Vincent Aboubakar to Manchester United : Manchester United have reportedly reached an agreement with Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr to sign striker Vincent Aboubakar on loan.
The Red Devils are in the market for a new centre-forward after terminating Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract at the end of last month, with the 37-year-old having since linked up with Aboubakar at Al-Nassr.
Aboubakar, formerly of Porto and Besiktas, has spent the last 18 months with Al-Nassr and has scored 13 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions, including four strikes in 12 games so far this season.
The 30-year-old recently captained Cameroon at the 2022 World Cup and scored a memorable goal in a surprise 1-0 group-stage win over Brazil.
A recent report claims that Man United have been ‘alerted’ by Aboubakar’s availability, with Al-Nassr prepared to let the experienced striker leave on loan.
Al-Nassr have exceeded the limit for non-Saudi Arabian players in their first-team squad following the arrival of Ronaldo and they cannot register the Portuguese legend until one of their remaining seven foreign players leaves the club.
According to Saudi Arabian news outlet OKAZ, the Red Devils and Turkish giants Fenerbahce have an agreement in place to take Aboubakar on loan, with the striker expected to favour a move to the Premier League.
