Morata and Depay among transfer options for Manchester United

Manchester United are in the process of trying to add to Erik ten Hag’s options up front.

According to The Athletic, Atletico Madrid and Spain striker Alvaro Morata is a genuine possibility, while Memphis Depay is another player whose agents have contacted United.

The Barcelona forward already had a brief United career, and I don’t think a return would excite supporters, who are angry enough with how the club is being run over the past 17 years. He scored seven goals in 53 games during his time at Old Trafford and we need someone who can top in one season.

It is believed that emphasis to sign a new goalscorer intensified after Anthony Martial picked up an injury ahead of the season opener against Brighton & Hove Albion. United lost that match 2-1, adding even more pressure to John Murtough and Richard Arnold as they try to land the new manager’s targets before the transfer deadline in three weeks.

The report also stresses that moves for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mauro Icardi are unlikely.

With Cristiano Ronaldo set to remain at Old Trafford for another season, despite claims he asked to leave the club this summer, United are still doing whatever they can to sign a new attacker.

Let us know in the comments section if you would take Morata at United next season?
