Spanish news outlet, Dan Balon has reported that Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic is more interested in a move to Real Madrid than Manchester United. This is not concerning news for the United faithful as they have already got their winger in Alexis Sanchez. Jose Mourinho might already have made all his offensive additions and will be prioritising a move for a left-back.
However, it is uncertain as to what the Portuguese are exactly planning for the summer window after conceding the league title to their ‘noisy neighbours’.
Pulisic is already a first team regular in the USA national team. Blessed with blinding pace of the wings, the Pennsylvania-born attacker is a prolific talent and currently displaying promises of future stardom.
Primarily a winger by trade, Pulisic does possess the technical ability and vision to take up a more creative role judging by his performances for the German outfit after the departure of Ousmane Dembele last summer.
Manchester City’s plans for expansion are boundless and has been hard to match up to judging by the current season.
And losing out on a 19-year-old starlet who you can build a future around is something to rethink about. Here are a few players the United management should consider.
The highly rated Ligue 1 star is single-handedly leading a young Olympique Lyonnais squad through the current campaign with 19 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions. An astounding tally for a player who is in no sense a centre-forward.
Club president Jean-Michel Aulas has expressed his views deeming the 24-year-old to be more influential to the club than Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian superstar, Neymar. Blessed with a terrific left foot, Fekir can play the number ten role and lead the attacking lineup on a consistent basis. His incredible free kick against the league leaders on 22 January only showed a glimpse of what he is capable of.
French sensation Thomas Lemar broke into the big stage of football after a fantastic last season at Monaco. The winger who was a star player in the free-flowing Monaco team last year created 106 chances alone for the Ligue 1 champions.
Lemar’s name around European football spread like wildfire after AS Monaco’s title-winning 2015/16 season and was pursued aggressively by Arsenal last summer. The 22-year-old has registered 8 appearances for the French national side and is expected to be in the squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
He plies his trade for FC Girondins de Bordeaux and had been targeted by United in the January window along with a host of Premier League clubs.
