Manchester United: Red Devils make Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting contact

Manchester United: Red Devils make Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting contact - Manchester United News

Manchester United have made an enquiry for Bayern Munch forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, according to Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg.

The Lowdown: Choupo-Moting at Bayern

Previously of Stoke City, Choupo-Moting has been on the books with the Bundesliga champions since 2020. The 33-year-old has made 72 appearances for the German giants, scoring 28 goals and registering nine assists.

The Cameroon international, who could be at the World Cup later this month, has been in fine form in recent weeks, contributing to seven Bundesliga goals in his last four appearances.

He has been hailed as a ‘great striker’ by Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann, and it looks as if Old Trafford chiefs are keen on Choupo-Moting’s services.

The Latest: Man United interested in Choupo-Moting

Plettenberg took to Twitter on Monday evening to provide an update on Choupo-Moting and United. He revealed that the Red Devils have made an enquiry over a winter move for the Cameroonian as they seek out replacements for Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Plettenberg added that Choupo-Moting ‘will stay’ in Munich, with talks over a new Bayern deal set to take place after the World Cup.

The Verdict: One to watch?

Until a new deal is officially signed at Bayern, United may still attempt to bring the forward back to the Premier League.

Choupo-Moting’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning that the Red Devils could be able to discuss a possible pre-contract agreement in January.

However, should Ronaldo leave in the New Year, as has been speculated, then you’d expect that Erik ten Hag will need a replacement straight away, so this link to Choupo-Moting could be one to watch.
