Randal Kolo Muani, the Eintracht Frankfurt striker, has caught the attention of Manchester United and Liverpool with his impressive performances this season. The 24-year-old Frenchman played a key role in France’s 4-0 victory over the Netherlands last week, despite not scoring himself. Kylian Mbappe has praised Muani’s qualities, describing him as a ‘complete’ striker who offers different options to the team. Muani will have another opportunity to impress when France play Republic of Ireland on Monday night.
L’Equipe reported last month that both United and Liverpool are interested in signing Muani this summer, with the player himself keen on a move to the Premier League. However, Frankfurt are reportedly looking for a fee of around £89m for the striker, which would make him one of the most expensive signings in Premier League history.
United are considering a number of strikers ahead of the summer transfer window, including Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen and Goncalo Ramos. Tottenham have informed United that it will take an offer of £100m to sign Kane this summer, despite the striker having just one year left on his contract. Napoli are reportedly under no pressure to sell Osimhen and will not listen to offers for less than €150m.
Meanwhile, Muani remains focused on his club performances and is leaving any potential transfer negotiations to his representatives. He said, ‘We talk about it a lot already, but I try to be focused on my club. We continue our performances and we will see this summer. Afterwards, I always dreamed of playing in big clubs.’
It remains to be seen whether United or Liverpool will be willing to meet Frankfurt’s asking price for Muani, but his performances this season suggest he could be a valuable addition to either team.
