Manchester United fans are starting to giddy with RB Leipzig striker Christopher Nkunku.
The Frenchman has been in incredible form for RB Leipzig this season.
On Thursday night, his two goals against Atalanta secured the German side’s place in the Europa League semi-finals by winning the second leg 2-0.
Nkunku’s total for the season now stands at 30 goals which has led to him being linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.
Reports from Germany have long suggested caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick is a huge admirer of the Leipzig star. This means he could easily offer him as a suggestion to new manager Erik ten Hag.
Here’s what United fans said on Twitter after watching Nkunku claim a brace against Atalanta:
Christopher Nkunku would be the perfect signing for Erik Ten Haag at @ManUtd

Bring Nkunku to Old Trafford #mufc

You watch Nkunku’s ridiculous production this season and you can fully understand why Rangnick was taken aback by the fact that #MUFC didn’t have it on their list. Not even a striker, but he has 43 goals in 45 games this season. Madness. It’ll cost a pretty penny for sure.

🔴 Christophe Nkunku.
Yes, I want Man Utd to catch him!
Multifunctional front. Can play wide, central and above all can travel with the ball.
Just scored two for Leipzig tonight after winning the POTM award.
