Manchester United continue to be linked with numerous players during the transfer window, with some people no doubt having their own opinions on what players the club should sign.
One person discussing potential transfers for United is Premier League striker Glenn Murray, and he has specifically been talking about possible additions in attack.
Speaking on talkSPORT Breakfast, the Brighton forward and Red Devils fan said: “I think Martial is definitely good enough to be part of that front three. I don’t really think Solskjaer wants somebody to lead the line; I think he wants a more interchangeable three that when the play breaks down the three strikers he picks are comfortable anywhere.
“Saying that, I do think that with Martial and Rashford at either side, a pure goalscorer in the middle would benefit Manchester United massively.
“Someone that springs to mind who I think would thrive in this team is someone like Van Nistelrooy. If you’re talking about bringing someone into Manchester United to do that, to score the goals and take the pressure off that three, I would say someone like Jimenez. Or, a curveball, Luis Suarez from Barcelona.”
Suarez is definitely a curveball option, especially with his affiliation to arch-rivals Liverpool, but even at the age of 33 he is a quality striker and it could definitely add some much-need strength that United are lacking upfront.
The scale of his ability is evident in his goal tally across his whole career, as he has managed 406 goals and 231 assists in 612 appearances, per Transfermarkt. He doesn’t seem to be on the wane too soon, either, as he scored 21 times and assisted 12 goals in 36 appearances last season.
This highlights that he could be a great addition to the United squad and may add strong competition in attack for the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
Obviously his past at Liverpool might not go down well with supporters of the Manchester club, but if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to strengthen his attack, then Suarez, who won the Premier League Golden Boot in 2013/14, could be an ideal signing.
