6 Strikers Who Could Replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic Should He Leave Manchester United This Summer

Despite Jose Mourinho repeatedly expressing his desire for the striker to extend his stay at Old Trafford, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has yet to confirm whether he'll remain at the club next season. It's been reported that LA Galaxy are set to offer the Swedish striker a lucrative deal in the summer, and with this in mind, here's a chance to take a look at who Manchester United can bring in to replace Zlatan. It's pretty clear that Atlético Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann is number one on Jose...

Romelu Lukaku

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku is definitely a potential option for Jose Mourinho.


Lukaku has recently turned down a new contract at Everton stating that he wants to play in the Champions League and be remembered for winning trophies.


The Belgian is currently the top goalscorer in the Premier League with 21 goals and with the striker set to turn 24 in May, there's still a lot of time for him to become the complete player.

Álvaro Morata

Reports in Spain have suggested all season long that Álvaro Morata has been disgruntled with the amount of minutes he has been given at Real Madrid.


Real manager Zinedine Zidane seems to put more faith in Karim Benzema, which has seen Morata spend more time on the bench than on the football pitch.


When called upon, Morata has impressed scoring 15 goals in all competitions this season with eight of them coming in the league.


Morata would be an excellent choice for Man Utd as he has already worked with Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and he also developed a great partnership with Paul Pogba during his spell at Juventus. Chelsea are believed to be in the box seat, though.

Paulo Dybala

Another man who Paul Pogba would love to see at Old Trafford is former Juventus teammate Paulo Dybala.


The two youngsters struck up a great relationship on and off the pitch at Turin as they both played their part in Juventus winning the Scudetto for two consecutive seasons.


The Argentine is enjoying a successful campaign as he has already bagged 14 goals in all competitions and he still has the potential to improve as he is only 23 years old.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane has been linked with Man Utd ever since his fantastic breakthrough season with Spurs in 2014.


The English striker would be a fantastic fit for a Jose Mourinho team as he is comfortable playing as the lone striker, and it could also be great news for England in the long term as he would have the chance to play regularly with Marcus Rashford.


He recently extended his contract with Spurs until 2022 but Manchester United have the sufficient funds to lure him away from the capital.

Alexis Sánchez

It couldn't happen again could it?


Would Arsène Wenger make the same mistake again and sell the club's best player to Manchester United for the second time in five years?


The Frenchman's relationship with Alexis Sánchez appears to have soured in recent weeks and it wouldn't be a complete shock should the Chilean want to leave the club if United make a bid in the summer.


Should Wenger decide to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, this might encourage Mourinho to make a move as there is no chance that the Frenchman would do business with the Portuguese because their previous history.

Antoine Griezmann

It's pretty clear that Atlético Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann is number one on Jose Mourinho's summer transfer list.


Griezmann has become one of the best players in Europe over the past three seasons and he has constantly been linked with a move to Manchester since his impressive performances in the European Championships.


The French international has repeatedly expressed his desire to stay in the Spanish capital but his stay depends on the future of current boss Diego Simeone.


Griezmann has a great relationship with Paul Pogba, which could sway his decision and ultimately see the two men play alongside each other next season at Old Trafford.
