Man United have five striker transfer options as John Murtough begins 2022 transfer hunt

Published

on

Manchester United’s search for a new striker is reportedly underway as transfer chief John Murtough looks to follow up what was one of the most memorable windows in the club’s history.

The Red Devils were linked with several forwards this summer and ended up bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford in a blockbuster move.

United have a number of potential options to bring in next summer as their search for a new striker gets underway.

According to ESPN, Red Devils’ chiefs are looking into signing a new goalscorer next summer to follow the move for Ronaldo, who agreed a two-year deal.

Edinson Cavani’s deal is due to expire at the end of next season so United will likely be in need of more firepower in attack next term.

So from Erling Haaland to Harry Kane, Daily Express Sport have revealed five options for Murtough to explore.

Robert Lewandowski

Despite recently turning 33, Lewandowski is still as potent as ever, topping the Bundesliga goalscoring charts last season.

The Poland striker is seeking a new challenge away from Bayern Munich though, according to Sky Sports, suggesting he could be on the move next summer with his contract due to expire a year later.

United have previously been linked with a move for Lewandowski, and he is yet to try his hand in the Premier League.

Erling Haaland

It’s well documented that Borussia Dortmund may have no alternative but to let star striker Haaland leave for just £68m next summer due to a clause in his contract.

The Norwegian hitman would be an absolute steal at that price, having scored 63 goals in the 64 games he’s played for Dortmund.

There will be a fierce competition for Haaland if that is the case though, with Real Madrid and Manchester City also said to be keeping tabs on him.

Harry Kane

Tottenham didn’t let Kane get his move this summer, but it remains to be seen if he will be allowed to leave in a little under 12 months time.

The England captain wasn’t available at any price during the recent window, so his likely fee is anyone’s guess.

But if Spurs endure another trophy-less season nobody can blame Kane for having another go at leaving, and a move to United would be an attractive prospect if they can afford him.

Mauro Icardi

With so much attacking firepower at PSG, it’s a wonder how Icardi will get a look in once Lionel Messi and Neymar are fit and raring to go.

The Argentine’s two Ligue 1 goals suggest he can force opportunities in the French capital, but rumours were rife of an exit over the summer.

And it will be interesting to see how things plan out for Icardi in one of the best frontlines football has ever seen.

Seen as potentially Harry Kane’s successor in years to come for England, Calvert-Lewin has been one of the most consistent strikers in the Premier League over the last couple of years.

The 24-year-old has begun the season in red hot form, and surely a possible move to one of the big boys will be on the cards soon.

With three years left to run on his contract this time next year, Calvert-Lewin certainly won’t come cheap, but he is a quality option that can’t be overlooked.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.
