SHOCKING MOVE: Manchester United determined to agree deal for Ligue 1 forward valued at €15m


Manchester United have reportedly approached the Ligue 1 club Reims over a summer transfer of striker Hugo Ekitike.

Ralf Rangnick’s side are not alone in their interest however with Hugo also a target for Arsenal. The Londoners are set to lose Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette this summer when agreements expire.

Wholesale changes are expected at Old Trafford this summer with interim manager Ralf Rangnick suggesting his side need to land two ‘modern’ strikers.

37-year-old living legend Cristiano Ronaldo has been the 20-time English champions’ only dependable option in attack this year.

‘Cristiano isn’t a central striker or does not want to play in that position. It’s obvious the club needs at least two new strikers who give this team more quality and more options. I wouldn’t even call it wingers,’ Ralf said.

‘Two strikers and modern strikers, that do not necessarily have to be wingers. If you look into international football, there aren’t many top teams who still play with two strikers. Most play with either three strikers or a false nine.’
