Man Utd plotting January move for Valencia prolific forward

Manchester United are reportedly planning to make an offer for Valencia attacker Rodrigo after they have been handed huge injury of Marcus Rashford.

The Red Devils head-coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed on Sunday that England international forward is facing at least six weeks on the sidelines due to a stress fracture of the back.

The English forward has been in good form this campaign, founding back of the net 22 times for club and country, and his layoff is expected to force Norwegian head-coach Solskjaer into the winter transfer market.

According to the reports from Spain, Valencia’s centre-forward Rodrigo is one of a number of players being considered by the Red Devils to fill Rashford’s void.

Rodrigo has been capped 21 times by Spain and has found back of the net 27 times in La Liga for Valencia in the last two-and-a-half campaigns.

The report also claimed that Real Madrid summer signing Luka Jovic is another option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though the Red Devils may face competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Meanwhile, Man Utd are also keeping tabs on Lyon centre-forward Moussa Dembele who has been tipped to depart from the club before the end of the January transfer window.
