Manchester United are diving head first into a striker shortage at the club. With Anthony Martial 100% leaving after his contract expires in June, Rasmus Hojlund will remain as the only recognized striker at Old Trafford.

As such, the club will be in the market for a striker and rumours are already swirling with solid links to strikers like Ivan Toney and Real Madrid’s Joselu.

Spanish publication Marca, earlier today contributed to the rumours stating that in form Fulham striker Rodrigo Munoz harbours dreams of one day donning the red of Man United.

The Spanish outlet claims that since “he was little, his dream was to play for Manchester United”.

Muniz endured a tough start to life in England after moving in 2021 after only scoring five goals in the Championship for the Cottagers.

He went out on loan to Middlesbrough last season but could only manage two goals in 889 minutes of action.

The Brazilian has adapted to life much better in the Premier League, however. He is in a massive purple patch as he has scored eight goals in nine games for Fulham, including a spectacular scissor kick against Sheffield United in added time last Saturday.

The paper describes the forward as a “classic number nine inspired by Zlatan Ibrahimović” and is the Craven Cottage side’s top scorer in all competitions with nine goals.

The forward is only 22 years old and as such, he certainly is an interesting prospect for the future.

United have scored a woeful 40 goals in 29 matches, and it makes perfect sense why Untied would be interested in his services.

The youngster is a versatile forward who offers a number of different qualities in attack, and that is exactly what Man United are looking for.

He would also be cheaper than their reported targets.

It will be interesting to see the clubs that line up for Muniz in the summer, especially if he carries this rich vein of form into May.
