Having all gone so well for Red Devils fans up until the Arsenal defeat on Sunday afternoon, everyone connected with Manchester United now has the current international break to stew on where it all went wrong against the Gunners.
Blown away in the first twenty minutes by Arsene Wenger’s side, Louis van Gaal’s United team just couldn’t respond to the wave after wave of Gunners attacks with Petr Cech in inspired form also.
Prior to that however, United were steadily building momentum and on the face of it, perhaps the Red Devils are in with a realistic shout of lifting the Premier League title this season with the race wide open right now.
A lot of the positivity has centred around Anthony Martial who has started his Red Devils career in the best way possible scoring four goals in quick succession but elsewhere around the team, others such as Wayne Rooney do need to be contributing more.
Having splashed the cash in the transfer market in the summer, if United are within touching distance or indeed at the top of the table come January, you can imagine that van Gaal would capitalise upon this by striving to sign those extra one or two reinforcements to get the Red Devils over the line come May time.
One player linked intensely with a United switch of late has been Southampton’s Sadio Mane who was again at his best in an eye-catching goalscoring performance against Chelsea last weekend.
With the Senegalese attacker linked with an Old Trafford switch right now, we’ve devised a list of five more players who could end up following him to United in January.
