MANCHESTER UNITED will have to pay at least £80MILLION to sign Randal Kolo Muani this summer, Eintracht Frankfurt's CEO has confirmed.
The Red Devils will attempt to sign a striker at the end of the season as Erik ten Hag looks to rejuvenate his flagging forward line.
Kolo Muani, 24, who has a contract with Frankfurt until 2027, is one name that has been touted as an option.
He has registered 21 goals and 15 assists in 42 appearances for the German side this season.
And he also impressed for France at the World Cup, scoring in their 2-0 semi-final victory over Morocco.
But the Bundesliga club's chief executive Axel Hallmann has now confirmed they will command a huge fee for the ex-Nantes man – who joined on a free transfer at the beginning of the season.

Speaking to TeamTalk he said: "Kolo Muani? When I look at the international market, I imagine a different number than €90m (£78m) – more than this.
"He has a long-term deal. My absolutely ideal scenario would be that he stays with Eintracht."
Along with the high transfer fee, United will also be competing against the likes of Bayern Munich, Napoli, Barcelona, Newcastle, Atletico Madrid and PSG for Kolo Muani's signature.
And it could mean they are forced to look at alternative options in the market.

Despite the England captain having just one year left on his Tottenham contract, Daniel Levy is set to hold out for more than £100m for the club's record scorer.
That could mean United look instead towards strikers such as Napoli talisman Victor Osimhen and Atalanta's Rasmus Hojlund.
