The team that was targeting Harry Kane in the summer transfer market is looking to become that backup.
Britain’s ‘The Sun’ reported on the 3rd (Korean time), “Manchester United is trying to sign Eric Maxim Choupo Moting from Bayern Munich as part of reinforcing strikers in the winter transfer market,” and added, “At the moment, he is joining Harry Kane-Mattis from Bayern Munich. “He is a 3-option striker as Tell’s backup,” the report said.
Manchester United’s 2023-2024 season is gloomy itself. They lost 1-2 against Nottingham Forest in the 20th round of the 2023-2024 Premier League season held at the City Ground in West Bridgford, England on the 31st of last month. Manchester United, who failed to add points, remained in 7th place in the league with 31 points (10 wins, 1 draw, 9 losses). On the other hand, Nottingham ranked 15th with 20 points (5 wins, 5 draws, 10 losses).
After the game, the British BBC broadcast an interview with Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag. Coach Ten Haag said, “The result is clear and disappointing. We were down 0-1 again. We played well, but conceded a goal on a counterattack.”
He said, “We lacked performance in the first half. We lacked energy and we couldn’t get results. I thought we played well in the first half against Aston Villa and conceded a goal from a set piece. We should have achieved something more in the first half of this game.”
“We were better in the second half. In the first half, we needed to create decisive moments, but we couldn’t. We know the result was below our standards,” said coach ten Haag.
He said, “The performance in the first half was not bad. We should have created more in the final third. In the second half, we conceded a goal. Then we tied again and I thought this was our game. We tried to come back, but we conceded right away. “There were chances after that, but they weren’t enough to win,” he said, expressing disappointment.
In fact, Manchester United caught up with last season’s league losses with 9 losses in 20 games. Manchester United has only scored a total of 22 goals through 20 rounds. It ranks 7th overall, but in particular, Anthony, who was brought in for 147.6 billion won, played in 16 games and scored 0 goals. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have only 3 goals each. Manchester United’s top scorer is midfielder Scott McTominay (5 goals).
Manchester United has invested tens of billions of dollars in reinforcing strikers, but the strikers are not playing their part. In particular, in the case of central striker, it is pointed out that it is unreasonable for prospect Rasmund Hoirun to be the starting player. There are no plans for Mason Greenwood to return, so reinforcements to the striker are urgently needed. 토토사이트
However, Manchester United’s funds are not what they used to be. Sir Matt Ratcliffe is pursuing reforms by acquiring a partial stake in the club, but due to FFP rules, it is assessed that a large amount of funds cannot be used in the winter transfer market. Naturally, coach Ten Haag, who has been sluggish despite the change of ownership, plans to remain unshaken for the time being.
Lord Ratcliffe has no intention of sacking manager Ten Haag any time soon. He plans to reorganize the department in charge of sports affairs in order to normalize the club. In the end, as they could not choose to replace the manager, reinforcement in the winter transfer market became essential.
However, due to funding issues, both attackers and defenders are looking at loans instead of transfers. The Sun pointed out, “Manchester United is targeting Munich’s Choupo Moting to reinforce their strikers. Born in 1989, he is the backup to Mathis Tell, Kane’s backup in Munich this season. In short, he is not a starter at a big club.” .
The media said, “Chupo Moting is a recruitment target that is being seriously discussed within Manchester United. There have been no proper negotiations yet, but the Manchester United club believes he will adapt well to the club.” On the other hand, the majority of Manchester United fans say Chupo is not meeting expectations. He analyzed, “I am angry about the rumor about recruiting Pomoting.”
