Manchester United’s forward Anthony Martial scored 23 goals last season but has been struggling in front of the goal this season. The Frenchman has not been in great form this season and Manchester United may look for possible replacements next season. Edinson Cavani turned 34 this month and although he is in fine form, he cannot be the starter next season as age is not on his side. Here are the three possible replacements for Martial.
1. Dominic Calvert-Lewin
The Everton forward has been in great form this season under Carlo Ancelotti. The 23-year-old has scored 18 goals in all competitions and 13 in the Premier League. The English forward has been benefitted this season with Lucas Digne’s crossing. Manchester United can look to sign the Englishman next season. Calvert-Lewin’s hold-up play is also good and is one of the best headers of the ball in the Premier League. Alex Telles is an excellent crosser of the ball and Luke Shaw has been great with his attacking play this season.
2. Alexander Isak
United beat Real Sociedad and booked their place in the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League. However the Sociedad forward, Alexander Isak has impressed with his performances over the two legs. The 21-year-old has scored 12 goals in La Liga this season and has his contract with the Spanish club until 2024. The Swedish forward has a lot of potentials to be world-class and has age on his side. Isak has a good pace and burst of acceleration and will be perfectly fit in United’s side given how they counter-attack opponents. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also known for working with young players.
3. Erling Braut Haaland
Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland will be a dream signing for Manchester United given his recent form. But the forward will cost somewhere between 150 million pounds to 200 million pounds. Haaland is one of the best young players in the world and almost every top European club wants to sign him but his high transfer fee is causing lots of problems. Erling Haaland started his football career under Solskjaer and the United fans would love to see the player reunited with the boss.
