Manchester United are open to signing a forward in the January transfer window to offset the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Manchester Evening News understands Unitedare able to “push the button” to reveal a list of potential options in the mid-season market.
United are planning to supplement director of data science Dominic Jordan with four more data scientists but believe they are in a position to immediately identify attainable targets in January.
In the summer, United contemplated moves for PSV Eindhoven attacker Cody Gakpo and Barcelona outcast Memphis Depay amid protracted discussions to sign their number one attacking target Antony.
Gakpo, 23, scored in the Netherlands’s opening World Cup win over Senegal and is contracted to PSV until 2026, so would be pricier than Depay, who is unwanted by Barcelona.
