Manchester United are set for a busy few weeks as the club push to try and sign a striker or two.
Erik ten Hag has been reshaping his Manchester United squad over the past few weeks, but there is one major gap, striker.
Anthony Martial is the only ‘number nine’ in the first team squad and he is not even fit, yet, and can’t be trusted to remain so.
With a few weeks left of the transfer window, Manchester United are exploring options, and it is not just Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund on the radar.
Randal Kolo Muani on Manchester United radar
According to Andy Mitten of The National, Manchester United are ‘actively negotiating’ with Eintracht Frankfurt over a deal for Muani.
He explains why the Red Devils are so high on the 24-year-old, believing the France international to be a complete forward.
The report explains: “Muani, a former winger, is rated by United for his quick feet, ability to beat players as well as score. He also has the height that would be useful when defending set pieces.”

Muani a good option at the right price
Similarly with Manchester United’s pursuit of Rasmus Hojlund, a deal for Muani comes down to Eintracht Frankfurt having a reasonable valuation of him.
He only signed for the German club last summer, and they are under no pressure to sell.
