Manchester United could do with another striker right now. Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer the player that he once was. Early on in the campaign, he was being left on the bench for the majority of the time. But now, he has gotten quiet a few chances to start and yet, the Portuguese superstar has not taken them and has only one goal from open play. His overall performances have been disappointing as well, as for the first time in his career, it looks like he is lacking confidence.
Anthony Martial has been impressive when he has been on the pitch, under the management of Erik ten Hag. But the Frenchman has had his injury problems and over the years, he has always had great spurts but has never been able to deliver consistently.
Marcus Rashford can play up front as well, but that is not his best position. Thus, the ideal solution for Manchester United would be to sign another striker and it looks like Tammy Abraham is a player in their sights.
As reported by GIVEMESPORT, Simon Phillips said about the situation:
“I am told that Manchester United are keen on signing Abraham in the summer.”

As most fans would know, Abraham came through the Chelsea academy and was actually part of their first-team picture as well.
He had a decent run of form under the management of Frank Lampard but his form would fade away towards the end of the campaign, and he was replaced by Olivier Giroud. In the second campaign, he just failed to get going.
He has been absolutely superb since leaving Chelsea and joining AS Roma though. According to stats from Transfermarkt, Abraham scored 27 goals in 53 appearances last season across all competitions for AS Roma last season.
He has not been that great in front of goal this season but that does not seem to have put off Manchester United. Now, it remains to be seen if they end up making a move or not.
