Manchester United target Bayern Munich centre-forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Choupo-Moting at Bayern Munich.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, Manchester United are targeting Bayern Munich centre-forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
The Cameroon international joined Bayern from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in October 2020. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
The centre-forward has managed 13 goal contributions across all competition in the ongoing campaign.
He is considered to be one of the best centre-forwards in Cameroon. The 33-year-old record for Cameroon is also impressive. Choupo-Moting has scored 18 goals in 68 matches for Cameroon at senior level.
The forward’s contract at Bayern Munich is about to expire in 7 months and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with Manchester United showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.
Adding a centre-forward remains Manchester United’s top priority this winter and Ten Hag will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
The Cameroon international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of centre-forward Erik ten Hag wants to target in the winter transfer window.
The former Paris Saint-Germain man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Ten Hag’s side.
According to the report, “Bayern Munich’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is emerging as a surprise target for Manchester United. The Red Devils are eager to add a top striker to their squad in January, as they prepare to make outgoing moves as well. United and their boss Erik ten Hag are ready to part with Cristiano Ronaldo in the winter, even though his contract runs to the end of the season. Per Sky Sport Germany, United are seriously interested in a January deal for Choupo-Moting, who is also out of contract when this season concludes. Bayern may be willing to sell, if United offer a high enough fee, even though Choupo-Moting is in outstanding form at present. For his part, Ronaldo is ready to leave United, especially if he gets an offer from a team still in the Champions League.”
