Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Arsenal Benzema fight, Felix update, Chelsea desperation | Football | Sport

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is desperate for a new striker in January after terminating Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract. A host of top European talent has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, including Joao Felix, Alvaro Morata, Rafael Leao and Memphis Depay.

However, the Glazers are trying to sell the club so Ten Hag may not get the backing he requires in the winter window. The Dutchman may have to find a temporary solution while the takeover takes place.

United only have Anthony Martial as a recognised senior striker but Marcus Rashford could also play through the middle if need be. Ten Hag recently said: “Two things. Impulse can come out of our own club, see Garnacho, see Elanga, see Pellistri, who made a good impression at the World Cup and also in training. That is first.

“Second, yes, we are aware we lost a striker, so I think we have to get a striker in, but it has to be the right one.

“The right one is a player that brings quality to the team, not just adding to the squad because that only gives you problems. And, you know the criteria is high here at Manchester United.”
