Manchester United Targeting Loan Deal for Additional Forward Ahead of Transfer Deadline

Israel Oluwaseg Lawal
Manchester United are looking to bring in one more forward option to bolster their squad.

Manchester United is reportedly in the market for another forward on loan before the transfer window closes on Tuesday night, according to The Daily Mail . The Red Devils have already strengthened their squad this month with the loan signings of Jack Butland and Wout Weghorst from Crystal Palace and Burnley respectively.

Weghorst has led the line in the last two games without finding the back of the net, and it seems that United are now looking to bring in another forward on loan for a small fee.

The club’s search for a forward comes as Anthony Elanga and Facundo Pellistri have been linked with loan departures, with their situations expected to be evaluated based on any new signing.

The injury struggles of star forward Anthony Martial have been well-documented this season, with the Frenchman currently sidelined with a leg issue, and no exact date set for his return. Manager Erik ten Hag has expressed disappointment over Martial’s absence, acknowledging that the €15 million-rated star is “really important” for the club.

With just six days left until the transfer window closes, the question remains whether Manchester United will be able to find a suitable solution to bolster their forward line.
