In a recent report, CBS Sports claimed that LOSC Lille striker Jonathan David is on the radar of Manchester United. It has been mentioned that the Red Devils have set their sights on the Canadian frontman this summer.
David’s Impressive Form At The Stade Pierre Mauroy
David is enjoying a productive season in French football as he has managed to find some consistency with his goal-scoring numbers over the past ten months. The 22-year-old has found the back of the net on 19 occasions in 47 matches for the French side during this campaign in all competitions.
The New York-born talent has led the line well for Lille based on his average of 1.9 shots, 0.9 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per 90 minutes in Ligue 1. He has even been careful with his ball distribution in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 78.3% in the French top-flight (stats via whoscored).
What Will David Bring To Manchester United?
David can use his quickness and agility to make some decent runs in behind the opponent’s backline. He can get himself into some dangerous areas in the attacking third of the field. The Canadian sensation deserves a lot of credit for being consistent with his productivity in front of the opposition goal. He has even got a great leap in him that helps him win a few headers for his side.
A striker of David’s skillset will be a welcome addition to Man United‘s squad this summer. We can expect the Lille youngster to bring plenty of goals to Erik ten Haag’s attack at Old Trafford. At 22, his peak years are ahead of him which makes him a good option for Man United to consider during this summer transfer window.
David is already good enough to rival Cristiano Ronaldo for a regular starting spot at the Mancunian club in the coming seasons. Thus, the Red Devils would be wise to launch a move to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams ahead of the new campaign.
