‘Not Even The Best Striker For Them Last Year’ ‘This Can’t Be True’ United Fans Perplexed By Links To 15-Goal Bundesliga Target Man

Manchester United have been scouting Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sebastien Haller, according to reports in the English media.

The 24-year-old scored 15 goals in the Bundesliga last season and is being lined up as a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

Haller partnered Luka Jovic up front for the German club and United fans on Twitter are asking why the club didn’t target his strike partner instead:

It is believed United’s interest in Haller is very much dependent on whether Lukaku is sold to Inter Milan.

The Nerazzurri are said to be interested in the Belgian international but may well be put off by the Red Devils’ £80m asking price.

United reportedly had scouts monitoring Haller during Frankfurt’s progress to the Europa League semi-finals.

Whether the forward would be an upgrade on Lukaku, it is debatable. The Frenchman has been linked with Everton and Norwich in the past, as well as West Ham more recently.
