Manchester United are in desperate need of a new striker or two in the very near future.
Right now, the Red Devils have Anthony Martial and Cristiano Ronaldo as natural centre-forward options.
However, the latter is clearly pushing for a move away from Old Trafford and has been linked with every name under the sun.
And even if he does not leave this summer, Ronaldo is coming to the end of his career and has just one year left on his deal anyway.

As for Anthony Martial, the Frenchman has returned to Manchester after a disappointing loan spell with Sevilla. And whilst the forward has scored two in two pre-season games under Erik ten Hag, he has proven in the past that he is simply not good enough to be a starting no.9 for a top Premier League club.
So who should Manchester United sign to fix their striking woes? Well, Fabrizio Romano has shared his thoughts on that situation on Monday:
“My understanding earlier in the summer was that Man United would 100% be in the market for a new central striker. They had an interest in Darwin Nunez before he went to Liverpool, but were unsure about the price,” Romano explained.
“Since then, it’s certainly the case that the situation of Cristiano Ronaldo has surprised and slowed down Manchester United’s move of the new striker.
“If I were in charge of recruitment at Old Trafford, I feel a player like Paulo Dybala is an incredible free agent opportunity for all the top clubs in the world.
“If I had to invest in a younger player, I personally love Lille’s Jonathan David as a talent, and I would try this move.”
