During the time of Rashford’s injury, Man Utd may consider recruiting an additional striker in the form of a loan as an alternative.
Striker Marcus Rashford suffered a back injury during a match against Wolves on January 15. Henry Winter writer of The Times recently revealed information that striker born in 1997 may need up to 3 months to treat and recover from injury. Not stopping there, this player also had surgery to lift the bone in his ankle.
During this time, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to borrow a striker as a solution during Rashford’s absence. Here are the potential candidates for “Red Devils” attack in the future.
Edinson Cavani (PSG)
The arrival of Mauro Icardi has deprived Cavani’s starting spot. The Uruguayan striker has asked BLG PSG to create conditions for him to leave as soon as possible. However, the home team Parc des Princes preferred the offer to buy Cavani rather than let him go in the form of his wife. To get the signature of the former Napoli star, MU will have to compete fiercely with two heavy rivals Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.
Olivier Giroud (Chelsea)
At Stamford Bridge today, Giroud is only Frank Lampard’s third choice for the striker position, after Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi. The reigning World Cup champion is also tired of being constantly benched and wants to leave right away during the winter transfer window. The only obstacle now is that Lampard is still considering whether to sell players to competitors directly in the top 4 in the Premier League this season.
Fernando Llorente (Napoli)
With a long experience in the Premier League, Llorente certainly will not need much time to adapt when returning to England. The Spaniard left Tottenham in the summer of 2019 after his contract expired, but was contacted by coach Jose Mourinho to return to London due to Harry Kane’s long-term injury.
Krysztof Piatek (AC Milan)
Joining Milan with high expectations, but Piatek is seriously threatened position after the appearance of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The form is worse than last season but the 24-year-old still possesses the qualities of the top goalscorer. Tottenham and Newcastle are also contacting the hope of signing a striker with the nickname “silver continent” in the shortest time.
