Every top club aims to have a striker that can score 30+ goals a season. It’s the kind of figures that win you the league.
Manchester United have had the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial over the years, but they don’t seem to be that kind of striker who can score that many goals.
Edinson Cavani has hit those figures in the past but is in the twilight of his career, and former Manchester United ace Luke Chadwick is, however, optimistic about Mason Greenwood and believes that he can turn into a 25-30 goal-a-season player, even if next season is likely to be a bit early for him.
“Towards the end of the season he (Greenwood) was in fantastic form, certainly the best he’d played all season,” Chadwick told CaughtOffside.
“He looked to be going to the Euros in fine form. He’s one of the most natural goal-scorers in the squad other than Harry Kane and could’ve given them something different off the bench.
“But it gives him the opportunity to start next season 100% right. I hope he can kick on again, he’s going to be a hugely important player to Manchester United.
“I’m sure they’ll be desperate to sign a Kane or a Haaland if they become available, but Greenwood has shown he’s learning from Edinson Cavani and they’ll have every confidence he can be a major goal-scorer for Man United.
“I think in terms of scoring 25-30 a season, it’s probably coming a bit early for him, but I think another season of working with the likes of Cavani, he can really come to the fore and show what a wonderful talent that he is.”
