Just like other European giants, Manchester United is going to intend to purchase some good assets in order to be as dangerous and powerful as they were a couple of seasons ago. It’s not a secret that the Red Devils have been spending money like it’s candy in players that haven’t delivered as expected, but this offseason they think things would be different.
This season the only striker that was actually good for Man. Utd. was Marcus Rashford, who relegated Belgian star Romelu Lukaku to be the second one in the Red Devils’ offensive. There have been rumors linking Lukaku to Italian side Internazionale and Manchester has already gotten to work to find a proper replacement for him.
According to Goal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has placed a €40 Million bid for Olympique Lyonnais striker Moussa Dembele. He had a good first season in Ligue 1 this one, netting 23 goals in all competitions after his arrival from Celtic. This definitely made United make their initial offer as Solskjaer tries to boost up his attack following a bad 2018-19 campaign.

We still have to wait to find out whether Dembele is interested in taking his talents to Old Trafford or he’ll go play somewhere else, as United will be playing European competitions next season but not the biggest one of them; they finished 6th this campaign and will play in the Europa League next year, hoping to count with good names within their roster, including Dembele, to have a good participation.
Besides Moussa, United has also been linked with other players across the continent such as Jadon Sancho, Nicolas Pepe, Matthijs de Ligt and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. At the same time speculation on the futures of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez is still here and now the only certain thing is that we’ll see a highly different Manchester United next season.
