The youngest member of The 4th Official and an ardent Premier League fan who is basically obsessed with scouting young talents and is consumed by the idea of finding the perfect number 10.

Recent reports from Spanish media outlet Fichajes state that Manchester United are keen on signing Bayer Leverkusen striker Moussa Diaby in the upcoming transfer window as Erik ten Hag looks set to add to his options in attack.

‘However, the expectation that Martial generated in his day has not come true at any time in the four years that the French attacker has been at Old Trafford, something that has ended the patience of Manchester United that despite the arrival of Erik Ten Hag has not been able to see the best version of the French attacker, hence he begins to look for a starting destination for him next summer, having thought to replace him with another French player like Moussa Diaby, a 23-year-old Bayer Leverkusen footballer.’ – the translated version of the report stated.

Diaby’s current contract at the BayArena runs until 2025.

A Decent Addition To ten Hag’s Squad?

Having come through the ranks at Paris Saint-Germain, Moussa Diaby signed for Bayern Leverkusen in the summer of 2019 for a fee in the region of €15 million. Over the course of the past three years, the France international has made 146 appearances for Die Werkself, scoring 43 goals and assisting 41 more across all competitions.

Even this season, he has managed to put up some impressive numbers on the board – averaging 1.9 shots, 1.9 key passes, 1.3 dribbles, 0.7 crosses and 0.8 long balls per ninety minutes in the German top flight. While the 23-year-old is primarily a right-winger, his versatility allows him to play anywhere across the front line in the hour of need.

Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s premature departure, Manchester United are in dire need of reinforcements in the attacking department – and Moussa Diaby fits the bill perfectly. Aged 23, he has plenty of experience under his belt and his arrival would ensure healthy competition within the team. Hence, the board should go all out for his signature in the upcoming transfer window.
