United needs a competent striker

United needs to obtain a striker that can score goals on a regular basis and can do many other things as well. Romelu Lukaku should be sold because he doesn’t always show effort in his game. A few things that he lacks is enthusiasm on the field, he doesn’t make runs into the box on a regular basis and he doesn’t score goals consistently. The big Belgian has 90 appearances and a total 42 goals. Many times he would go without scoring for several matches for United.

Lukaku even had fairly long goal droughts with his former clubs like Everton, West Brom and Chelsea. If we don’t get a quality striker that can score with consistency then it makes it more difficult for us to win more matches in all competitions. The club should keep Rashford, Lingard and Martial because they are future and they can greatly benefit the club. Sanchez is another story, because according to newspaper reports United has allowed Solskjaer the option of possibly selling him this summer.

He has been injured often for long periods ever since he came here in January 2018. Things haven’t worked out for the Chilean striker ever since he arrived here and I’m not sure its going to get better for him. At least the other strikers show some energy many or most of the times when they are near or in the box.

So I think the solution to this problem is to bring in Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan or Paulo Dybala from Juventus. Both Argentinian strikers are surplus to requirements at their clubs. They could also leave for different reasons. For Icardi, he and management at the club have unfriendly relations currently because of some disagreement in the past between them. As for Dybala he isn’t getting much playing time there now especially with the arrival of Ronaldo and the emergence of Moise Kean.

If we get one of these strikers we should have a more dangerous line-up upfront with the group of strikers that we have.

What striker would you like to see come to United?

  1. Dybala would be an awesome signing imo. Would like to see him have a free role with Martial and Rashford running off him.

  2. I would probably go for Icardi but I think his wife loves to attract alot of unnecessary attention which would not be the best for us. With Dybala, I just see him as a big and better upgrade on Mata, I dont see him as an out and out striker or traditional number 9 so we would probably have to push him to the right and just hope that he performs.

    1. Ok, I think that Manchester United should be able to find a way to deal with Icardi’s wife. But with Dybala, he has proven in Serie A that he can score goals as an out and out striker. He has the necessary skill and pace and he’s very good at making runs into the box to score. Unlike Mata who has no pace and isn’t very mobile. Mata is an attacking midfielder that is creative, so you can’t compare him with Dybala who is a striker.

    2. I think that Icardi has said that he’s not leaving after resolving his personal issues with the club’s hierarchy there. He actually wants to stay now. Mata is an attacking midfielder and isn’t a no.9 striker.
