According to a report from the Daily Mail, Manchester United have made an enquiry over signing Leicester City flop Islam Slimani on loan in the wake of Marcus Rashford’s injury – but these Red Devils supporters aren’t impressed to say the least.
Slimani, who scored just eight Premier League goals in 35 outings for the Foxes (Mail), is currently out on loan at Ligue 1 outfit Monaco where he has seemingly turned his form around with a seven-goal haul in just 11 league starts.
However, despite his resurgence in France, supporters are not convinced that Slimani is the ideal replacement for the injured Rashford. Compared to the Englishman, while even taking into account his lack of goals, Slimani still doesn’t measure up in terms of shots per game (3.1) or pass completion (67.7%) – even despite winning more aerial duels (2.7), as per WhoScored.com. The Algerian, according to SofaScore, has also given the ball away 14.4 times per game on average this season.
As a result, supporters feel that they can definitely pursue much better alternatives – find all of their best comments from Twitter down below.
He’s on loan at Monaco because he was abysmal at Leicester
