Fulham slap £50 million price tag on Rodrigo Muniz – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United have scored the lowest goals among the top-13 teams in the Premier League this season with only summer signing Rasmus Hojlund managing to breach the 10-goal mark.

Marcus Rashford has struggled to hit the heights of last season with his commitment being questioned every week. Anthony Martial looks set to leave in the summer.

Manager Erik ten Hag never wanted to overburden the young Dane and asked the club for further reinforcements last summer and in January but FFP concerns meant no help was forthcoming.

But with INEOS now onboard, they plan to strengthen up front next summer and the club have been linked with a whole host of strikers across Europe.

Striker hunt

Recently, The Peoples Person relayed that in-form Fulham striker Rodrigo Muniz has “dreams” of playing for the 20-time English league champions in the future.

And Givemesport have now revealed that the Cottagers are aware of growing interest in the Brazilian and have slapped a massive £50 million price tag on him.

The 22-year-old had zero league goals in 2023 but since the Burnley game in February, the former Flamengo man has eight goals and one assist in 10 games. He has scored more goals than any other player in the Premier League since February.

His poor form in the first half of the campaign had seen clubs such as Gremio and Atletico Mineiro consider a cut-price move for the centre-forward.

But Marco Silva kept faith and his striker has repaid that faith and now the Cottagers will not agree to a cheap sale as they have seen what Muniz can offer.

“Manchester United could be in the market for a new striker in the summer transfer window, and Fulham’s Rodrigo Muniz reportedly considers the Red Devils his dream club. If the Manchester club consider a move to sign the Brazilian forward, then the opportunity to secure him for a bargain price has now gone, according to GIVEMESPORT sources.

“Sources have told GMS that Muniz could have departed for a minimal fee a few months ago, with clubs such as Gremio and Atletico Mineiro considering a move.

“His value has risen drastically in the last few months, and sources have confirmed to GMS that Fulham will price him at around £50m if anyone comes knocking during the summer transfer window, with the chance to sign him for a bargain price now gone.”

Value rise

The 6ft 1in striker has kept Carlos Vinicius and Armando Broja out of the first team and if he keeps his form up, a move looks inevitable.

Muniz is not afraid to shoot and is clearly someone who thrives in the penalty box and is in the top two percent among striker for shots taken and in the top seven percent for touches in the opposition’s box (as per Fbref).

A target man is someone United definitely require but spending so much on a striker in the middle of a purple patch could be a risky move.

Maybe if the Fulham striker can prove himself over a period of time, his dream might yet come true. For now, INEOS are better served looking elsewhere.
