Manchester United was one of the main protagonists of the past transfer market by hiring footballers like Jadon Sancho (the jewel of Borussia Dortmund) and Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) and bringing about the return of a living myth like Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the results were not as expected and the leadership made the decision to swerve in technical driving: fired Ole Gunnar Solskjær to bet on German Ralf Rangnick.
After 14 days (this afternoon they will receive Arsenal), the Red Devils have 18 units in the Premier League, which places them in tenth position, 15 behind the leader Chelsea and 5 from entering the positions that grant a ticket to the competitions international In contrast, they are the leaders of Group F of the Champions League, relegating Villarreal from Spain, Atalanta from Italy and Young Boys from Switzerland.
The Teutonic strategist, who was able to rise from the fourth category to the Bundesliga to RB Leipzig and then work in sports management (he also did it at RB Salzburg), according to the newspaper Bild, considers that they should reinforce the attack To take a leap in quality and on the list that brought him closer to the leaders, the names of two old acquaintances stand out: Timo Werner and Erling Haaland.
He knows the Norwegian perfectly, as he was one of the club’s managers when he exploded and captured everyone’s attention at Salzburg. His signing will mean a huge outlay of money, as he is closely followed by various clubs, such as PSG, Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid. In England, there is even talk of a possible offer that is around 118 million euros (between your file and commissions to your environment). The 21-year-old boasts staggering numbers this season in German soccer, scoring 14 goals and providing 8 assists in just 11 games.
The German striker, for his part, is not going through his best moment since he landed in Chelsea. With the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, his minutes were reduced, but the new United manager hopes to put him back in the foreground, as happened when they met in Leipzig. The German has 3 goals and 1 assist in 12 games with the Blues.
It is worth noting that the Italian press also added another name to this list of possible reinforcements: Julián Álvarez. The young Argentine was the great figure of River Plate to obtain the Professional League (top scorer of the Argentine tournament) and became a regular summoned by Lionel Scaloni in the National Team.
In case some of these negotiations come to fruition, Manchester United will have an overpopulation in attack, since in that area of the field it currently has Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial .
