Manchester United eye Ligue 1 star as Cristiano Ronaldo replacement

Manchester United look to be making plans for life post-Cristiano Ronaldo.

In one of the most shocking stories of the year, it was announced on Tuesday that Cristiano Ronaldo has had his Manchester United contract terminated.

This comes after Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan that saw him take aim at the club, the manager and many more.

Manchester United now have the task of replacing the 37-year-old hitman in the upcoming January transfer window as Anthony Martial is their only current striker.

One player being targeted, according to reports, is Jonathan David of Lille and Canada.

Jonathan David signed for Lille in 2020 and has since gone on to impress in France.

Despite only being 22, he has scored 41 and assisted eight for the French outfit.

David is having a particularly fruitful 2022/23 season, netting nine and assisting three in 15 outings to date.

The Canadian’s nine goals make him one of the top scorers in Europe’s top five leagues this season.

And according to Florian Plettenberg, Manchester United are considering making a move for Lille forward Jonathan David as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite David being a key figure at Lille, the French outfit would reportedly be willing to part with him in January for €50m.
