Erik ten Hag is said to have already spoken with the leaders of the English formation and informed them of the need for reinforcements in the offensive.

Manchester United are looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo

Bayern Munich’s Maxim Choupo Mouting was reportedly one of the options considered but it seems another name is now at the forefront of talks.

Former Manchester United player Memphis Depay is wanted at Old Trafford, reports the Catalan daily sport. The Dutchman is not part of Xavi’s plans and could be dismissed this winter.

The Iberians would like a modest sum, 5 million euros, especially since the player’s contract expires at the end of the season. Depay has only played 3 games for Barcelona this season and scored just one goal.

Depay is present at the World Cup in Qatar with the Dutch national team, who beat Senegal 2-0 in the first match.

At the moment, Manchester United have 3 options for the centre-forward position: Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

  • Manchester United paid 34 million euros in 2015 to take over Depay from PSV. The striker lasted just two years and was sold to Lyon for 16 million euros
  • Depay had 53 games, 7 goals and 6 assists at Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo in advanced talks to sign with new club

Speculation over his future line-up has started to emerge, but it looks like the Portuguese is in close to an agreement with his new club. Daily Mark says that the negotiations between Cristiano Ronaldo and Al-Nassr are at an advanced stage and “the signing of the agreement is getting closer”.

It would be a proposal very similar to the one that Cristiano Ronaldo received this summer from Al-Hilal, namely a two-season contract with an annual salary of 125 million euros. Last summer, Cristiano Ronaldo preferred to refuse the offer from the Gulf area because, as the Portuguese himself announced, he felt he could still make a difference at a high level.

However, there are also reports from the press that Chelsea and Newcastle are interested in signing the Portuguese.

At the moment, Ronaldo’s relatives say the striker is fully focused on the World Cup.
