After the Brentford disaster losing 4-0 and with a defense fail in their previous game, Manchester United is looking for a new player to beef up its chances.
This incident is also the first time that Manchester United had lost its opening two games since 1992. Furthermore, this is the first time since 1960 when they took six goals in their net in the first two games.
On top of that, Manchester United has scored only one goal, courtesy of the Brighton player Alexis Mac Allister who scored an own goal in the match against. If this explains why they have only scored one goal so far, it also shows how poor the team’s performance is.
Now, there have been talks of United wanting to take Mauro Icardis from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
According to a sports site, PSG manager Christophe Galtier mentioned that Mauro is free to leave their team. The 29-year-old footballer has been left out of his team’s roster for the first two Ligue 1 games this year.
Gatlier said ‘His absence last weekend was linked to a purely sporting choice.’ He then added ‘I saw Mauro at the beginning of the week to tell him that I will restrict the group and I don’t want to work with 25 outfield players, it’s not possible to have players on the sides, I won’t repeat myself.’
Mauro built an impressive background during his stay at PSG, scoring 38 goals in 92 matches in the last few years. He further scored 124 goals while playing at Inter for the last six years. Playing for some of the best teams in Europe, he is the current focus of other football clubs’ interest.
Otherwise a good player, his current team is looking at him as a surplus player and wouldn’t mind letting him go.
‘Mauro has had very little playing time in the last few seasons, I think it is important for him to get back on track. I think it is important for him to get back into the game,’ said Gatlier.
The club is now helping Mauro look for the best solution possible for him with regards to moving towards greener pastures.
Mauro Icardi wasn’t the first player Manchester United opted for, as last week they were in talks with Marko Arnautovic of Bologna. The deal fell out after failing to reach an agreement with regards to the transfer fee.
The recent problems faced by Erik ten Hag’s team where they shipped six goals in the last two matches is a major issue. Hence, Manchester United is now anxiously looking for a new front man to help with their current predicaments.
