A shocking successor to Cristiano Ronaldo? Manchester United interested in a center forward
Manchester United are getting ready to make a big change in the attack line. Media Foot informed that the club has already selected a potential successor to Cristiano Ronaldo.
There are indications that this season is the last season that “CR7” will spend at Old Trafford. On July 1 next year, the contract linking the Portuguese with the “Red Devils” will expire.
So far, there is no information about a possible extension of the contract. Ronaldo is likely to leave the club to look for a team to play for in the first squad again.
Meanwhile, Manchester is already looking for a new striker. Media Foot said United officials are seriously interested in getting Erik Choupo-Moting.
The Cameroonian has been impressing with his shooting disposition in recent weeks. After recovering from his injury, the 33-year-old returned to the Bayern Munich squad and scored seven goals in the six previous games.
Choupo-Moting can be an interesting opportunity in the transfer market. The current contract of the striker with Bayern is valid only until the end of this season, so it is possible that he will hit the market for freelancers.
If the Bavarians do not extend the contract with an experienced sniper, Manchester will make him an offer. The English see Choupo-Moting as a short-term but extremely solid option to bolster the offensive.
