Check Out “Harry Kane is linked with Manchester United as they search for a promising forward.” The rumors and indications that United are seeking Kylian Mbappe, who is the subject of a world record proposal from Al Ahli after Paris Saint-Germain made the decision to sell him, have been played down by people affiliated with the club.
When asked about a potential move for Mbappe, even if it were on loan, Ten Hag responded, “We never speak about players who are under contract in other clubs.”
United needs a striker to bolster a goal-shy side, as the club’s total of 58 goals scored was comfortably the lowest among the top six teams in the Premier League. Although Marcus Rashford set a new career high with 30 goals for the club, Ten Hag is looking for greater production from the rest of the team.
“We are underperforming there, and we are aware of it so others have to contribute also in that area but therefore we are looking for scoring abilities,” said Ten Hag, who has given the go-ahead for forward Anthony Elanga to join Nottingham Forest.
“I believe that already we have a player in Mason Mount who is capable of not only scoring goals but also creating them and putting play players like Marcus Rashford into position to score more goals. Mason Mount has the ability to do all of these things.”
“However, as a collective unit, we need to increase our scoring.”
Manchester United, according to Erik ten Hag, are making strides in their search for a new striker.
The acrimonious departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and the January loan signing of Wout Weghorst highlighted the necessity for an attacking acquisition. Old Trafford was already without a frontman in his first season there.
This summer, United added goalkeeper Andre Onana and midfielder Mason Mount, but they are still looking to add a striker. Rasmus Hojlund of Atalanta is the player they are after.
In contrast to Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani, the Old Trafford giants are only rumored to be prepared to spend up to £60 million on the Danish international.
Ten Hag responded when questioned about United’s search for a striker, “We make progress, definitely.
But as you are aware, we will inform you directly once we have him.
“All I can say is that we’re doing everything we can to make it happen.
As quickly as possible, if it were up to me. Because we need to integrate him into the team and method of playing, the earlier the better.
In a perfect world, he would already be here, but managers must sometimes cope with less-than-ideal circumstances.
