Manchester United are preparing an offer to sign 24-year-old striker Randal Kolo Muani ahead of next season.
According to Christian Falk via CaughtOffside, Manchester United want to sign Randal Kolo Muani in the summer. The Red Devils are on the lookout for a new number nine and have identified the French international as a great option.
The Red Devils are busy preparing an offer for the Eintracht Frankfurt striker. And, Falk believes that it is no longer realistic for the Bundesliga side to keep hold of their star striker. He said, “Everyone’s getting the feeling that it’s no longer realistic for Frankfurt to keep Randal Kolo Muani for one year more.”
“Manchester United is a big thing for Muani. They don’t have the right striker for this position; look at Wout Weghorst – he’s only scored two goals for them. They are preparing an offer for him. He knows that and if you have United in your head, it’s hard to concentrate on Frankfurt.”
Kolo Muani joined the FC Nantes youth academy back in the winter of 2015. He went through the ranks at the club before making a move to Frankfurt in the summer of 2022. The 24-year-old has been on fire since arriving in Germany.
The French international has 30 goal contributions in his 35 outings. He has found the back of the net on 16 occasions and has 14 assists to his name. His incredible form in front of the goal has attracted a lot of attention. And, quite a few big clubs have their eyes on the 24-year-old.
Kolo Muani’s current contract at the club runs until the summer of 2027. However, he is likely to be on the move in the upcoming transfer window given the amount of interest in his services. The player is aware of the interest in his services and he would love to move on to a bigger club.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are preparing an offer for the Frankfurt striker. Erik ten Hag is desperate to have a new number nine in his ranks to share the goal-scoring load with Marcus Rashford.
With Anthony Martial’s future uncertain and Wout Weghorst likely to return to his parent club in the summer, pushing for the 24-year-old looks like a great move. Kolo Muani has already proved his worth as a number nine by scoring 16 goals this season. And, his arrival will surely bolster United’s squad.
Ten Hag is looking to push for the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League title next season. Kolo Muani’s arrival will surely help his cause. However, Frankfurt’s £89 million price tag might make things difficult alongside interest from other clubs across Europe.
