With the transfer window hotting up, Manchester United’s search for a new forward continues. 

The Red Devils lost Cristiano Ronaldo back in November and haven’t yet signed a permanent replacement for the Portugal international, Despite Wout Weghorst joining on loan from Burnley in January.

The Dutchman has now returned to his parent club, and United have been linked with a number of attackers in recent weeks, including Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.

Now, though, it appears that United are launching a bid to sign a Bundesliga striker.

According to Football Insider, the Manchester outfit have made contact with Eintracht Frankfurt over a move for Randal Kolo Muani.

The Frenchman was in fine form for the German side last term, scoring 23 goals in 46 matches across all competitions.

It is claimed that United have been considering a move for Kolo Muani for some time, and have now contacted their German counterparts to assess whether or not a move could be possible.

Despite their interest, it is claimed that Kolo Muani’s potential price tag could prevent United from sealing a move, in the same way that both Kane and Osimhen could also prove too expensive.

The report claims that the Bundesliga outfit could demand as much as £85 million for the player, despite signing him on a free transfer just 12 months ago.

Kolo Muani, 24, joined Frankfurt from French side Nantes last summer, having netted 23 times in 87 games across all competitions.

The striker was also part of the France squad for the World Cup in Qatar last year, scoring in a semi-final win over Morocco before providing an assist as Les Bleus lost to Argentina in the final.

United could also face competition from some of Europe’s biggest clubs in the race to sign Kolo Muani, with both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich said to be interest in the player.

Kolo Muani’s current contract with Frankfurt is set to run until the summer of 2027, which would put the German club in a commanding position during negotiations.
