Manchester United fans make demands after three goalless draws

2 min read

Manchester United supporters have made their summer transfer window wishes clear after three successive goalless draws.

United have looked blunt in attack in recent games, failing to score against Real Sociedad, Chelsea and Crystal Palace.

Edinson Cavani , Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial have not scored in seven games, since Cavani netted the opener in the 3-3 draw against Everton on February 6.

The Uruguayan striker has scored seven goals in 25 appearances this season since joining United on deadline day in October, but is 34 and the club is yet to extend the one-year option in his contract .

Martial has seven goals in 33 appearances this season and has struggled to make a compelling case for the central striker position.

Greenwood recently signed a new long-term contract with the club, but has scored just four goals in 34 appearances across all competitions and looks more comfortable in wide positions.

United are therefore likely to sign a new centre-forward in the summer transfer window to back up Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.

Fans would like to see the club invest in a world-class striker, with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez and Tottenham’s Harry Kane the most popular choices.

Whether any of those players are available remains to be seen, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that United will be in the market for a striker.

Manchester United were held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players were frustrated for the third goalless game in succession, dropping more points to allow Man City to streak away at the Premier League’s summit, on a poor day for the forwards.

“We’re always looking to improve our squad, of course we are,” he said this week.

“I would never ever start to think the way you think about Edinson turning 35 next year because he’s just turned 34. You and I have different mentalities – that’s a completely different way of thinking.

“And I always say with Mason, Anthony and Edinson, when we can really get them firing that means we’re a very good team. But we’re always looking at better players, of course we are.”
