Charlie Austin To Manchester United Confirmed: Possible Reasons Behind This Transfer

There are some strong reasons behind this transfer. However, we have tried to dig into the reasons and here are some of them.

  1. Manchester United are in need of a set striker. Without having a second striker, Manchester United will fall into trouble for sure.
  2. All the possible transfers have been completed including Pedro since Chelsea snatched him from Manchester United.
  3. For Charlie Austin, Manchester United is better than West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

What do you say?

Money is not enough. Manchester United have got this point. Now, they have very less chance to get any other striker right now before closing the transfer window. Hence, Charlie Austin is probably the only option for them.
