Manchester United spent a fair amount of money last summer bolstering their defensive and attacking options with Harry Maguire and Daniel James, however, as we all know at this point, those signings haven’t particularly worked out well for United considering their performances since the start of the season.
The January transfer window is another chance for United to get things right in terms of transfers, on that note, here’s a look at 3 reasons why Manchester United must splash the cash this month;
3The Top Four
Manchester United have dropped a lot of important points this season against what many would consider ‘weaker opposition’, because of this, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men find themselves sitting outside of the top four, behind Chelsea who look likely to clinch a Champions League spot at the end of the season.
Despite United’s inconsistent performances they are currently just 5 points behind 4th-placed Chelsea, a gap that could be easily closed over the course of a month or two if United stay consistent.
However, for United to truly stay consistent throughout the course of the second half of the season, they need to spend quite a bit of money on some key signings.
Signing a couple of ‘superstar’ players will bolster United’s chances of making it into the top four, hence; Solskjaer would do well to make big money moves before the transfer window comes to a close.
