Manchester United desperately needed a scorer after the abrupt departure of last season’s top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manager Eric ten Haag said that Anthony Martial is not sufficiently prepared to cope with a busy schedule of matches, and that reinforcements will be needed as United will fight on all four fronts.
Due to poor financial conditions and the potential sale of the club by the Glazers, the January window was completely devoted to signing loans.
In the end, the Red Devils loaned Woot Weghorst from Burnley without the possibility of making him permanent in the summer.
The striker has plans for next summer
The club wants to start all over again next summer and not rely on temporary solutions, as has been practiced by the club in recent seasons.
Next summer, some of the best strikers will move to Old Trafford, and one of them is Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are interested in a mega-summer attack on Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

“Erik ten Hag has put the new nine at the top of his summer recruitment plans, and England captain Kane is among the club’s preferred options.”
The England captain is ready to enter the final 12 months of his contract with Spurs, and although the North London team would like him to sign an extension, there is a feeling that this time he may not agree.
“How Tottenham finish the season, in particular whether they qualify for the Champions League, will depend on whether the North London club seduces its talisman striker to resume work,” the report says.
It is known that it is extremely difficult to negotiate with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, and it may turn out to be the same next summer.
Kane is ready to move to United
While the London club knows they could risk losing him for free, Levy is determined to set a minimum price of 85 million pounds for Kane.
And interestingly, this figure will be applicable to other European clubs and Premier League rivals, it will cost more, because Levy does not want to directly strengthen the opponent.
Both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have shown serious interest in Kane in recent weeks.
However, United executives have been informed that Kane is “open to joining United as he aims to break Alan Shearer’s record for the most goals in the Premier League.
Kane has scored 198 goals in the top division, 62 fewer than Alan Shearer.
Other bright options for United include Serie A top scorer Viktor Osimhen and prodigy Benjamin Sesko from RB Salzburg. However, in the person of Kane, Ten Hag will get a player who knows the league and is ready to score from the first minute.
