Manchester United open talks with Bayern Munich over six-month loan deal for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

Manchester United are in talks with Bayern Munich over a loan move for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting until the end of the season, according to Les Bons Conceil Du Sports editor Seb Ecrivain Foot.

The Red Devils are not expected to complete permanent deals this month due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) constraints, and they are now scouring the loan market for quality recruitment.

They have been keeping tabs on the situation of Choupo-Moting for some weeks now and are expected to firm up their interest with an offer.

The deal is expected to go through, and talks are progressing as Man United are desperate to bolster their attacking ranks.

Choupo-Moting has been out of favour at Bayern since Harry Kane joined them in the summer, which has seen him start just four of the 20 appearances he has made this season.

The 34-year-old has weighed in with three goals this term after bagging ten league goals in 19 league games last season.

He is not the long-term answer to the goalscoring woes at the Old Trafford club, but a short-term deal could benefit both parties.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker has won two Ligue 1 titles and three Bundesliga titles over the last five campaigns, and he could prove to be a good loan signing after ending last season with 17 goals in 30 games across all competitions.

The striker is a decent finisher capable of being a menace to opposing defenders due to his strength, dribbling and ability to hold on to the ball.

While Man United fans may fear he could become another Wout Weghorst, his desperation to prove himself in the Premier League after his Stoke City stint could see Choupo-Moting exceed expectations.
