Mercato: with or without Ronaldo, Manchester United wants to transform its attack this summer

While he must settle the question of the future of his striker Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United has already planned to recruit several reinforcements in the offensive sector during the next summer transfer window.

Ronaldo is under contract until 2023 Manchester United

Sixth in the Premier League, five points from 4th place (with two more games), Manchester United will have a hard time qualifying for the Champions League this season. A real disappointment for a mythical club which still hasn’t been able to regain its former glory.

To return to the heights of the English championship on a regular basis, the residents of Old Trafford have decided to bet on Erik ten Hag, who will leave Ajax Amsterdam this summer to land in England. But a change of coach will not be enough to relaunch a workforce which has again shown its limits this season. Profound changes will be necessary within this team, and in all lines.

What next for Ronaldo?

One of the first issues to settle for the Red Devils concerns Cristiano Ronaldo (37). The Portuguese striker, under contract until 2023, will he still be Manchester next season? This is something we should talk about between Erik, the board and myself. Cristiano has one more year of contract. It is also important to know what he wants, if he wants to stay said coach Ralf Rangnick after the draw against Chelsea (1-1).

Scorer against the Blues on Thursday, CR7 confirmed his good form at the moment. The former Turinese remains on five goals in his last three games played. Despite criticism of his lack of influence in his team’s play since returning to England last summer, the Lusitanian is United’s top scorer (23 goals in 36 games) and continues to prove he remains a very important.

MU wants to recruit two attackers

At the moment we are counting on Cristiano a lot, he also showed a good performance when Chelsea were in possession of the ball , acknowledged Rangnick. Before saying that Manchester United will have to recruit in attack this summer, regardless of Ronaldo’s situation: We have to focus on the arrival of two new attackers, that’s for sure.

This week, the Italian press mentioned an offer of more than 100 million euros for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen. For its part, the English press has reported interest in the center forward of Ajax Amsterdam, Sbastien Haller. The Ivorian international is also interested in Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and AC Milan, but MU have a major advantage with the arrival of Ten Hag, their current coach in the Netherlands. One thing is sure, it will move within the Mancunian attack this summer.
