Manchester United reportedly making moves for Mohammed Kudus
Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Mohammed Kudus to cushion their forward options.
As they continue their search for a Cristiano Ronaldo replacement this month, Manchester United is reportedly looking into the possibility of signing Ajax forward Mohammed Kudus, per 90 min.
The Dutchman has publicly expressed his desire to sign a new forward this month, but he has been careful to emphasize that if they are to enter the market, they must sign a player who fits the appropriate profile. Due to their time spent together in Amsterdam, where Kudus has been since 2020, Ten Hag also has a strong familiarity with Kudus.
He was also one of the stars of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, having scored twice and provided an assist as Ghana exited the tournament at the group stage.
Transfer activity in the near future is unknown as the Old Trafford club’s financial situation has been questioned recently and United has been put up for sale by the infamous Glazer family.
Given the club’s overall predicament, United prefers to look into cheaper deals this month, though loan-to-buy options are also being considered.

The Red Devils are currently lacking in their striking department following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“United are exploring the prospect of signing Ajax striker Mohammed Kudus in this month’s transfer window,” the report said.
“The Reds are determined to add to their forward options before the end of the month and are being linked with several possible targets. Kudus worked with United manager Erik ten Hag during the latter’s time at Ajax.
“The report claims that United are yet to make an offer for the Ghana international, though talks ‘behind the scenes’ have been held.”
