Fans’ view: Which striker would you sign for Manchester United?

by Tanveer Arayan

Following the departure of Robin van Persie this summer, Manchester United have been left with just Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and James Wilson as their only recognised strikers.

Hernandez also looks likely to leave Old Trafford for Sevilla, so Louis van Gaal will be desperately short of attacking options if he does not enter the transfer market for a striker by the time the new Premier League season starts in August.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Man United, as has Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke.

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on who United should be looking to bring in:

The subject certainly divides opinion and there doesn’t seem to be a clear frontrunner when it comes to who fans would prefer.

United have a history of world-class strikers and they will be looking for the very best this summer. Rooney will undoubtedly need some help now that the club are back in the Champions League whereas Wilson is relatively unproven at the highest level.
