Three strikers to partner Ronaldo at Man United

The future of Cristiano Ronaldo lies in the hands of Erik ten Hag, as the new Manchester United boss will need to evaluate whether the 37-year-old fits into his plans for United next season. 

In his debut column for CaughtOffside, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano stated that the five-time Balon d’Or winner hopes to stay at United but, as mentioned above, only if Erik ten Hag is really sure he can believe in the Portuguese international as a key player to his system.

The transfer journalist continued by saying: “My understanding is also that Cristiano would have no problem accepting the arrival of another striker on the market – Man United will 100% sign a new central striker but this is not linked to the future of Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Man United are set to lose Edison Cavani this summer upon the expiration of his contract, Romano states that Marcus Rashford has been considering his future since February and the future of Anthony Martial is also unclear, therefore, a striker is 100% needed.

If Ronaldo wants to stay in Manchester, ten Hag will find it hard to move him on, as that would be a huge first move to make at his new club. It should be expected that the Portuguese man will play with the Red Devils next season and a strike partner could benefit the 37-year-old.

Ten Hag usually opts for a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 system, but if the Dutchman comes to the conclusion that the United striker could do with a partner, this is Caughtoffside’s top three picks to partner the Man United legend.
