Erik ten Hag has been remodeling his Manchester United squad in recent weeks, but one significant deficit remains, striker.
Anthony Martial is the only ‘number nine’ on the first team roster, and he isn’t even healthy yet and can’t be relied on to stay that way.
With only a few weeks left in the transfer market, Manchester United is looking into a number of options, including Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund.
Manchester United is interested in Randal Kolo Muani.
According to Andy Mitten of The National, Manchester United are ‘actively negotiating’ a deal for Muani with Eintracht Frankfurt.
He explains why the Red Devils consider the 24-year-old France international to be a complete forward.
“Muani, a former winger, is rated by United for his quick feet, ability to beat players as well as score,” the report says. He’s also tall, which is essential for defending set pieces.”
Muani is a good alternative at a reasonable price.
Similarly to Manchester United’s pursuit of Rasmus Hojlund, a transfer for Muani hinges on Eintracht Frankfurt valuing him fairly.
He only joined the German club last summer, and they are under no obligation to sell him.
The Mail reported in March that Frankfurt could seek approximately £100 million, before speculating that they might be willing to accept for as little as £50-60 million.
