Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani offers himself to Real Madrid amidst Manchester United interest
Randal Kolo Muani, who plays for Eintracht Frankfurt, had ‘offered’ himself to Real Madrid amidst interest from Manchester United, according to Marca (h/t Mirror).
The Red Devils are looking to add a new number nine to their ranks in the upcoming transfer window. To that end, the French national is one of the players on the club’s radar.
At the moment, Die Adler value the 24-year-old at £68.7 million. But it remains to be seen whether the Old Trafford side will be willing to match the Bundesliga outfit’s demands.
The 2022 Ballon d’Or winner is in the final stretch of his career. At 35 years of age, Madrid seemingly need to look for someone to lead them in the future.
Frankfurt’s 24-year-old has been electric since joining them on a free transfer last summer. The France international has found the back of the net 23 times and has provided 17 assists in 45 appearances in all competitions in the current campaign.

United’s attack has been carried by Marcus Rashford this season. The 25-year-old is the Red Devils’ leading goalscorer since Erik ten Hag’s arrival.
The Dutch manager has had a shortage of quality up top at the Old Trafford side. Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst have been the only natural number nines at the gaffer’s disposal over the last few months.
