Fabrizio Romano has dropped an update of Manchester United’s transfer Deadline Day plans as fresh rumours of a deal for a striker circulate.
Man Utd have been left with Rasmus Hojlund as their only natural No.9, with Anthony Martial out injured and even Marcus Rashford, who would be next in line, having faced scrutiny over his discipline in recent days.
Football transfer news expert Romano reports that a number of names have been offered to the Red Devils, giving them a suite of options to choose from, but Erik ten Hag is not interested in any of them.
“Manchester United have been offered multiple opportunities in the final opportunities. They have many names on the table but names like Martin Braithwaite, Hugo Ekitike, who is still on the market at PSG, but also Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. But nothing is heading in that direction,” Romano said.
“They’re keeping Amad Diallo in their squad. The plan there is quite clear. These players who have been offered to Man Utd are not priorities.”
Romano on Guirassy transfer rumours
There has also been fresh speculation surrounding Stuttgart forward Serhou Guirassy, but Romano says that it is unlikely that the 17-goal striker will be going anywhere at this point.
“I’m hearing new stories on Serhou Guirassy as a potential target, but from what I’m hearing, the release clause for him in the January transfer window has expired. It’s no longer valid. So in case Man Utd, Chelsea or any other club want to active the option now, it would be almost impossible because the player is staying with Stuttgart and the clause is not valid,” Romano explained.
“€17.5m was the clause but no one was able to trigger the clause and sign the player. The rumours we’re hearing in the last hours are not going in the correct direction.”
