In quest of a new striker, Manchester United is expected to enter the summer transfer market this summer.
Manchester United have reduced their attacking options to just Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, and Cristiano Ronaldo after allowing Anthony Martial to join Sevilla and Mason Greenwood’s absence following his arrest at the start of the season.
Rashford, Cavani, and Ronaldo all have scenarios that would make many managers happy, but for Manchester United, the trio’s positions are proving to be problematic.

Although Ronaldo has been under fire recently, with some experts claiming that his time at the top is coming to an end, it is the Portuguese superstar who is posing the biggest questions for interim manager Rangnick. With only one goal in his previous ten appearances, the Portuguese superstar has come under fire recently, with some analysts suggesting that his time at the top is coming to an end.
Rangnick (as quoted by ESPN) recently stated that the club’s need to sign a fresh, younger striker in the summer is evident: “This is obvious [the need to sign a younger striker].”
Edison’s contract will expire at the end of the season, and the team is in desperate need of the best available centre striker. This one should go without saying. “I believe that everyone is aware of this.”
Pedulla, an Italian journalist who spoke to FC Inter 1908, indicated that the Red Devils could target Napoli’s Victor Osimhen as the next target in their continuing striker saga. This is the latest in a long line of suggestions from Pedulla.
“It’s true what they say. The Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca has been contacted by Napoli, according to Pedulla. Furthermore, our reconstructions indicate that it was an attempt in connection with a likely pharaonic proposition for Victor Osimhen next summer.”
“It’s possible that Manchester United’s proposition is being considered. ” In addition to what his brother stated some time ago when he spoke about the Red Devils courting him, the voices of recent days are combined.
It was because there was another Nigerian present at the time (Odion Ighalo), and Osimhen did not want to compete, that he decided not to participate.
Since joining Napoli from Lille in 2020 in a deal costing a remarkable £67.5 million, Osimhen, who has a contract with the club until 2025, has appeared in 52 games across all competitions, assisting on 28 goals in the process.
