Manchester United set to launch two bids for strikers

An insight into Manchester United’s transfer plans has been provided.

One of Manchester United’s main issues last season was their lack of goals.

The Red Devils scored 58 goals in 38 Premier League outings, which was the lowest in the top six by some distance.

The second-lowest attacking output from said teams was Newcastle United, who still managed to score 68 goals.

United’s lack of goals was to be expected given their poor options up top, though. Anthony Martial scored six league goals, whilst Wout Weghorst scored zero in 17.

Now, an insight into Man United’s plans to fix this has been provided.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are hopeful of tying up a deal to land the prodigiously talented Denmark international Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta, before heading to Germany in a bid to bring Frenchman Randal Kolo Muani to the Premier League.

Kolo Muani has been priced at around €65 million by Frankfurt, while Hojlund could be available for a fee of around €40m.

So, whilst Man United fans would no doubt love to see both players signed, the Red Devils’ limited budget this summer due to FFP means it may be hard to secure both.
