first_img 3. Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) – Click the right arrow for more targets… – According to the Sunday Express, United have made an enquiry to Atletico Madrid about the Frenchman’s availability. His release clause is an eye-watering £57m but United have the cash in the bank to make this deal possible. With just two days of the transfer window remaining, Atletico will be reluctant to let their star forward leave but a big-money offer could prove too tempting to turn down. 5 Manchester United flattered to deceive in the Premier League yet again on Sunday as they lost 2-1 to Swansea City. Despite taking the lead through Juan Mata, United left the Liberty Stadium with nothing after goals from Andre Ayew and Bafetimbi Gomis condemned them to defeat. Wayne Rooney missed a gilt-edge chance to snatch a draw late on but United once again looked toothless in attack. As the transfer period enters its final hours, talkSPORT take a look at five strikers the Red Devils could buy to solve their goalscoring woes. Who do you think Louis van Gaal should try to sign before the transfer window closes?

Gareth Bale (Real Madrid) – Click the right arrow for more targets… – He might not be an out-and-out striker, but the Welsh wizard would represent the superstar attacking signing United fans are craving. The Sunday Express have reported that Bale could be included in a deal that sees David De Gea go the other way. A deal this summer appears unlikely given Bale’s impressive start to the season with Real Madrid but United have been long-term admirers of the former Tottenham man. 5 4. Charlie Austin (Queens Park Rangers) – Click the right arrow for more targets… – At the start of the summer, United would have set their sights on a more high-profile signing than the QPR man. But desperate times call for desperate measures and Austin’s return of 18 goals in the Premier League last season should not be ignored. West Ham and Crystal Palace have been strongly linked with 26-year-old but have yet to submit a suitable offer to QPR and United may be tempted to capitalise on other clubs’ hesitancy. 5 Could Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani join Manchester United? Click the right arrow for more targets… – He’s no Neymar, but a late swoop for Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani would surely get Man United fans excited. According to the Guardian, United expressed an interest in the Uruguayan striker earlier this summer and after their unconvincing start to the season, the Red Devils could make a late bid for the 28-year-old. 5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain) – The Swede would be open to a move to Old Trafford this summer, according to the Daily Mail and reports suggest the forward is becoming increasingly unsettled with life at Paris Saint-Germain. Despite having a controversial relationship with Louis van Gaal, Ibrahimovic has admitted he could work with the Dutchman again.last_img
