Manchester United Make Concrete Offer To Land This Bundesliga Striker: Good Option For Ten Hag?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, SportBILD claimed that Manchester United have made a concrete offer to land Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani. It has been claimed that the Red Devils are hoping to acquire the services of the France international in the summer.

Kolo Muani’s Excellent Record In German Football

Kolo Muani is having an impressive campaign at the German club as he has produced a run of productive displays as the focal point of Frankfurt’s frontline. The French sensation has registered 19 goals and 14 assists in 38 appearances for the German club this season on all fronts.

The 24-year-old has given a good account of himself in the final third based on his average of 2.2 shots, 1.2 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. However, he needs to take care of the ball a bit better in the opponent’s half after completing just 66.3% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at Eintracht Frankfurt is set to expire in the summer of 2027. Thus, Manchester United should consider getting a deal done for Kolo Muani in this off-season.

Is Kolo Muani A Good Option For Manchester United?

Kolo Muani has what it takes to engineer a yard of space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target. He has proven himself to be a capable finisher in front of the opponent’s goal and has got the vision to cut open the opponent’s defence with a killer pass in the final third.

The French sensation can also make a few clever runs with the ball but needs to improve his link-up play up top. He mainly functions as a centre-forward but can also play as a wide player on either flank if needed.

We can expect Kolo Muani to add plenty of firepower to Man United‘s attack. He is good enough to offer some healthy competition for Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford in the coming seasons.

Therefore, the Frankfurt star will be a decent option for Erik ten Hag to consider during this summer transfer window. At 24. Kolo Muani has his best years ahead of him which is why the Red Devils should focus on bringing him to England later this year.
