The fact that the Old Trafford team has difficulty finding goals is the biggest problem of coach Erik Ten Hag. Rashford has not been in his best form when it comes to finishing, while Jadon Sancho, who has failed to live up to expectations since joining MU from Dortmund last year.
However, MU will have a hard time recruiting Schick when the striker who received the best goal award at EURO 2020 has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen until 2027, and has not been in high form this season.
Lille’s Jonathan David is also a MU target
In addition to Patrik Schick, MU has also targeted Jonathan David of Lille and Moussa Dembele of Lyon. These are the moves to prepare for the departure of Ronaldo, who has so far fallen out of favor at Old Trafford under coach Ten Hag. CR7 often has to sit on the bench this season and constantly causes conflicts with the Dutch military leader.
