Manchester United has been able to shut out criticism from early on in the season and churn out some big results. The Red Devils sit in the top 4 and won the important Manchester Derby recently. However, the win against arch-rivals, Manchester City has been followed by two disappointing performances in the league.
The club suffered a huge blow against Crystal Palace where they conceded a late goal and lost Casemiro for the fixture against Arsenal. The 1-1 draw also meant that they failed to cut the lead at the top of the table. Furthermore, Manchester United fell to defeat against the runaway leader, Arsenal at the Emirates.
The Manager believes that the team has struggled to perform in these situations due to a lack of options. The options up front are very minimal and the manager has to often resort to Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Elanga from the bench. The club has recently been linked to a number of forwards including Randal Kolo Muani.
Manchester United will try to get another forward in this window
The Red Devils have already signed Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley for the remaining season. However, the squad might require another forward up front to strengthen the squad adequately. Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt has been identified as an ideal candidate.
The French international has impressed at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and contributed well. The forward also showed that he is versatile and can even play as a winger. This versatility is also attractive to top clubs like Manchester United as the player can fill different positions.
It is reported that the Red Devils have maintained a close watch over the forward in Germany. However, he is not the only option for the club. Manchester United have also kept close tabs on multiple other forwards across Europe. It will be interesting to see if the club is able to get a deal through!!
