BT Sport broadcaster Matt Smith is 'pretty sure' Manchester United will sign a new striker before the close of the transfer window on Tuesday. 

With the Red Devils yet to improve their forward line this summer, Smith took to Twitter to make the suggestion. 

The duo of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao have both departed Old Trafford in recent time, but the club's hierarchy still haven't purchased a new striker.

Club captain Wayne Rooney, of course, has been leading the line so far this season, while the duo of James Wilson and Javier Hernandez will also be hoping to feature on a regular basis this term. 

In fact, the Manchester United chief also has the versatile duo of Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj at his disposal, but it appears that the club could yet act in the transfer window over the coming days. 

In need

As mentioned, despite the departures, Van Gaal still has a number of attacking options available to him, but if the club are serious about overhauling Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League table this season, then they could do with adding a world-class striker to their ranks. 

Of course, the biggest problem for the Manchester United hierarchy, is that it won't be easy to land a top name before Tuesday's deadline. Who is really available for the club to target? One thing's for sure, it's going to be a busy period for all involved at Old Trafford. Ed Woodward and Co. must get it right.
