Manchester United Football Club are in dire need of a striker who can guarantee over twenty goals a season, and although they have one of the most exciting talents in Anthony Martial, you feel more is needed if we are to succeed.
The Daily Mirror say that Louis van Gaal is prepared to spend big in the January transfer window, in a bid to salvage their season. The English publication go as far as saying that Romelu Lukaku is high on Edward Woodward’s wish list, and he would certainly provide some much-needed firepower.
Lukaku, 22, has been in scintillating form over in Liverpool, scoring goals for fun whilst giving the Toffees a real target man to aim at up top. He’d definitely improve Manchester United significantly, but you’d find it tough to see how Everton would be prepared to let the Belgian go in the middle of the season. He certainly feels like more of a summer signing if any deal is to be made.
