| Last Updated:


Fabrizio Romano has explained a Manchester United transfer problem that INEOS must decide on before the summer window opens.

Manchester United are looking at signing several new players this summer as Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS team decide who will be playing within Erik ten Hag‘s squad this summer.

Recent reports have explained that United are looking to sign a new striker, centre-back, and right-back, with the potential to secure another midfielder should Casemiro leave Old Trafford this summer.

“Man United are also planning to sign a new striker in the summer transfer window – the plan is very clear, they are waiting for a new director and a new board structure, but they want a new number 9,” transfer expert Fabrizio Romano told CaughtOffside.

“They will obviously respect the great numbers of Rasmus Højlund, and he will remain at the club, but one more striker is needed because Anthony Martial will leave Old Trafford as a free agent; there are no doubts about that.”

However, Romano also explained that United have a problem in that they don’t currently know what profile of striker to go for, considering that Højlund is only 21 years old.

“United still have to decide, however, if they want to go for a young player or an experienced player. There will be internal discussions about that, and United will take their time despite rumours about Joshua Zirkzee and Mathys Tel.

“We’ll see what they decide in the coming weeks and months, but for sure, a new striker will be a core part of their plans for the summer.”

He added: “Personally, I think Højlund still has huge potential, and I’ve been so impressed with his performances recently, so maybe an experienced striker who knows the league could help to make an instant impact and also to support Højlund while he’s still developing.”
