Kylian Mbappé on Manchester United’s list of possible targets as ‘renowned striker’ of the club’s eye next summer

Man United forwards

The situation of the Manchester United striker is interesting today.

Anthony Martial would spend a good chunk of 2020/21 being used as the Red Devils’ main No. 9.

However, his return as a scorer before his season-ending injury was not good enough for a side with Premier League title ambitions.

The Frenchman scored just four goals in 22 league games last season.

United’s surprising problems were somewhat resolved in late 2020/21 when Edinson Cavani found the form and fitness to finish the season with 17 goals in 39 outings in all competitions.

And since then, Cavani has also signed at Old Trafford for the 2021/22 campaign.

Man United targets renowned striker

However, while Man United are largely covered as a center forward for this campaign, they will have a problem next summer when an aging Cavani contract expires.

This, at present, would leave only Martial and Mason Greenwood as recognized center forwards.

And while Greenwood is a serious talent and should have a very bright future ahead of him, it’s a lot for him to be United’s main No. 9 so soon. In addition, as already mentioned, Martial has shown that he is not good enough to be the main forward for a club like United, which should compete in the PL and the Champions League.

So the solution seems obvious: dive into the transfer market next summer to sign a forward once Cavani is gone.

And, according to a report by ESPN, that’s apparently the plan in the red half of Manchester.

They report that United is building for the future and plan to sign a center forward in the summer window of 2022.

Solskjaer and United’s recruiting team are drawing up a list of options, with PSG’s Kylian Mbappé, out of contract next summer, named as a potential target:
