Manchester United are reportedly determined to land the signature of Timo Werner but they could be prepared to wait until the end of the campaign.

The Germany international's future was constantly speculated during the summer before he penned a fresh four-year contract with RB Leipzig.

Still, there has been gossip surrounding his situation at the Bundesliga side and The Express claims that United may consider a future swoop for his services.

It is added that the Mancunian giants may not succeed in a mid-season deal for the Leipzig ace and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to remain patient until next summer to land his signature.

The Red Devils have found themselves short in the striking department after the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez (loan) over the summer.

Marcus Rashford has handled most of the burden this campaign with Anthony Martial absent for around seven weeks with a nagging ankle problem.

Martial made his first appearance for the Red Devils since August over the weekend against Liverpool and he could not make any difference during his 12 minutes on the playing field.
