While Manchester United is on the lookout for a new striker, a lot of names have come out this week that the club may target in the next couple of weeks that remain in the transfer window. On Tuesday, it was reported by Rob Dawson from ESPN that some intermediaries offered Alvaro Morata to the Manchester side.

Today, sources close to Manchester United, Laurie Whitwell and Philip Buckingham from ‘The Athletic’ have both agreed that the Spanish striker is really being considered in the club’s headquarters. The player and United have held conversations in recent days and they expect the transfer would be around €35 million.

In addition, Atleti would accept a loan deal for one season, however, Morata would command significant wages. The reporters also say that the Old Trafford side have not followed through with their initial interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mauro Icardi. “Auba” might end up at Chelsea after Thomas Tuchel hasn’t denied his interest in him.

Lastly, it was reported that Memphis Depay’s agents also made contact with MUFC. But it doesn't look like a real option as he has advanced talks with Juventus. It is very likely that the Dutch forward will end up in Turin and not make a return to Old Trafford. Let’s remember that Memphis played for United from 2015 to 2017 after flopping in the Premier League.

Anyone could arrive

Nothing is certain at the moment as every day a new name is added to the list of players linked with Manchester United. However, if the club has the possibility of signing Morata for a season loan deal, that would be a great piece of business. The 29-year-old forward can play down the left wing or in the striker position, solving all Erik ten Hag’s troubles in the attack in the short term.
