4 Players Manchester United can sign to replace Ronaldo- No.3 will be a perfect signing

Who replaces Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester United?

After a fallout with the club, the Glazers (owners) and the manager Erik Ten Hag, in a club statement by Manchester United, they thought it wise they could not continue with Ronaldo hence terminated his contract. However, the English Football Association has sanctioned Ronaldo with a two matches ban and a 50,000 Euro. This sanction will be applied only if he gets his next club in the English League or any other abroad. He’s been warned not to breach any future conduct as in the FA rule E8

Ronaldo joined Manchester United after he left Juventus to joined Manchester City but decided to canceled that deal to sign for United instead after Sir Alex Ferguson intervened.

It all started after the forward did not turn up for pre-season and a lot of the media reporting he wouldn’t be playing in the Europa League and will want to move out from the club to join a Champions League team. Other reports suggested also, he was rejected by many of the clubs Jorge Mendes, his agent offered him to. Notable ones are; Barcelona, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and even Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.

But who replaces Cristiano after his departure in the winter transfer? These are possible players for his replacement.

Memphis Depay. Will that name come up in mind? This will be his second coming to club if a transfer is finally seized. In his first time, he didn’t perform well as much as expected. But could that be attributed to his inexperience at that age and time? If yes then he’s now developed and a proper goal scorer. Signing him will be a little bit much easier and cheaper since he’s not getting more game time and Lewandoski, and Ansu Fati are more preferred by Xavi to him. Personal terms with the player wouldn’t be difficult also since he’s willing to move especially to an English club in the Premier League. Maybe he would want to prove a point when he comes back to the Old Trafford.

Taremi. In a short run, it makes wise to go in for a 30year old player who plays for Porto in the Portuguese league. He will be less expensive. He already have 6 goals and 5 assists, totaling a 11 goal contribution in his league in 13 matches played, 1 goal and 1 assist in the Europa competition doing that in 3 matches. You only have to get him now and spend big in the summer.

Harry Kane. He’s known to be one of the best number 9 currently. The Tottenham Hotspur player might want to move from his current club to another. He has once forced to his movement away but failed. He his a top and proven goal scorer in the league but hardly see Tottenham win trophies. At the point of his career, he might want to win trophies and the best solution will be for him to move to a more challenging club of which Manchester United is an option. He has just one year left on his contract and Tottenham will have to cash him out or loose him for free.

Cody Gakpo. On a long term, just get him. He’s a perfect striker that in any day fit into ETH style of play. He’s tall and strong and more of a left sided forward but can also play as a striker. He has a sensible off ball positioning and relies on beating his man and mostly break forward runs. You won’t see him touching the ball much, but the ones looks more dangerous. But the difficulty here will be if PSV will be willing to break this transfer. However, the player is willing to move to the Red Devils.

Anthony Martial. Maybe, there’s no reason to splash the money elsewhere but keep Martial in that position. He had a good turn up in the pre-season scoring some couple of goals. He looks so certain in Ten Hag’s system and it favors him more. But will he go injury free for United to rely on him?

Man United, in the Europa League will be playing Barcelona in the next round of the competition in February and they will have to win to progress to the next stage.
