Man Utd presented incredible opportunity to sign one of Erik ten Hag’s ‘first targets’.



Manchester United offered an extraordinary opportunity to acquire one of Erik ten Hag’s “primary targets.”In the interim, Anthony Martial has suffered the most recent in a string of persistent injury complications that have ultimately derailed his career with United. His return is anticipated in April subsequent to groin surgery.

Additionally, Facundo Pellistri is no longer a substitute option, as the confirmation of his brief loan to La Liga club Granada is imminent.


This leaves Rasmus Hojlund, a 20-year-old in his rookie season in English football, as the only natural striker for Ten Hag.Ten Hag has not considered Jadon Sancho since the initial month of the season on account of his exile. He has completely departed from Carrington, having completed a brief loan stint with Borussia Dortmund earlier this month.Antony failed to contribute to a goal until Sunday’s FA Cup match against League Two Newport County, and Marcus Rashford has his own issues both on and off the field.


United has added Alejandro Garnacho and Amad Diallo to its senior roster in place of the underperforming duo. Additionally featured is 19-year-old Omari Forson, who has made his first two appearances for the first team this week.However, an opportunity has presented itself to augment the assaulting department, and the Red Devils are faced with a time constraint to respond.Nevertheless, the current performance fails to provide the necessary offensive prowess to inspire optimism regarding United’s potential ascent into the top four and FA Cup run in the future weeks.Hugo Ekitike, a striker for Paris Saint-Germain, is reportedly vying for a loan during the latter half of the current season, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.


The 21-year-old has appeared in a single match for PSG this season, and a resolution was the subject of discussion on Tuesday.Ten Hag purportedly considered the France U21 international a striker target prior to his first summer as United manager, following his Stade Reims performance.


However, PSG secured Ekitike’s signature before the Old Trafford giants and Newcastle United, doing so on loan before finalizing the £30 million transaction in the summer.


Ten Hag possesses the opportunity to entice United to engage in a transfer to M16, should he maintain an interest. Nevertheless, this winter, the club’s Financial Fair Play restrictions might prove to be an insurmountable obstacle.
