MANCHESTER UNITED are “seriously considering” a sensational swoop for ex-Stoke City striker Eric Choupo-Moting, reports claim.
French outlet Media Foot say Choupo-Moting has emerged as a shock target for the Red Devils.
United boss Erik ten Hag is said to be a fan of his experience and versatility.
He is out of contract at the end of the campaign, which could allow United to pounce for nothing.
Bayern though are believed to be eager to tie Choupo-Moting down to fresh terms after his stunning start to the campaign.
The Bundesliga outfit are poised to kick off contract discussions with Choupo-Moting in the coming months, according to Fabrizio Romano.
And while his scoring record in recent seasons is nowhere near the level of Ronaldo, Choupo-Moting has been a man reborn this term.
The Cameroonian striker has netted an impressive eight goals in 13 games since the summer, providing a further three assists.
Ronaldo on the other hand has found the net just three times in all competitions this season.
The Portuguese ace continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford after asking to leave the club in the previous transfer window.
Ronaldo sparked a huge row with Ten Hag when heÂ refused to come off the benchÂ against Tottenham last month.
CR7 was banished from first team training, with SunSport exclusively revealing the Dutchman wants Ronaldo out of the club for good.
