If Premier League side Manchester United want to seriously challenge for the title next season and the UEFA Champions League, they most certainly need to invest in a prolific striker who will guarantee them goals.

If you look at the stats this year, Manchester United, who are in third place in the league at the time of writing, have scored the second-fewest number of goals (46) from the top nine teams. The only other team to score fewer than the Red Devils are Aston Villa (44), who are currently in 6th place.

In other words, they are definitely in need of a new striker.

Which strikers could Manchester United potentially lure to the club?

Over the past few weeks, there has been much speculation about which new striker(s) Manchester United could potentially lure from other clubs. The player that has been linked with them the most is Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane

If he leaves Spurs at the end of the 2022/23 campaign, there’s a 42.10% implied probability that he will join United. If you look at this in odds, he is currently priced at 11/8 to join. 11/8 in the UK fractional odds format. In American/moneyline odds, 11/8 is the same as saying 138, and in decimal odds, 11/8 is 2.38. 

Where can I play a bet on the remaining Manchester United games?

If you’re looking for a secure online sports betting site where you can place a wager on the remaining Manchester United fixtures, one of the most trusted sites you can turn to with great odds is the official 32Red website.

Who else could move to Manchester United?

Some of the other players that have also been mentioned in recent times are the following:

  • Victor Osimhen from Napoli (9/2, with an 18/20% implied probability rate)

  • Jonathon David from Lille (11/1, with an 8.30% chance)

  • Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus (12/1, with a 7.70% chance)

  • Goncalo Ramos from Benfica (6/1, with a 14.30% chance)

  • Mohammed Kudus from Ajax (7/1, with a 12.50% chance)

Additionally, Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, Lionel Messi from PSG, and Kylian Mbappé (also PSG) could also potentially move to United, and as much as fans would love to see one of these players in a Manchester United shirt, it’s very unlikely any of these players will actually join them. 

Where will United finish in the league at the end of the season?

The chances of them finishing at the top of the league above Manchester City and Arsenal is pretty much out of the question. The odds for this particular market are currently priced at around 500/1, meaning they only have a 0.20% chance of winning the league. 

A much safer bet (but by no means a guaranteed bet) would be to bet on Manchester United to finish in a top-four spot. For this particular market, you’re currently looking at average odds of around 1/14, meaning they have around a 93.30% implied probability rate of achieving this. 

How many games do Manchester United have left to play?

Manchester United still have eight games left to play in the league, and they are also still in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, the latter of which is set to take place on Sunday, April 25th. 

The other remaining fixtures in the league are against Chelsea (postponed, time and date TBD), Spurs away (April 27th), Villa at home (April 30th), and Brighton away (May 4th). 

They also still have to play West Ham away, Wolves at home, and Bournemouth away before they play their last game of the season against Fulham at home on May 28th.
