Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s Manchester United have certainly improved this season from what they were last season. However, they still don’t seem to be at the complete top. As of now, they sit 14 points behind leaders Manchester City as both the clubs head into the Manchester Derby this upcoming Sunday. The Norwegian has had finishing problems up front. This United side looks solid and stable defensively but they are lacking crucial and clinical finishing up front. The did sign Edinson Cavani as a free agent but he is not scoring regularly. Marcus Rashford and Antony Martial, while they do get goals, they have wasted many big chances that have cost them points.
Three forward options for Manchester United for the upcoming summer transfer window
#1 Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund | Position: Forward | Age: 20)
Haaland has been having the time of his life on the pitch for the last couple of years, individually. The youngster has been brilliant in Europe and domestically too. He is extremely quick and clinical for his age. The youngster would be perfectly fit for Manchester United. Bruno Fernandes creates a ton of chances that is wasted by the forwards. However, with the clinical characteristics of Haaland, United can finally become clinical and not drop points unnecessarily. The 20 year old has a 110 million release clause if he is to be landed this summer and a 100 million release clause which is valid during the summer transfer window of 2022.
#2 Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain | Position: Forward | Age: 22)
The Frenchman will be another fantastic addition to Manchester United if he is signed. The Paris Saint Germain forward has been off the charts ever since his Monaco days. Iconic performances with Monaco, the France National Team in the 2018 World Cup, and 100 goals for Paris Saint Germain in under 3 years, the forward has really got it all. Extreme amount of pace alongside clinical finishing and unreal dribbling skills, Mbappe would be an ideal Stretford End forward. It has been pretty long since the Theater of Dreams has witnessed a player of that sort.
#3 Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan | Position: Forward | Age: 23)
The Argentine forward would be yet another fantastic addition to Manchester United if signed. The young forward is quick, clinical and is capable of producing goals on his own. Many compare the youngster to a young Sergio Aguero who joined Manchester City ten years ago and he went on to be City’s greatest player ever and Premier League’s best foreign center forward of all time. Lautaro’s game is extremely similar to that of a young Sergio Aguero in many ways. If United can get their hands on the Inter Milan forward, he can very well go onto be a star at Old Trafford.
