Manchester United have ‘agreed a deal’ to sign Vincent Aboubakar from Al Nassr.
The striker shone for Cameroon at the World Cup as he captained his country and scored two goals in three matches.
This comes after Cristiano Ronaldo completed his eye-watering move to the Saudi Arabian side.
The 37-year-old was unveiled earlier this week, but is so far unavailable to make his debut for the club due to Al Nassr already having a full roster of foreign players.
Man United could be about to come to the rescue, though.
According to Saudi outlet OKAZ, Aboubakar’s move to United could pave the way for ex-Red Devils star Ronaldo to be registered to play in the Saudi Pro League.
Should Man United get their man, they’ll be getting a player who, by his own admission, is better than Mohamed Salah.
Discussing the Liverpool star before the 2022 World Cup, he told 90football.fr: “I understand people’s attitudes, he’s one of the best goalscorers in the Premier League.
“It makes sense that when you go on about a player like that, people will talk. But I did say that it was my opinion, my point of view.
“I don’t give a toss if people don’t like it – I’m not impressed by him.
“I can do what he does. I just don’t have the opportunity to play in a big club.”
