Manchester United are set to miss out on signing Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer, according to a report from The Daily Express.
Manchester United aren’t the only team that are set to be disappointed – Kolo Muani will also snub a potential move to Liverpool in the summer. Instead, the 24-year-old is expected to pursue a move to Bayern Munich.
United, who are looking to sign a striker in the summer, will see this as a blow to their transfer plans. Nevertheless, they have other avenues they could look at, such as Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen.
Who is Randal Kolo Muani?
Kolo Muani has burst onto the international footballing scene this season with great aplomb. He has established himself as a top-class goalscorer and creator – so far, in 30 Bundesliga games, he has scored 14 goals and has notched up 12 assists.
A powerful runner with the ball, Kolo Muani also has brilliant technical ability to back it up. Additionally, he played for France in the 2022 World Cup, scoring a single goal and setting up another.
Bayern Munich have underperformed somewhat this season. They put forth an uninspiring campaign in the Champions League and have not been as dominant domestically as they usually are. As such, Kolo Muani will come as a welcomed addition to the German giants.
