If Radamel Falcao leaves the club as expected this summer then Manchester United may not go for another striker.
They have, of course, brought in Memphis Depay and have James Wilson coming through the ranks to compete with Wayne Rooney and RvP.
But if, as is being suggested, RvP is sold by Manchester United, then they will surely look to reinforce up top.
The Guardian reports:
Robin van Persie is fighting for his Manchester United future, with the club ready to consider offers for the Dutchman this summer.
We strongly believe that Wayne Rooney will be left up top next season as the first choice No.9 who can make the position his own and break all the Manchester United and England scoring records. He’s as good as anyone in that position when he gets into his flow.
So, if another striker does come in, it would have to be a young player who is still maturing – a household name isn’t going to want to sit on the bench.
With the brilliant Argentine, Paulo Dybala, seemingly on his way to Juventus we think that Manchester United may take a look at the excellent young Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette.
The man capped 6 times by France has scored a remarkable 31 goals in 38 games this season and, at 23, looks like he could become a master technician of the game.
He’s been linked with Manchester United and he seems to have the perfect profile for the club.
He’s not so young and raw that he would struggle to fill Rooney’s shoes, if the Englishman was injured ahead of a big game. But he’s young enough to bide his time before he gets a regular run in the side.
He’s quick, confident, strong and precise. We think that he’s be a great buy for the club.
Let’s see the lad in actin. Manchester United fans: keen?
