Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are the main targets, but it looks like the club from Manchester will have to wait one more year to complete the deal of that magnitude following the recent signing of Jadon Sancho.
Manchester United were finally able to secure the signing of their main transfer target since over a year ago. Jadon Sancho was confirmed as a Red Devil, leaving those at the club out on the hunt for their next arrival: a big name striker.
For a long time the names of Harry Kane and (especially) Erling Haaland have been linked to Old Trafford. It’s clear that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side want a new elite-level number 9, however it looks like they will have to wait another year to complete a deal of that calibre.
According to information from ‘Manchester Evening News’, Manchester United will go all out for one of the two strikers during next summer’s transfer window in 2022. Both players currently have their futures far from wrapped up.
Kane is being tempted by Manchester City’s latest offer, while Haaland has spent the last few weeks being rumoured to be on his way to Chelsea – United’s direct competitor.
Despite that, Manchester United feel that they will be able to secure the signing of one of the two players next year, in doing so replacing an Edinson Cavani that only extended his contract at the club by one more term until 2022.
