We need to get a striker in: Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag indicated that he needs a striker in the January transfer window.

Manchester United has missed out on another forward named Cody Gakpo as their target was signed by Liverpool FC on Monday night. Liverpool FC signed the Dutch star forward who was a Man United’s target. Manchester United’s manager Erik ten Hag said that he wants a new striker in the January transfer window as the Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo left the club with immediate effect.

Ronaldo played some games for United this season but the club and the player decided to part ways in mid-season. According to Fabrizio Romano, there are plenty of names United are looking at for this transfer window.

Atletico Madrid’s star forward Joao Felix is also rumoured to leave the club for Manchester United. Both United and Arsenal are interested in the player and a loan deal is possible (as reported by Fabrizio Romano). Erik ten Hag has played Marcus Rashford in number 9 position many a times but still searching for the new one in the market.

“We have lost a striker so we need to get a striker in, but has to be the right one who brings quality into the team, not just adding to squad,” said Erik ten Hag as reported by Fabrizio Romano via his official Twitter handle.
