At the time of writing, Manchester United were embarking on a home fixture with Swansea City to see in the New Year while hopefully finally grabbing three points that are oh so in need to arrest Louis van Gaal’s dramatic slump.
With Red Devils supporters having seen positive signs in United’s last game against Chelsea where the team did everything but score in a 0-0 draw, fans would’ve headed to yesterday’s game with more confidence.
That said, we’ve become used to the Swans being a thorn in United’s side with the Welsh team having previously recorded three consecutive 2-1 victories over the Red Devils prior to yesterday’s head-to-head.
In those games, Bafetimbi Gomis has proved a menace but in the cold light of day, it’s teams like Swansea City that Manchester United should easily have the beating of.
Unfortunately the fear factor has been eradicated at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement and there’s absolutely no doubt that van Gaal needs to further strengthen this Red Devils team to convince the doubters that he still knows what he’s doing.
With the January transfer window officially open as of yesterday, we’re today taking a look at the five most believable Manchester United rumours we’ve heard by the bar so far.
