Erik Ten Hag is currently looking to bolster his attack not only to fill the void left by Ronaldo's departure but also to address his team's major weakness before the World Cup break; United's attack has struggled this season. Several high-profile strikers have been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Victor Osimhen of Napoli is one of them. Since joining Napoli in 2020, the Nigerian has been a standout in Serie A, scoring 38 goals and providing 12 assists in 77 games. According to Florian Pletternberg, United are interested in bringing him on board but do not want to overpay.
"As reported he‘s (Osimhen) one of the top targets. But been told that Manchester United doesn’t want to pay a crazy price around €100m. Bosses say: He is ready for the Premier League! What they appreciate about him: Speed, physicality. He’s a finisher!" tweets Pletternberg.
Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford has become the latest Red Devil to be questioned about Ronaldo's departure.
Keen not to make any headlines, he says, "It has been an unbelievable experience to play with him. He is one of my idols and someone I always looked up to. It is something I can keep with me forever, I wish him all the best, and we want to thank him for the things he’s done for Manchester United."
