Two weeks into the January transfer window and Manchester United are still yet to make any move to strengthen their squad.
Sitting in sixth place in the Premier League table with even West Ham United in front of them by a point at the moment, Tuesday evening’s 3-3 draw was damaging for Louis van Gaal’s men with Red Devils supporters bemoaning the fact their club couldn’t hold on to prevent Paul Dummett’s late equaliser.
What United fans will take heart from right now is the fact that Wayne Rooney put in another stellar performance against his favourite side in Newcastle United but that said, this United team definitely needs strengthening in a few areas.
In the goalkeeping department, David De Gea and Sergio Romero have that covered but in central defence, there is definitely room for another top quality centre back with Daley Blind – a stop-gap solution – filling in there for most of the season so far.
In midfield, we all know that Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin arrived in the summer but more additions must surely be considered given that Michael Carrick’s days at Old Trafford are running out, not to mention the fact that Marouane Fellaini could be shifted on with few Red Devils fans missing him.
Up top, United definitely need another striker too but as was the case in the summer, viable options look few and far between at the moment and Louis van Gaal will have to carefully monitor the window right up until it closes for an opportunity.
One man surprisingly linked with an Old Trafford switch today has been Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos who is back on the Red Devils’ radar according to the Daily Star.
If a deal could be done for the experienced German international, who else could be following him to the Theatre of Dreams? Here’s five men who could be following close behind.
