CONFIRMED! – journalist confirms Man Utd ‘open talks’ and are making move to sign £30m “outstanding” Borussia Dortmund star by January

Manchester United have had their fair share of criticism this season, with defeats against Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion particularly disappointing, alongside a disastrous Champions League campaign.

Yet, despite all of that, Erik ten Hag’s side sit fifth and just three points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City, having just defeated Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The January transfer window could help match their results and performances for the better too, with the Red Devils reportedly set to hold a meeting regarding a deal for one particular Bundesliga star.

If the England international is not part of the deal though, the Bundesliga giants will reportedly set a price tag of €30m (£26m).

Manchester United’s Premier League goals tally this season has simply not been good enough.

Ten Hag’s side have netted just 18, which is the lowest total in the top half and only three more than Burnley in 19th.

The potential arrival of Malen could help solve that problem. Malen’s stats show that he is particularly outperforming Marcus Rashford, who is enduring a season to forget in the Premier League.

The longer that his poor form goes on, the more that questions will be asked about whether United need to source their goals from elsewhere
