The Red Devils made a considerable investment this summer by acquiring the talents of Rasmus Hojlund. Despite Anthony Martial serving as a reserve, it’s hardly shocking that the Old Trafford outfit continues to be connected with potential new additions to their forward line.
The young Hojlund, just 20 years old, has adapted admirably to life at United, carving out success in spite of limited opportunities to shine. His knack for finding the net in Europe is noteworthy, with five goals that currently place him at the forefront of Champions League scorers.
With the transfer window approaching, it seems prudent for Erik ten Hag to augment his strike force, ideally with a seasoned player who isn’t on the verge of hanging up their boots. Anticipation is mounting that January might see United opt for an economical signing, a seasoned striker to inject some much-needed vigor and depth to their offensive ranks.
Amid the search for such a player, as per multiple reports, Manchester United is considering signing Porto’s accomplished forward Mehdi Taremi, a sentiment echoed by Inter Milan’s reported interest.
As United’s attacking options appear to dwindle with Hojlund’s diminishing influence and the current form slump of established names like Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, the quest for reinforcements intensifies.
Report from Inter Live indicates Taremi has caught the eye of Inter as they too look for an affordable striking solution. However, United’s pursuit could pose a significant challenge in the bid for the 31-year-old come January.
Taremi’s goal-scoring prowess at Porto has been noteworthy. Yet, questions linger over how his skills would translate in a more demanding league.
For United’s purposes, his immediate impact might not be critical. Rather, his role could be to offer a different option from Hojlund for the interim.
Financially, Taremi is said to be obtainable for a comprehensive outlay close to €30million, a figure encompassing transfer fees and salary over a proposed three-year period, as the reports detail.
