While Anthony Martial is out with an injury and Cristiano Ronaldo’s future remains uncertain, Erik ten Hag, and the Manchester United board are on the lookout to find a new striker who could arrive at Old Trafford in the next couple of weeks to solve all his problems in the offensive department as soon as possible.

After walking away from Marko Arnautovic, Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic was being considered by the club. Then Alvaro Morata emerged as an alternative after some intermediaries offered the former Chelsea forward to the Red Devils. However, it seems that he wasn’t really considered a real option for the club due to his high wages.

Today there is new information coming out of Spain, as ‘Partidazo de COPE’ has reported that Manchester United is currently negotiating with RCD Espanyol for the signing of Raúl de Tomás. It is being said that he would only cost around €25 to €30 million. He has been recently added to United’s shortlist of strikers.

It was also reported that the English giants are not the only club interested in RDT. The player wants to leave this summer in order to take a step forward in his career. Espanyol wouldn’t refuse to sell him, but they want a good amount of money for him and will take the highest bid that comes through for their player.

A good player for an affordable price

The 27-year-old striker just had a great season with Espanyol, which made him get called up to Spain’s national team, where he is now considered by their coach Luis Enrique ahead of the FIFA World Cup in November. The former Real Madrid academy player scored 17 goals and handed out 3 assists in 36 matches played.
