Erik ten Hag will once again be looking to bolster his team; therefore, Manchester United is anticipated to be busy in the January transfer window. The Red Devils' first priority while looking for a striker to replace Cristiano Ronaldo is a striker. The Portuguese has agreed to a record-breaking transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr after leaving Manchester United. It is unclear whether United would make a move for a new forward, although a wide range of players have been mentioned as potential transfers to the team. Here are the most current Old Trafford transfer rumors, with further explanation.

Man United wants Aboubakar

While Ronaldo has left, United could be planning to make a bid for Vincent Aboubakar, who is now a colleague of Ronaldo's at Al Nassr. The 30-year-old Cameroonian's loan transfer might be an option, according to the Daily Mail, as the Red Devils want to strengthen their front line. After Ronaldo joined the team, the former Porto player is expected to drop down the pecking order in Saudi Arabia. He may be headed for a short-term swap, which, if United is restricted to loans during the winter transfer window, might please Ten Hag. With his latest goal-scoring performance, Aboubakar has already given a clear message to Ronaldo ahead of his arrival to Al Nassr. He has also grown competitive with Mohamed Salah of Liverpool.

The Red Devil launch a bid for Dani Olmo

Midfield might be reinforced in January as United allegedly tried to acquire RB Leipzig midfielder Dani Olmo. The Red Devils have reportedly made a bid for the playmaker after losing out to Liverpool for Cody Gakpo, according to reports from football365 and Nacional. However, they are up against competition from Bayern Munich, who are coached by the previous manager of the Spaniard, Julian Nagelsmann, and who are also interested in signing Olmo. It is unknown how much the Red Devils have put on the table or whether Olmo would be interested in a transfer to Old Trafford. The 24-year-Leipzig old's deal has little over a year and a half left on it.

Spurs' interest in Porro of Sporting

Sporting Lisbon's insistence on paying Pedro Porro's £40 million (€45 million) release clause has dimmed Tottenham's early enthusiasm in the player. A deal is still a way off since Spurs want the player but are unwilling to move the discussions further at the terms the Portuguese club is currently offering. This is in spite of claims that it was moving forward over the weekend and sources in Portugal who claim they have been talking about the payment arrangement for this amount. Porro made an impression against Spurs in the Champions League group stage earlier this season, and Antonio Conte has been concerned about the right wing-back position. Conte hasn't decided on a favorite first choice in the position despite having three possibilities there at the moment in Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty, and youngster Djed Spence, who was only bought in the summer. Porro formerly played for Manchester City but never saw action with the main team until joining Sporting in 2020 on loan. Since then, he has made 93 appearances and scored 11 goals for Sporting.

Porro is interested by Tottenham

Bernardo declares once more that he wants to "move to a new project."

Bernardo Silva, a midfielder for Manchester City, has reaffirmed his intention to accept a new opportunity should one present itself. Silva, whose transfer to Barcelona was rumored to happen in the summer, has two years left on his contract.

Vieira: Palace's players need to be more competitive.

Crystal Palace must make changes in the January transfer window, according to Patrick Vieira, if they want to stay competitive in the Premier League. With a 2-0 victory against Bournemouth, his 11th-placed Eagles earned their final three points of 2022. However, they now face a challenging start to the new year, which includes seven straight Premier League games against teams in the top half of the standings, starting on Wednesday with Tottenham. After a lackluster performance in a 3-0 loss to Fulham on Boxing Day, Saturday's triumph was promising, but Vieira is aware that more alternatives are required if the team is to avoid reaching a plateau in the level of competition.
