Manchester United considering shock move for Premier League flop

In an attempt to sign a striker in January, Manchester United have put Premier League flop Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on their shortlist.

Only Sheffield United and Burnley, the lowest two teams, have scored fewer goals than United’s 22 goals so far this season.

Their center-forwards, Rasmus Hojlund and Anthony Martial, who have combined for just two league goals thus far, have been a major contributor to this issue.

The Red Devils are therefore looking to add some firepower this January, and reports that they have four names on their shortlist, all of whom are located in the Bundesliga.

Timo Werner presently at RB Leipzig has resurfaced as a target, while Bayern Legend Thomas Muller, and Serhou Guirassy, the wonder from Stuttgart, are all connected to Old Trafford.

After a very unsuccessful stint at Stamford Bridge, the 27-year-old left Chelsea, United is in talks to sign him.

However, Choupo-Moting’s name will draw the most attention since, with his Bayern Munich contract expiring this summer, he is being considered as a cheap option.

The 34-year-old attacker only managed to score five goals in 32 games for Stoke City during his one and only miserable season in England in 2018, which saw the Potters sent down to the Championship.

His subsequent career moves, however, created headlines. He signed with PSG and became a cult figure, helping the French powerhouses to their first Champions League final. Still, a record of nine goals in fifty-one games isn’t exactly remarkable.

The Cameroonian international’s return from his move to Munich has been better, as seen by his career-high 17 goals last season.

He hasn’t received as much attention as Harry Kane this season, but it’s unclear if he would be amenable to coming to Old Trafford or how serious United is about their interest.
