Manchester United is in search of extra firepower upfront before the current summer transfer window closes.
It was revealed that Anthony Martial, who is currently Erik Ten Hag’s first choice in the number 9 role, picked up a hamstring injury that would keep him off from the upcoming Brighton game.
Apart from bolstering the frontline, Cristiano Ronaldo’s future is up in the air, and a replacement is needed whether the Portuguese leaves or not.
The Red Devils saw Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani leave the Theatre of Dreams this summer without a replacement, leaving Ronaldo as the only center-forward in the team.
Ten Hag is currently keen on more strength upfront ahead of the upcoming busy fixtures. However, as it stands, Manchester United has identified Red Bull Salzburg forward Benjamin Sesko as the right man for the team.
The youngster is one of the most talented prospects in Europe and is seen as an upcoming Erling Haaland.
Manchester United hierarchies have been in love with the youngster for a while now and have decided to make a move for him after his impressive performances against Liverpool in the preseason.
Salzburg was able to beat Liverpool, and Sesko scored the only goal of the game.
Currently, Manchester United is ready to meet Salzburg’s asking price for the youngster, but no official bid has been made.
Having known these, here is how the Red Devils could line up with the youngster upfront.
