Six strikers who can replace Edinson Cavani at Man Utd as he bids to quit club

Manchester United face the prospect of losing Edinson Cavani at the end of the season despite the striker impressing at Old Trafford.

The Uruguayan signed for United last summer and has made a good impact, netting seven times in 25 appearances.

Cavani has brought urgency to United's front line, with his movement and eye for a scrappy goal.

Despite United not thinking they needed a central striker prior to the season's start it has become evident they do now.

But with limited options across Europe Solskjaer and his scouting team have his work cut out.

Star Sport take a look at the strikers United could sign to replace Cavani this summer below.

Erling Haaland

The dream option, of course. Haaland is one of Europe's most sought after strikers with Borussia Dortmund resigned to losing him as soon as this summer.

But Haaland's sensational form has not only seen his transfer fee rocket but his demand increase.

Rivals Manchester City want him, so do Chelsea and so do Real Madrid.

Lautaro Martinez

Romelu Lukaku's strike partner at Inter Milan and is developing into one of Europe's finest strikers.

The 23-year-old has scored 15 goals and set up a further eight in 36 appearances this season.

The Argentine certainly has the credentials but he wouldn't come cheap.

Andre Silva

The Portuguese striker struggled to perform at AC Milan, scoring just 10 times in 41 appearances.

But time in Germany this season has seen the 25-year-old find his feet.

At Eintracht Frankfurt he has netted 20 goals in just 24 games. He could be ready to make a return to the highest level.

Cristiano Ronaldo

A rogue one, for sure. But could Ronaldo finish his career with a fairytale return to Old Trafford?

United certainly won't say no and at 36 a bit-part role may well suit him.

Raul Jimenez

How Wolves have missed him this season.

Raul Jimenez's absence has impacted the club more than any fan would have precited. And United could do with someone like that leading their line.

With the Mexican turning 30 this year he won't be a signing for the long-term – and technically falls outside United's desired age of 23-29 – but he could bridge the gap until Greenwood is ready.

Harry Kane

Should Spurs go another season without a trophy it will be nine first team campaigns without silverware for Harry Kane.

With the England star turning 28 this year, how long can he afford to wait before deciding enough is enough?

Perhaps he won't give up trying at Spurs. But a move to United would no doubt give both a better chance of lifting trophies.

  • Of course, United don't have to buy in the summer. They could instead place their faith in one of their own. Martial had his best scoring season when he led the line consistently last season.

    And while United believe Greenwood to be a centre-forward for the future they could try to accelerate those plans.

    Signing Jadon Sancho and solving that right-wing problem would certainly help take the pressure of Marcus Rashford, Martial and Greenwood.
