The Red Devils have been linked with a move for a host of Europe’s top strikers following Netherlands international Robin van Persie’s £4.7m switch to Turkish side Fenerbahce earlier this month and Radamel Falcao’s exit.
It’s not the striker that the media has written

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke is one name that has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, although Liverpool have reportedly made a £32.5m bid, whilst Edinson Cavani is reportedly another United target.
But Van Gaal, who has signed four players in the summer transfer window so far, was tight-lipped on any potential targets despite confirming that a striker is top of his list.
“He’s in the process, but you have to wait and see,” Van Gaal told a news conference on Monday.
“It’s not the striker that the media has written. The transfer period is open until 31 August or 2 September.”
The Dutchman recently revealed that Javier Hernandez may have a future at Old Trafford despite spending last season on loan at Real Madrid.
The Red Devils start their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
