Manchester United ‘won’t rule out’ signing attacking player in the January transfer window
Manchester United are open to getting a new attacker in the January transfer window, according to Manchester Evening News (h/t Express). The Red Devils have not closed the door on a new forward coming in.
The World Cup in Qatar is around the corner. And United are looking forward to some of the market opportunities that will arrive. The Red Devils ‘won’t rule out’ moving on an attacking player in January.
However, United have some ‘major issues’ regarding their budget. The Red Devils got six players in during the summer of 2022. And most of the fresh faces have made an immediate impact in the starting XI.
United focused on every part of the pitch. First, Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez signed for the Old Trafford side.
Then, United got the likes of Caemiro and Antony, as well as Martin Dubravka on loan. The defence and midfield have seen two new signings. But the Red Devils only got Antony to bolster the attack. The 22-year-old reunited with Erik ten Hag.
Antony had a dream debut in the 3-1 win against Arsenal. The Brazilian winger scored the first goal against the Gunners.
During the recent transfer window, Ronaldo was seemingly looking for a way out of the club. However, the Portuguese ended up staying with the Red Devils.
United’s attack has looked full of energy under Erik ten Hag. The Dutch manager seems to have brought the best out of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho. The English duo have contributed some important goals against Arsenal and Liverpool.
