Manchester United Agree Loan Deal For Vincent Aboubakar

Manchester United have allegedly agreed to loan forward Vincent Aboubakar to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.

The Red Devils are looking for a new center-forward after cancelling Cristiano Ronaldo's contract at the end of last month, with the 37-year-old joining Al-Nassr.

Aboubakar, who previously played for Porto and Besiktas, has spent the last 18 months at Al-Nassr, where he has scored 13 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions, including four in 12 games this season.

The 30-year-old recently led Cameroon to a historic 1-0 group-stage victory over Brazil while serving as the team's captain at the 2022 World Cup.

According to a recent source, Aboubakar's availability has 'alarmed' Man United, and Al-Nassr is willing to allow the seasoned striker to go out on loan.

Following the acquisition of Ronaldo, Al-Nassr have exceeded the maximum for non-Saudi Arabian players in their first-team squad, and they will be unable to register the Portuguese legend until one of their remaining seven foreign players leaves the club.

The Red Devils and Turkish giants Fenerbahce have agreed to sign Aboubakar on loan, according to Saudi Arabian news site OKAZ, with the striker preferring a move to the Premier League.

Aboubakar's possible loan move to Old Trafford would not only improve Erik ten Hag's attacking options, but would also allow Ronaldo to be formally registered by Al-Nassr.

Prior to the World Cup, Aboubakar spoke highly of his own ability and believes he can outperform Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah.
