Ronaldo’s departure from Manchester, it opens up a position of a striker. United will need a quality striker to replace the Portuguese captain. According to Fichajes, Manchester United are interested in Bayer Leverkusen‘s Moussa Diaby. The youngster have eight goals and four assists in 22 appearances this season. Diaby’s contract runs till 2025 and Leverkusen will not be selling the player at a cheap rate.

Other United strikers’ status
Anthony Martial is an amazing player but he obviously could never be considered as Rolando’s replacement even with his goals-to-minute ratio remaining high. Martial’s injury has been an ongoing problem for the player. Marcus Rashford is the club’s top scorer so far but the young player has still got a lot to improve in his game.
