Despite their extended absence, many players still feel a strong bond with Manchester United
In the Premier League’s inaugural encounter, Man Utd suffered a humiliating 1-2 loss to Brighton. There aren’t many options in the assault for coach Erik ten Hag to pick from. Cristiano Ronaldo is not in the best of health, while Anthony Martial is injured.
Coach Ten Hag was compelled to explore for additions as a result. The transaction rapidly came to an end because Manchester United requested to purchase Marko Arnautovic, according to The Guardian. Bologna’s refusal to sell Arnautovic is the cause.
Javier Hernandez, also known as Chicharito, commented after seeing the Reds’ situation: “If United came and offered me, I would say “sure, I’ll play football without salary.” Of course, I’ll carry out your request.
I do, however, respect my club. I’m playing regularly, and in my head, I think LA Galaxy will win a title. Future events may occur, but for the time being, my whole attention is on the LA Galaxy.”
Chicharito added the following: “United must come to terms with the loss of Sir Alex Ferguson. Are they the kind of person we want? No doubt. However, Sir Alex is no longer alive, therefore that will never happen again.
I’m not surprised by what transpired at United because, in real life, having a manager for 26 years, as Sir Alex did, is not simple.”
Manchester United has identified the next target in attacking position.
In addition to midfield transfer targets, Man Utd coach Erik ten Hag is looking to strengthen the attack front.
Due to Anthony Martial’s injury, the Old Trafford team was unable to get a true 9 in the opening match of the EPL, and Cristiano Ronaldo played too little in pre-season and only came on in the second half.
As a result, Ten Hag wishes to add personnel to this area as soon as possible before the summer market closes. According to journalist Alex Crook, they are currently interested in PSV’s versatile striker Cody Gakpo.
Crook stated on Talk Sport:
“Gakpo is another name on Man United’s radar.” I believe this player will appeal to Manchester United fans more than Marko Arnautovic.”
Gakpo is primarily a left winger, but he can also play in the center or on the opposite flank as needed. As a result, Manchester United can fully capitalize on the Dutch star’s flexibility in assembling the appropriate squad.
The success of this deal, however, is still dependent on a number of factors, including the support of the legendary Red Devils – Ruud van Nistelrooy, who is taking over as PSV head coach.
