Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano shares transfer update

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano shares transfer update -Manchester United News

Manchester United are ‘already exploring the market’ over a new striker following Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit, Fabrizio Romano reports.

The Lowdown: Exit confirmed

Ronaldo’s departure was officially confirmed by the Red Devils on Tuesday evening less than a week on from his uncensored interview with Piers Morgan.

The 37-year-old, who is currently at the World Cup with Portugal, is now a free agent after the player and club mutually agreed to go their separate ways.

The Latest: Romano’s update

Romano took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to share a transfer update following Ronaldo’s exit, saying that United will save around £17m as a result.

The transfer expert said that the club’s transfer plans have changed as they ‘are now already exploring the market to find a solution in January’ instead of the summer.

Romano explained (via Twitter):

“Manchester United will save around £17m as Cristiano Ronaldo agreed not to receive any pay off. #MUFC

Plan was to invest on new striker in July but Man Utd are now already exploring the market to find a solution in January.”

The Verdict: Good move

It is good to see that United officials acted swiftly when it came to Ronaldo’s future, and looking at a January addition also appears to be the right call.

First up in this Man United World Cup quiz, how many United players are in England’s squad for Qatar 2022?

Erik ten Hag has just Anthony Martial as his only recognised centre-forward, although Marcus Rashford can also come in from out wide if required.

However, signing a replacement for Ronaldo in the New Year will definitely help, with the club still in four competitions when domestic action returns following the World Cup break.
