Manchester United are in the market to secure the signing of a ready-made striker and the name of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is one of the names linked with the Red Devils (The Athletic).
The latest reports indicate that the Cameroonian international would be willing to discuss a move to Man Utd.
According to Head of Football for Bild/SportBild, Christian Falk, the former Paris Saint-Germain forward would be ready to talk to agree a move to Man Utd but so far, the Old Trafford club have not moved in with an offer.
The renowned journalist wrote on X:
“There is still no offer from @ManUtd for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting @FCBayern. Club and Player would be ready to Talk. The contract of the striker is running out at the end of the Season. A move for Choupo-Moting to Saudi Arabia in Summer is also a serious option”
The 34-year-old center forward has won league titles in Germany and France and was a key player in Bayern’s Bundesliga triumph last season.
He had an injury-hit campaign and made only 14 starts, still, he managed to find the net 10 times. Moreover, he also scored 4 goals in 5 Champions League starts.
This season, Choupo-Moting has mainly warmed the bench and thus far, he has only started three league games under Thomas Tuchel.
As a result, Cameroon opted to drop the £123,000 a week man from the squad for the African Cup of Nations. So, Man Utd can immediately utilize his services if they move to secure him this month.
In your view, should Man Utd sign Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting?
