Borussia Dortmund are ready to offer their star striker Paco Alcacer to Manchester United and Tottenham amid the ongoing January transfer window. Both United and Spurs have lost their starting strikers Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane respectively, with Rashoford being out for the next six weeks whereas Kane will be out until April due to a ruptured hamstring.
According to 90Min, Paco can be available to Manchester United on loan till the end of the season as the Spain international has dropped in the pecking order at the Westfalenstadion.
The 26-year-old has struggled to convince at the Bundesliga outfit and will find it even harder to get playing time following the marvellous debut of January signing Erling Braut Haaland, who scored a hat-trick in just 20 minutes last weekend against Augsburg.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that the club may be forced into the transfer market to complete some short-term deals especially after Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool.
Solskjaer has dealt with a number of injury problems this season as he was without Anthony Martial in the beginning of the campaign and is now missing Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay in midfield.
However, the Norwegian boss insists he is not desperate for a striker despite Rashford’s recent setback as he claims he has players that are “chomping at the bit”.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho, though, seems open to bringing in a new striker as he doesn’t have a standout replacement for Kane who has been the team’s focal point in attack this season.
However, Mourinho would only entertain the idea if a reasonable deal would be possible or else he would continue to show faith in his current squad.
