Man United enter the race for €20m-rated Bundesliga striker

Posted by

Atletico Madrid and Man United have targeted RB Salzburg striker Noah Okafor to lead their line. Los Colchoneros’ main objective is to secure a deal for Switzerland international. Despite being well stocked on paper, La Liga giants’ current attacking contingent has not done justice to their reputation.

And the Argentine manager has been searching for that x-factor in their ranks. The likes of Morata and Cunha have not performed to the expected level, and some necessary shake-ups need to be done in the transfer market. Noah’s stupendous form has alerted several teams.

And the likes of Man United, Milan and Leeds United could be engaged in stiff competition to acquire his service. Eight goals in 14 games speak volumes of the talent he possesses. But RB Salzburg will have no intention to sell one of their most prized assets for the time being.

But Okafor will enter the last year of his deal next summer, and the Austrian club might find it difficult to keep a hold of him. It will be difficult to put off suitors, meaning a potential deal could be on the cards. The 22-year-old centre-forward is valued at nearly €20m.

The Red Devils will look at the Swiss striker as a long-term replacement for Ronaldo. The Portuguese centre-forward has lost prominence at Theatre of Dreams this campaign, and Man United might sell him soon. So pursuing Okafor to replace Cristiano Ronaldo might be a sound decision by the Red Devils.
