Now it’s not a surprise anymore that LVG wants to bolster his team with young blood. After his arrival, he has signed players like Luke Shaw, Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo. All of these players are young and LVG is looking for more young guns. There are rumors that Manchester Unite is looking forward to sign Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez and Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson. Both of them are only 22 years old. Now reliable sources have expressed that LVG wants to improve his team’s attack even more and wants to sign Mainz striker Yoshinori Muto. The 23 year old Japanese striker is also interested to a move to the Premier League.
When Mainz’s “Football God” Alex Meier was injured for six months, the Mainz attack was in jeopardy. Alex Meier was the Bundesliga top scorer in 14-15 season. Mainz had to look for another option as it was sure that Meier would miss first few matches of the new season. They brought Japanese wonder kid Muto from FC Tokyo. After coming to Mainz, Muto made immediate impact. So far in this season, he appeared in 17 matches and scored 7. Moreover, he assisted 2 goals for his teammates. With deadly finishing and pacey dribbling, Muto can be a great addition to Manchester United’s frontline. Lack of options in frontline has been one of the major problems for Manchester United.
Mainz won’t sell Muto for anything less than 15M. There is a great possibility that Mainz will ask more as there is another competitor of Manchester United. Another Premier League big gun, Chelsea is also looking for players to strengthen their attack as they are having one of their worst seasons. Meanwhile, LVG is under immense pressure as once again his team failed to win against Chelsea to extend the winless run to eight games. It’s highly unlikely that the team will perform better in the second portion of the premier league without bringing new faces to the squad.
