Manchester United who have played the season so far with only one striker up front despite attempts at signing several other before the summer transfer window ended may be playing with another striker as soon as January.
The Old Trafford based team who have performed incredibly so far as against their horrible turnout the past two seasons will definitely find solace in the fact that Anthony Martial will soon have somebody in the club who can relieve him in front and who can actually score goals.
The new striker is none other than Southampton’s Sadio Mane who might be on his way to the Old Trafford in January with reports coming out that Manchester United have sent a new offer to Southampton, in the tune of £20 million which the Saints are reportedly demanding for the services of their very important and powerful young striker Sadio Mane, who has undoubtedly been one of the best strikers in the English Premier League this season.
The team have had to rely only on Anthony Martial for goals this season with Wayne Rooney accute loss of form and Jamie wilson not mature enough and not enough options in front or in the wings. Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has therefore seen it as imperative to sign a new striker at all costs come the January transfer window.
Manchester United fans will definitely be happy with this new development and hope that nothing cuts short their joy over this news which if it materialises will help the team’s quest for the English Premiership Trophy or at least the top four again.
