Christian Falk confirms Bayern Munich striker would be ready to talk with Man Utd

Bayern Munich striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting would be ready to speak with Manchester United over a potential move this month, according to Christian Falk.

The Red Devils are aiming to reinforce their strike force in the ongoing transfer window. They are likely to prioritise a loan deal over a permanent signing due to Financial Fair Play concerns.

Choupo-Moting was recently mentioned as one of the potential targets and Falk has revealed that both Bayern and the striker would be ready to discuss a deal with United.

The Red Devils are yet to make an offer on the table. The reputed journalist reports that a move to Saudi Arabia would be a serious option for Choupo-Moting next summer.

United could pursue loan deal for Choupo-Moting

Erik ten Hag’s side signed Marcel Sabitzer on a short-term loan deal from Bayern Munich last winter. The Austrian had a mixed spell at the club before a season-ending injury.

It appears United could consider a similar route this month. Choupo-Moting is no longer a regular starter for Bayern following their summer acquisition of Harry Kane.

Mathys Tel has been the regular substitute for the Bavarian giants. The former Stoke City man has been restricted to just over 500 minutes across all competitions.

Hence, we won’t be surprised if he pursues a new challenge. United could propose to sign the €134,000-a-week striker on loan until the summer before he moves to Saudi.

The 34-year-old has been a good signing for Bayern on a free transfer. He has netted an impressive tally of 20 goals in all competitions since the start of last season.

The Cameroonian could be seen as an ideal deputy for Rasmus Hojlund at United. He could be used regularly off the bench with his goalscoring presence in the box.

Choupo-Moting is not known for his distribution but can hold-up play and has good finishing skills. His arrival could coincide with Anthony Martial heading for the exit door.

United have decided against renewing Martial’s contract beyond June and the Frenchman could be allowed to part ways on a cut-price deal in the next few weeks.
