THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ten Hag has admitted Manchester United need to sign a striker in the summer, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and loanee Wout Weghorst his only options currently. Tottenham's Harry Kane has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford and appears facing an uncertain future at Spurs, with his current contract set to expire in 2024.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Bayern have previously been described as Kolo Muani's "dream" club, although there's no guarantee he will move this summer. Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krosche has already hinted the forward could stay. "Basically, we have no intention of giving up Randal after only one year with us this summer," he told Sport1. "Another season with us would do him good.”
