Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting appears to be stirring up covetousness on the island.
Manchester United may want to start talks with him soon.
Munich – does Bayern lose its newly discovered top striker?
According to a report by the usually well-informed portal
, Manchester United want to take the first steps towards a possible transfer of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Born: March 23, 1989 (age 33), Altona, Hamburg
Position: center forward
Club: Bayern Munich
Contract until: 06/30/2023
Manchester United may be interested in Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Rumors of the Red Devils' interest have been around for a while.
Things now seem to be taking on more concrete forms.
Accordingly, the team of coach Erik ten Hag would like to intensify efforts for the Bayern striker.
Choupo-Moting's contract expires next year, from January 1 he can contact other clubs - and vice versa.
The English top club is apparently lurking on it.
Those responsible should plan to be contacted in the new year – with regard to a transfer in winter.
They are looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's shares are up, including internationally.
Choupo-Moting not for sale?
FC Bayern has arguments for a sale
At first glance, it seems relatively unlikely that FC Bayern will let the striker go in winter.
This would put the Munich team under pressure to look for a new striker.
At second glance, there are definitely arguments for a sale.
Negotiations with the 33-year-old are proving difficult and he is reportedly putting complicated conditions on an extension.
His hit rate in recent months speaks for itself, but the question of consistency arises.
Choupo-Moting has never played at this level in his 15-year professional career.
In addition, he is no longer the youngest.
Choupo-Moting is a question of the future for FC Bayern
Among other things, the name Harry Kane haunts the premises on Säbener Straße.
If you commit to signing a star striker, Choupo-Moting would only have a back-up role.
His personal demands are likely to have increased according to his own achievements.

If Manchester United offers a decent amount of money for "Choupo", Hasan Salihamidzic and Co. could start thinking.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann is apparently planning to have Thomas Müller up front anyway.
Disadvantage: In the second half of the season you would have to do without a real striker.
Which only worked moderately in the first half of the season.
