Manchester United are raking the barrel of strikers for short-term deals and face competition from Arsenal for unwanted Chelsea stars…
A good striker is a prized commodity now, with barrels being scraped off to find a half-decent one. Obvious interest in Wout Weghorstrespectfully suggests that they have scrutinized the market fairly thoroughly.
Wegorth, who is on loan from Burnley at Besiktas, won Friday’s win over Kasimpasa before bidding farewell to his fans. He thinks he’s going to United, but his coach wasn’t so happy. Told. “Officially there was nothing of the kind.
United could sign former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham if Besiktas steps in.
They face competition from Arsenal, according to La Repubblicafor the 25-year-old whose “future in Rome remains uncertain”.
After scoring 27 goals in his debut season for Jose Mourinho’s side, he has scored just four goals in 21 appearances this season. Nevertheless, he is unlikely to be a cheap option given that Chelsea have the option to buy him back for £70m at the end of the season.
If either Arsenal or United are really interested, they’ll have to wait until the summer anyway.
Eric for Eric
United can’t wait, if so Possibly chasing England’s top striker Rather than the 4th or 5th choice. Regardless, they need a short-term loan before Harry Kane’s possible move and another bruised Premier League striker flop they’re interested in is Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Stint at Stoke.
After scoring five goals in 31 appearances for the Potters, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain, where he scored 29 goals in 74 appearances for Bayern Munich.
Sky Deutschland journalist Florian Plettenberg took to Twitter to criticize the Premier League teams. Interest in 33-year-old is “concrete”.
Despite an ‘intensive’ courtship from United, the move is unlikely as Bayern’s priority is to extend Choupo-Moting’s contract, even though they are associated with a handful of strikers. Not really.
Dansou and Due
Newcastle are already “working aggressively” to build a team that is ready for next season’s Champions League.
Might jump the gun a bit, Jeunesse Futuu (via sports witness) claims the Magpies have set their sights on RC Lens stars Kevin Danso and Rennes’ Desire Due.
Danso has established himself as one of the best centre-backs in Ligue 1 and is believed to be worth between €35m and €40m at the end of the season.
Due, on the other hand, despite being only 17, has a maturity and vision of the game that far exceeds his age.
Rennes are well aware of the attacking midfielder’s ability and potential and need a very large offer to snatch him away, and Newcastle are likely to face tough competition.
