Ten Hag admires €100million forward’s “power and technique” as United make “concrete bid”

Posted by

Due to the absence of his leading goal scorer, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag will be concerned going into the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal matchup against Sevilla.

This season, Marcus Rashford has scored a personal-best 28 goals, accounting for more than 30% of all United’s goals in the European competition.

During the pre-game press conference, the manager confirmed the Manchester player would be out for a few matches. Without his goals, United would be in a terrible situation.

ETH must find a serious striker.
In order to add two more trophies to the collection, the Dutch manager will be forced to rely on the prone to injury Anthony Martial and the struggling loanee Wout Weghorst.

Another reason why the Reds should sign a top striker for the upcoming campaign is this unfortunate injury. The options available to the former Ajax coach are not particularly noteworthy.

The sale of the team and the subsequent transfer budget allotted to Ten Hag will have a significant impact on United’s ability to sign players like Goncalo Ramos, Harry Kane, and Victor Osimhen, to name a few.

Another name that keeps coming up is Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani. According to Sport Bild (via Sport Witness), the 20-time English league champions have made the “most concrete bid” for the versatile forward.

The report mentioned that the takeover process’ ambiguity is what is ‘holding up’ a potential summer deal for the Frenchman.

United made a bid for Kolo Muani.
This season, the France international has been in incredible form, scoring 19 goals and dishing out 14 assists in 38 games across all competitions. During France’s journey to the World Cup final, he also scored and assisted on goals.

The reigning champions of the Europa League are holding out for a transfer fee that is higher than €100 million because they are aware of the interest that their star player is attracting.

Ten Hag reportedly valued Muani’s “power and technique” as well as his defensive vigilance when United reportedly inquired about his services back in January.

With the player reportedly considering the Old Trafford team as his “favorite club” and being open to moving to Manchester, the move makes even more sense.
