MANCHESTER UNITED has come up with a shortlist of four strikers capable of replacing the aging Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan striker is eyed by Barcelona’s lack of money for a January deal.
And follow show, the Red Devils have identified four strikers who can replace Cavani.
The likes of Erling Haaland and Timo Werner of Chelsea’s top caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick are on the January striker favorites list.
LaLiga duo Joao Felix and Alexander Isak are also United options.
Money could be an issue, however, with all four players easily costing upwards of £50m.
The Borussia Dortmund star was brought to Austria a few years ago by Rangnick, the head of RB Salzburg.
Haaland continues to have impressive performances in the league and Champions League, attracting interest from a number of top clubs.

A big breakthrough in Dortmund came and he took his chance.
The striker has scored 74 goals and provided 20 assists in 73 games.
However, Haaland can be relatively cheaper than other options on Express’ list.
21 years old is rumored to have a £68m release clause.
Chelsea’s Werner has been linked with a move to United recently.
The connection with the German came naturally due to Rangnick working with the striker during his time at RB Leipzig.
Werner went on to become one of the most sought after leads in Europe.
Rangnick clearly has a good attacking eye.
But unfortunately for Werner, things didn’t go exactly as planned.
He has been benched this season after contributing to Chelsea’s win at UCL last term.
Atletico Madrid’s Ace Felix made the list.
The Portuguese does not seem to be a match for the La Liga champion.
He has scored only once this season as Atletico narrowly fell out of UCL in the group stage.
However, Atletico are miles behind rivals Real Madrid in their bid to win the Spanish title.
Felix has only scored 20 goals in 88 appearances in Spain.
But it is possible to thrive in a freestyle attacking play like Rangnick’s.
Sweden international Isak is also on the list and possesses a lot of qualities that United can do.
The young striker is agile, strong and able to shoot – all of which are key to Rangnick’s high-intensity system.
Isak has just six goals this season for Real Sociedad.
But a fresh start helps put his season back on track ahead of next year’s World Cup, which he doesn’t know if he will ever play there.
Sweden needs to go through two play-offs to make it up to Qatar.
Isak could also pay a hefty price, with his current contract set to expire in 2026.
