According to Fabrizio Romano, Man United may be in for an upfront loan signing during this January’s transfer window—a striker from Bayern Munich named Eric Choupo-Moting is one possibility.
Due to Choupo-Moting’s current lack of playing time and competition in the Bayern squad, Romano said in an interview with The United Stand—as shown in the screen-grabbed posts on X below—that he would be a possibility.
Romano also disclosed that the Red Devils and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner had spoken about a potential short-term stopgap signing. One can imagine that supporters would choose one of those possibilities.
Loan additions to help United get through the second half of the season make sense because they are likely to have limited funds after a busy summer.
Rasmus Hojlund moved to Old Trafford in the summer, but it appears that his youth and inexperience are showing. Choupo-Moting, 34, has experience, so he might be the perfect addition to the front line for a while.
Even while some supporters might be a little concerned about the way he battled in a previous stay in England with Chelsea, Werner might also be helpful because of his Premier League expertise.
