It feels a bit better to be a Manchester United fan in the Football Transfer Tavern this week after Louis van Gaal’s men finally arrested their winless slump to record a victory over bogey side from the past couple of seasons, Swansea City on Saturday.
Saturday’s 2-1 triumph was nervy and Lukasz Fabianski’s last minute header had Red Devils supporters sweating but getting back to winning ways was the most important thing and in truth, United supporters didn’t mind how it came.
In United’s two last games against both Chelsea and the Swans, we’ve seen the Red Devils play with more vigour and class and all United supporters would’ve been delighted to see Wayne Rooney back on the scoresheet and how with an excellently taken back flicked strike to make if 2-1.
You can also tell that Anthony Martial is improving once again with a fantastically well taken header having proved his contribution against the Welsh side but in truth, he’d been knocking on the door in the previous game against Chelsea.
The Swansea victory is only just the start in United fans’ eyes however with much more needing to be done to re-convince them that there is actually a long-term future for van Gaal at Old Trafford.
In their eyes, despite having splashed multi-millions in the past couple of transfer windows, more recruitments are still required, especially up front and at centre back.
With that in mind, we’ve today devised a list of five players who may well be following Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford this month with Metro having reported that the Everton man will be the subject of a £37 million Red Devils raid this January.
