attempting to sell the club so Ten Hag may not get the backing he requires within the winter window. The Dutchman can have to seek out a brief solution while the takeover takes place.
United only have Anthony Martial as a recognised senior striker but Marcus Rashford could also play through the center if need be. Ten Hag recently said: “Two things. Impulse can come out of our own club, see Garnacho, see Elanga, see Pellistri, who made a great impression on the World Cup and likewise in training. That’s first.
“Second, yes, we’re aware we lost a striker, so I believe we’ve got to get a striker in, but it surely needs to be the proper one.
“The precise one is a player that brings quality to the team, not only adding to the squad because that only gives you problems. And, you already know the standards is high here at Manchester United.”
