5 Man United January transfer rumours that can definitely be ruled out

Ricardo Rodriguez


As we all know by now, Manchester United failed to add to their defence beyond the capture of Matteo Darmian and the summer with swoops for Nicolas Otamendi and Sergio Ramos going nowhere.

A high-profile defender linked with an Old Trafford switch right now is Wolfsburg’s Swiss international Ricardo Rodriguez who is a left back by trade but can perform at centre back like Marcos Rojo.

With Luke Shaw out for the rest of the season, Ashley Young and Daley Blind makeweights at left back and Rojo looking outcast, a move for Rodriguez makes sense but we can’t see United sanctioning the reported £30 million asking fee for him.

Yes, Manchester United paid an overinflated fee for Anthony Martial in the summer but we think with Shaw still the long-term left back at United for years to come, will the Red Devils really spend so much on somebody who would be direct competition?
