Man United’s hierarchy, after unveiling their new manager on Monday, have been drawing up the framework to upgrade the current squad. There are plans to bring in a couple of midfielders, a centre-half, and a versatile forward.
During his spell as interim manager at Old Trafford, Ralf Rangnick highlighted the need of a younger forward on several instances. The German asked the United board to sign a striker in January, but his plea was rejected.
United are now prepared to act upon his recommendation by making a move for RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku.
The Bundesliga forward has scored 35 goals and provided 20 assists in all competitions. He capped off his impressive season in front of goal by scoring a late equaliser in the DFB-Pokal final.
Nkunku’s qualities are admired by Rangnick, who has recommended his transfer to the Premier League outfit.
As per Sky Sport reporter Florian Plettenberg, the Red Devils could make an ‘official offer’ for Nkunku next week, and there’s already ‘a good contact’ between the club and the player’s representatives.
But Leipzig are firm on their stance to keep hold of their superstar, who played a big role in securing Champions League football for next season for Domenico Tedesco’s side.
