Manchester United target Moussa Diaby to boost forward line – Man United News And Transfer News

After Fulham’s victory, most Manchester United supporters expected a quiet World Cup in which their players would shine and return injury-free.

But what happened instead left a bad taste in everyone’s mouths. Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo decided to go on air to criticize the club for betraying him and manager Erik ten Hag for disrespecting him.

The Portuguese also reserved scathing comments for United legends Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville, as well as former caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick.

And his incendiary interview meant United had no choice but to mutually agree to a split which was finally announced a couple of days ago.

While it will help Ten Hag and his team focus on the job at hand without further distraction, Ronaldo’s departure opens up the need for a quality replacement in January.

United’s current options don’t exactly inspire confidence at the moment. Anthony Martial’s goals per minute ratio is still high, but his injury history remains a cause for concern.

Marcus Rashford is once again playing with a smile on his face and is the club’s leading goalscorer so far this season, but his finishing prowess still requires quite a bit of work.

Names like Cody Gakpo, Joao Félix and Marcus Thuram have already been mentioned as options, but a new name has come into play.

Diaby the answer?

According to Fichajes, Bayer Leverkusen star Moussa Diaby has become a surprise target for the Reds. The 23-year-old has eight goals and four assists in 22 appearances in all competitions this season.

Diaby has been a part of Leverkusen since 2019 and has contributed a total of 43 goals and 41 assists in 146 appearances.

His contract runs until 2025 and Leverkusen will not sell their star asset cheaply.

The report further states that Ten Hag is eyeing the French international as a replacement for Martial and a summer deal is not beyond possibility. Manchester United target Moussa Diaby to boost forward line
