Manchester United should target some of Europe’s best strikers to fill the central role in their front three, according to Mark Hughes. Manchester United should target Harry Kane or Erling Haaland to fill their central striking berth, according to Mark Hughes.
United has scored 53 goals in the Premier League this season, but they have struggled to break down some of the league’s best defenses. And he thinks Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Haaland are the types of players Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should target.
“I’ve seen a lot of United, and they have a lot of talent at the top of the field. Rashford and Greenwood are both highly regarded “he said to Sky Sports
“In my opinion, they wanted Cavani five years ago when he was at his peak; they got him at the wrong time. He’s still one of the best centers forwards in the league. I just think he gives them a little more emphasis when I see him on this squad. Things happen around him because he gives them the courage to play it into his feet. They [Martial, Rashford, and Greenwood] all want to play in some position other than central midfield. Martial prefers to be on the left, although Rashford prefers to be on the center. Greenwood favors the right side of the lane.
They’ve all been put through their paces, but you get the feeling that none of them wants to be there. As a result, they’ll need to find someone capable of playing down the center and providing them with that emphasis.”
“They’re the type of player they need to be in the market for,” Hughes said when asked if Kane or Haaland were the response to United’s problem in that position.
