Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have assembled to discuss the latest in their quest for a new forward in January and one man has been central to today’s discussions.
The highly-rated 18-year-old has been scouted by Louis Van Gaal’s side this season as they seek to improve on their forward ranks, with too much pressure upon young Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney struggling to impress this season.
United’s forward woes are well documented by a staggering statistic, with Crystal Palace the only side in the Premier League’s top ten to score less goals than the Red Devils have this season.
Fortunately it hasn’t had too much impact on the title race, with United sat third in the Premier League table; just one point behind league leaders Manchester City.
Fans in the bar are excited by Embolo’s talent but are concerned that another young teenage talent may not be the striker they need right now, believing another forward addition would also be necessary.
United fans, would Embolo be enough to improve your forward line? How many purchases do you need in January? Let us know in the comments below!
