A recent report from The Independent revealed that Manchester United have expressed significant interest in Fulham FC striker Moussa Dembele. The 19-year-old French striker certainly has some comparisons to Man United’s rising star Anthony Martial, from his young age age to his ascent on France’s lineup to his speed and eye for the goal.
Dembele certainly brings a lot to the table, but Man United are – and almost always will be – in “win now” mode and are in a prime position to make a big run right now. Besides, Manchester United already have Martial to develop into their next star striker and might really be better served to pick up an experienced veteran in his prime to become the last piece of a championship puzzle.
With that in mind here is a look at five forwards Man United manager Louis van Gaal should work on pursuing instead of Moussa Dembele.

Reports of a reunion between Ronaldo and Man United have persisted almost since the scoring genius moved to Real Madrid. He’ll be expensive for sure, but Ronaldo is still a bonafide scoring threat and is far more lethal than either Wayne Rooney or Anthony Martial.
