In their pursuit of “the new Thierry Henry,” Manchester United appears prepared to spend a fortune.

The Red Devils have had an incredible season in which they still have a chance to win three trophies after already winning the League Cup. Erik ten Hag, however, has struggled up front after Cristiano Ronaldo left midseason and was replaced by Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United brought in Wout Weghorst on loan, but they are hoping to add a top-tier forward in the summer, and they now seem to have made a “concrete bid” for one.

As United looks to complete their frontline this summer, reports in Germany claim that a “concrete bid” has been made for Eintracht Frankfurt superstar Randal Kolo Muani.

In response to interest from Tottenham Hotspur as well, the Europa League champions have set a price tag on his head of £88 million and are reportedly willing to sell for the right offer.

Kolo Muani, who has gained notoriety this season thanks to outstanding performances in the Bundesliga, is even being compared to his legendary countryman Thierry Henry for the way he plays. The center-forward, who was previously a wide player, is only now beginning to mature in his early 20s.

“Kolo Muani has a languid dribbling style and immense turn of speed that were hallmarks of Henry’s game – especially at a young age,” the official website of the Bundesliga states.

wrote seven days ago. He plays with a cheekiness and strength on the ball that will leave Bundesliga defenders in his wake and cutting frustrated faces.

Harry Kane’s future may determine whether or not the Frenchman joins the Premier League. The 24-year-old striker could be used as a backup by Manchester United, who are also interested in the England captain. Should Tottenham lose their No. 10, they might look into a transfer for him.

Transfermarkt values Kolo Muani at €65 million.
