Manchester United are in the market for a new striker and the club’s prime attacking target seems to have made a decision on his future.

Kolo Muani has been in excellent form for Frankfurt this season in the Bundesliga.

According to German outlet Sport1, Kolo Muanii’s preferred destination is Bayern Munich which will represent a huge blow to Manchester United who have maintained a strong interest.
