Man United To Sign Top Striker From Cristiano Ronaldo’s New Club Al-Nassr
Man United to sign top striker from Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club Al-Nassr, reports have said.
News One reports that Manchester United are reportedly alerted to a possible January loan deal for Al-Nassr striker Vincent Aboubakar following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival in Saudi Arabia.
This online news platform understands that the Red Devils are on the lookout for a new number nine in the winter window, having waved a bitter goodbye to Cristiano Ronaldo following his contract termination.
Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have been left as Erik ten Hag’s only two central options, and Ronaldo completed a switch to Saudi giants Al-Nassr on a two-year deal last week.
According to the Daily Mail, the 37-year-old’s arrival in Saudi Arabia could trigger a loan exit for Aboubakar, who would therefore be a winter option for Man United.
Vincent Aboubakar left Besiktas in the summer of 2021 to join Al-Nassr, and he has registered two goals and one assist from nine league games in the 2022-23 campaign.
The Cameroon international who represented Porto for six years between 2014 and 2020 – has amassed a total of 11 goals and five assists in 36 games for Al-Nassr, and he caught the eye for Cameroon at the World Cup.
News One Nigeria recalls that Rigobert Song’s men suffered a group-stage elimination in Qatar, but Aboubakar came up with two goals and one assist in three games, including the winner against Brazil in their final match.
Man United are reportedly set to focus on loan signings for the January window before spending big in the summer, and a host of attackers have been tipped to move to Old Trafford in recent weeks.
