The Manchester United manager is in the market for a new striker. He wants to sign a new striker and Muriqi is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Kosovo international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.

According to Tribalfootball, “Kosovo striker Vedat Muriqi is interesting Manchester United. The Daily Express says United had scouts checking out Muriqi when he netted against England at Wembley on Tuesday night. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his front line when the winter transfer window opens in the New Year. Solskjaer despite his best efforts wasn’t able to replace Romelu Lukaku who moved to Inter Milan before the summer transfer window closed last month. Muriqi only moved to struggling Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the summer in a bargain £3.1 million but he started the season in impressive form. He has scored twice in the opening three Super Lig games and Fenerbahce are being tempted to cash in by making a massive quick profit.”


If Manchester United are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.

Undoubtedly Muriqi would be a fantastic recruit for Manchester United.

How strong that interest is and whether Manchester United will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
