The form of Wayne Rooney is up for debate here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The Manchester United captain has failed to find the back of the net in 10 games for his club, although those keen to defend his form point out he had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside during the 0-0 draw with Newcastle yesterday.
With little more than a week of the transfer window remaining, a striker to support the England captain must be seen as a transfer priority for Louis van Gaal, with the Red Devils having managed just two goals in their opening three league matches – one of which was an own goal from Tottenham’s Kyle Walker.
Rooney remains a world class player, but has looked increasingly isolated and unwilling to run in behind defences during the opening weeks of the season.
Here we have identified five strikers United should target this week that could offer Rooney some support in his quest for goals.
