Manchester United are planning to make a €120m (£105m) offer for Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani, according to reports in the German media.
The France international has been in excellent form this season, racking up 16 goals and 14 assists in 34 appearances.
However, fans on Twitter are very sceptical about these latest claims, with many believing that Muani is not worth the reported price tag:

I’d rather the club spent that on Osimhen to be honest

It has to be pointed out that Muani joined Frankfurt on a free transfer from Nantes last summer so spending a nine-figure sum on the striker just twelve months later would be a huge gamble.
Frankfurt clearly believe that they can get that sort of fee for the 24-year-old, with Chelsea, Liverpool and other clubs having also scouted the player.
However, while Muani is undoubtedly very talented, and he could well fit the profile that manager Erik ten Hag is looking for in a new number nine, there are less riskier options such as Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
