Manchester United Football Club closed the curtains on a mixed season with a Europa League victory. Although Jose Mourinho’s side managed to scoop two trophies, their Premier League form was somewhat worrying – particularly the number of home games that were drawn.
With the summer transfer window now in full flow, Edward Woodward and the rest of the club staff will be doing their utmost to bring new players through the Old Trafford doors.
That hasn’t stopped Ryan Giggs reflecting on what United’s biggest issue was last season, though; goals. Outside of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, we didn’t really have that prolific output when it comes to hitting the back of the net, and the Welsh Wizard has claimed that simply has to be fixed this summer.
“They lack goals. There was too much dependence on Ibrahimovic and obviously, they’ll miss him at least for the start of the season.” Giggs is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
“They need to bring players in who’ll score goals, and one goalscorer who’s going to get 20-plus.”
I think it comes as no secret, to be honest. As the club legend says, Ibrahimovic will likely miss the start of the campaign and that in itself poses a problem.
The onus will be on Marcus Rashford if Mourinho doesn’t sign a new face, and to have so much pressure on his young shoulders mustn’t be easy. With that said, I’d like to believe that Mourinho has a list of targets in the #9 role, and hopefully, Woodward will be able to bring in at least one of those guys before the start of the new season in August.
