Erik ten Hag, the head coach of Manchester United, has confirmed that the club is making “progress” in their pursuit of a new striker. As United seeks to bolster their attacking options, rumors have swirled around a potential move for Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, but Ten Hag remained tight-lipped on the matter.
Mbappe has recently expressed his desire not to sign a new contract with PSG, making him available for transfer. It is widely anticipated that he will join Real Madrid on a free transfer in 2024. However, he has also been linked to a £259 million move to Saudi Pro League club Al Hilal.
Meanwhile, Manchester United has been on the lookout for a striker since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure at the end of 2022 and the lackluster performance of Wout Weghorst. While they have made signings like Mason Mount from Chelsea and Andre Onana from Inter Milan, the much-awaited arrival of Rasmus Hojlund has not materialized yet, and rumors suggest that PSG is also interested in him.
When asked about United’s efforts to secure a new forward, Ten Hag acknowledged that progress is being made but refrained from giving specific details. He emphasized that the club is working diligently to finalize the signing and integrate the new player into the team’s style of play.
As for the speculations surrounding Kylian Mbappe, the coach refused to discuss players who are under contract with other clubs, maintaining a diplomatic approach to the ongoing transfer saga.
United fans eagerly await further developments in the club’s striker pursuit as they hope for a strong addition to bolster their attacking lineup for the upcoming season.
