Man Utd chiefs now readying bid for “natural goalscorer” dubbed “King of the penalty area”

Posted by

According to rumours, Erik Ten Hag has identified a striker who Manchester United has set their sights on in order to expand their offensive alternatives.

What recent events have occurred at Manchester United?

Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, and Andre Onana’s arrivals have left Manchester United with unfinished business for the summer, according to FootballTransfers.

After playing for the team during their preseason endeavours, veteran central defender Jonny Evans is reportedly close to signing a one-year deal with Manchester United. The Northern Ireland international’s impending arrival could make Harry Maguire’s future at Old Trafford more uncertain, according to Telegraph Sport.

Earlier this summer, Maguire appeared to be closing in on a £30 million transfer to West Ham United. However, the deal fell through, and he will remain with the Premier League powerhouses for the time being despite losing his captaincy at Manchester United.

Fabrizio Romano, a transfer analyst, said on X that Manchester United is in the running to recruit one of Europe’s most promising young players. “Understand that outstanding talent Dino Klapija is being negotiated by both Manchester United and RB Leipzig; there is also a possibility to conclude the transaction now for January. Since the Croatian team Kustosija’s 2007-born striker will shortly depart, a decision on the player’s side is anticipated soon.

With an injury complaint, Manchester United’s new midfield acquisition Mount has been sidelined for four to six weeks. According to Telegraph Sport, McTominay’s return to the engine room could be facilitated by Mount’s absence.

Who else would Manchester United consider signing?

the signing of Hojlund has missed time throughout the early stages of this season due to an injury to his back, but according to The Evening Standard, he might make his debut this weekend against Nottingham Forest.

A move for Santos attacker Marcos Leonardo, who is also attracting interest from Jose Mourinho’s Roma, is reportedly being planned by Manchester United in light of the injury to the Denmark international, according to Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport Witness.

According to the source, Manchester United is prepared to make the Brazilian powerhouses an offer to recruit the young player who Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig has dubbed “the king of the penalty area” for a total of €20 million + €5 million in ‘bonuses’.

Leonardo has been referred to as a “natural goalscorer” by Kulig, and it is understandable why considering that, according to Transfermarkt, in 149 appearances for Santos across all competitions, he has scored 49 goals and provided 11 assists.

The 20-year-old, who is the efficient leader of the Santos line, has successfully completed 36 shot-creating actions this season in Brazil’s top division, according to FBRef.

The manager of Manchester United, Ten Hag, will be aware of his team’s offensive weaknesses, and bringing a promising young player like Leonardo to Old Trafford will undoubtedly thrill the Red Devils’ fan base.
