Manchester United needs a world class striker in the summer. There is no way we can get Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar. Lautaro Martinez is one of the hot prospects in Europe right now and he’s with Inter and Barcelona are among other clubs are interested in the Argentine striker.
However, we could possibly acquire German striker Timo Werner from LB Leipzig. He’s 24-years-old and before the Covid-19 virus hit the world he was the the leading scorer or one of the top scorers in the Bundesliga. Werner is a player that can score different types of goals. He can score with both feet and his head. The German international scores opportunistic goals as well. Obviously virtually all his goals are in the box.
Playing for the German national team is a plus and he represented Germany at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Werner has made 29 appearances for Germany and 118 appearances for RB Leipzig. There isn’t many real quality top class strikers that United can sign in the summer.
He would link up well with Rashford, Martial, Greenwood and Ighalo if United decides to keep him. He should fit right in with the other strikers and the United system. He has good pace and passes the ball well. He keeps possession of the ball when he needs to. I would hope that Werner is the striker that United would sign in the summer.
The German is a fine player that will only get better. Although there would be many other teams competing for his signature, I believe that since Manchester United is the richest football club in the world that does give us an edge over the others.
But I also know that United won’t be persuaded into buying any player that the club thinks is overvalued. So Leipzig would have to offer Werner at an affordable price to United if they want to peak the club’s interest in him. If we can get him it would be a wonderful signing and if we were to sign Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho as well, then we’ll have a fantastic team that would be able to challenge for all the titles next season.
