Manchester City may be 8 points clear at the top of the table, but the Premier League title race is far from over. We haven’t even reached the halfway mark of the season, and there are a lot of points to be played for. For City’s closest rivals Manchester United to keep up with them, they must reinforce their current squad depth which is key to title challenges, and despite spending £147.96million (via TransferMarkt) in the summer, Manchester United are still in need of new players in January.
Here are 5 potential reinforcements for Manchester United in January.
The former Stoke man is a powerful box-to-box midfielder that can drift past players with ease. He’s powerful, skilful, good at creating chances and strong in winning 50-50 duels. The Frenchman spends his time in La Liga blitzing his way through midfield as he’s the one who initiates Sevilla’s counter-attacks.
At Manchester United, N’Zonzi would strengthen Mourinho’s midfield options. He can play in the B2B role, CM role or as a holding midfielder. His versatility gives José Mourinho a plethora of options, allowing him to be a vital asset in the run in for the title.
