Looking at Manchester United’s recent poor run of form the transfer window brings a tremendous relief to Louis Van Gaal and Ed Woodward alike as it gives room for some fresher legs to come into the fray and try to launch a bid for the title.
But looking at the current United lineup, it’s quite evident that the midfield and attacking third need some heavy reinforcements as the lads have struggled with creativity and goals so far this season.
Having said that, let’s have a look at the top three players that United must sign this window.
The attacking midfielder is enjoying a fine season. With an average rating of 7.13 so far this season, he’s also quite versatile on the wings having featured 17 times for the Saints bagging 3 goals and chipping in 6 assists along the way.
Mane’s pace and Attacking instinct would definitely fit In quite nicely with United so LVG should make him one of United’s top priorities for this window.
The AC Milan striker has been in impressive form upon his arrival at the San Siro making 15 appearances and scoring 8 goals with one assist while also averaging a rating of 6.87 per game.
He seems to possess the dexterity that United have been lacking in front of goal, and he could as well spark some creativity up front considering his quick thinking and exquisite technique.
It may seem impossible to lure the player away from Milan in mid-season, but at the right price, they’ll get their man.
The 21-year-old highly-rated defender has been the cream of the crop while performing his defensive duties for Everton’s this season.
He has consistently helped the back four to maintain a solid shape, and as we saw in the game against Tottenham, possesses some tricks of his own as he turned Son Heung-min inside out within his own penalty area.
With 18 appearances and just one defensive error so far this season, he might just be the next John Terry and United should try their best to snap him up before someone else does.
