The Red Devils leaders are seriously considering the possibility of recruiting striker Eric Choupo-Moting from Bayern Munich to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Cameroonian striker is doing well as a substitute for Lewandowski at the Allianz Arena.
A source from Media Foot said, Choupo-Moting is one of the goals that Coach Ten Hag likes very much, possessing a wealth of experience and versatility.
The former Stoke City striker will expire his contract with the Gray Lobster next summer. Therefore, MU can bring Choupo-Moting to Old Trafford on a free transfer.
Currently, Bayern bosses are also inviting Choupo-Moting to sign a new contract after a series of impressive performances since the beginning of the season.
The career of the German-born player (of Cameroonian origin) is quite strange, because he was relegated to the Premier League during his time with Stoke but then joined two “giants” PSG and Bayern Munich.
At the age of 33, Choupo-Moting is having the best memories of his career, scoring 8 goals in 13 games with Bayern and providing 3 assists for his teammates.
His parameters are superior to Ronaldo at MU. The Portuguese star has only “shot” 3 times this season.
It is almost certain that CR7 will leave Old Trafford next year. Therefore, the bosses at Old Trafford and coach Ten Hag are looking for a short-term alternative.
