Manchester United are willing to sell their star striker this summer as Erik ten Hag looks for a long-term replacement upfront.

The Red Devils signed Dutch striker Wout Weghorst in January on loan until the end of the season from Burnley to plug the gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial departure.

However, it’s unlikely that the move will be made permanent with the club wanting to sign a longer-term replacement ready for next season.

This had led to reports that United will be willing to let go of French forward Anthony Martial at the end of the season who joined back in 2015 as the world’s most expensive teenager at the time for £58m.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Martial along with captain Harry Maguire and full-back Alex Telles have been listed for sale by the club.

The Frenchman has scored six goals this season but hasn’t completed a full game and isn’t fancied by Ten Hag to lead United’s line in the future.

United have identified four replacements

If they manage to sell Marital then they could use the cash to help fund a replacement, and it appears Ten Hag has identified four potential options.

He has stressed that a new goalscorer is a priority and United are interested in Tottenham talisman Harry Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osmihen.

Ten Hag also likes the look of Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos and Mohammed Kudus, who he knows from his time at Ajax.

Kane is the obvious one as he’s Premier League proven and with his contract running out in 2024 he would be an attractive option.

The 29-year-old recently broke Spurs’ all-time goalscoring record so could leave at the end of the season on a high and in a search for trophies.

Osmihen has been tearing it up in Serie A this season scoring an incredible 16 goals in 17 league appearances.

Ramos announced himself as a future star by scoring a hat-trick at the World Cup in Qatar so would be an exciting choice.

Kudus is less proven at the top level but he does have the advantage of having worked with Ten Hag before.

All could potentially turn United into serious title contenders and it may come down to who Ten Hag prefers or who is easiest to acquire.
