Manchester United has started to track an Atletico Madrid striker to replace Cristiano Ronaldo. Previously, they were chasing Dutch forward Cody Gakpo, who had just signed a contract with Liverpool.
Manchester United targeting Joao Felix
Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United are now out of a solid striker after a series of actions led them to part ways with Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. A few days after Cristiano’s exclusive interview with Piers Morgan, where he criticized Ten Hag and United’s board, his contract was canceled.
Despite this, the English club was hoping to sign the Dutch forward Cody Gakpo, who has been absolutely brilliant this season. With PSV, he has already scored 12 goals and provided 17 assists in the first 24 matches. Similarly, he was also solid in the World Cup, where he scored three goals in 5 matches.
There was a rumor that he is heavily linked with Manchester since they have monitored him since the last transfer. However, he has signed a contract worth almost 50 million with their worse rival, Liverpool.
Now, news is coming out that United has already started talking with Joao Felix and his agent to sign him as soon as possible. However, this won’t be easy as they are facing competition from Arsenal and Chelsea too.
