Manchester United is looking for a new center-forward, and Muani’s name has been discussed frequently in the media in recent months.
According to Hawkins, the Red Devils are keen on signing the Frenchman, who is also desired by Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
According to the journalist, Frankfurt will demand £88 million to permit the striker’s summer departure.
United is looking for a true goalscoring striker this summer, and Muani, who had a fantastic debut season with Frankfurt, could be the answer.
The Frenchman has been outstanding for the Bundesliga club this season, appearing in 40 games across all competitions and producing 20 goals and 14 assists.
Apart from his involvement in goals, Muani has been effective with his work rate, ability to press opponents, and willingness to engage in duels.
As a result, the 24-year-old has no major flaws in his game, but the key question is whether United will make such a large investment.
Muani has had a terrific debut season in German football, but many Bundesliga players have struggled in the Premier League.
Some of the major players who have failed to live up to expectations include Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz, and United may be hesitant of spending heavily on Muani.
Instead of signing Muani, United might prioritize a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
The England captain has over 200 goals in the English Premier League and has had another outstanding season with 24 league goals.
United made an early approach for Kane, whose contract is set to expire next summer. They may be persuaded to sign him for £100 million rather than pursue a deal for Muani.
