If Ralf Rangnick fails to deliver on his transfer promise, Manchester United are planning a move for Mauro Icardi.
MANCHESTER UNITED have devised a backup plan in the event that two of their strikers leave in January.
Should two of Manchester United’s forwards leave, the Red Devils are expected to make a move for Mauro Icardi of Paris Saint-Germain.
Ralf Rangnick intends to keep both Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial, who have been linked with moves away from Old Trafford this month.
He faces a crucial month ahead, amid reports that he is dealing with a broken dressing room and a number of disillusioned players.
Should off-field distractions occur, and reinforcements are required in the event of key players departing, January could become even more difficult for Rangnick.
Martial has made it clear that he wants to leave, and there has been speculation that Cavani may follow suit, with Barcelona reportedly attempting to entice him to Spain.
Despite Rangnick’s best efforts to put an end to rumors linking the attacking duo with a move away this month, United have reportedly devised a contingency plan in case the pair force a move through.
Tottenham director Fabio Paratici is in talks with Wolves over a £20 million deal for Adama Traore.
Old Trafford officials, according to L’Equipe, have identified PSG forward Mauro Icardi as a possible replacement if United’s attack is depleted.
While the French outlet claims that the two clubs have had no contact, the Red Devils are said to have prepared a bid as a precaution in the event that their strike situation worsens this month.
United’s interest in Icardi, however, could be short-lived, as Juventus is reportedly looking to sign the Argentine on a loan deal.
Prior to joining PSG in 2019, the 28-year-old scored 124 goals in 219 appearances for Inter Milan, and success with Serie A rivals Juventus could see the Old Lady sign the striker on a permanent basis for £30 million in the summer.

If Rangnick has his way, there will be no need to be concerned about Icardi’s return to the club, as he has previously stated his desire to keep Cavani, while a Martial departure will only happen if a deal makes sense for the club.
