Christopher Nkunku on Man United’s summer transfer list

Man United have identified Christopher Nkunku as a possible transfer target for this summer.

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that this Manchester United squad is in need of a major overhaul.

Ralf Rangnick has done his best in a short space of time to try and turn our results around. However, the German hasn’t really received the desired output from his players back in return. Simply put, many of them look disinterested.

Thankfully, several of these guys will not be at the club in 2022/23. However, money will have to be spent in order to replace these guys.

Planning is made somewhat harder due to the fact that we’re still unsure of the new manager’s identity. Although all roads currently point to Erik ten Hag, nothing is confirmed and pre-planning will be tough.

Behind the scenes, the club will have identified some possible targets. According to journalist Florian Plettenberg, Christopher Nkunku is one of the potential options for the Old Trafford club.

Apparently, the 24-year-old midfielder is on United’s summer transfer list, with Ralf Rangnick a ‘big fan’ of the player he worked with during his time at RB Leipzig.

The club is considering the option to bring Nkunku to United, though there are still many other options out there for the 20-time Premier League champions.

With Paul Pogba set to leave, while Nemanja Matic continues to get older, I’d argue that signing a top-level midfielder is our biggest need going into the summer.

Let’s be honest, we can hardly rely on Scott McTominay and Fred to deliver consistent performances, either.

Nkunku is a man who could slot straight into our starting line-up and bring some much-needed energy to the fold.

Signing Nkunku will not be easy, though. No doubt they’ll be plenty of other interested parties, while United’s lack of Champions League football on offer could prove to be a massive turn-off for the player.

Would a Man United move for Christopher Nkunku make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
