Manchester United were busier than most during the summer transfer window, with Louis van Gaal splashing in excess of £150 million.
The likes of Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao have been brought in to help United get back into the Champions League after last seasons’ nightmare campaign under David Moyes.
Whilst there is a long way to go before all these new additions start gelling, you can’t help but feel there was some mismanagement on the clubs part with their lack of defensive recruits.
Reports suggest van Gaal will look to rectify this in January, with his side currently looking deadly going forward but vulnerable at the back.
With a top four finish of paramount importance given the money spent in the summer, van Gaal is likely to gamble more money on new signings this winter in order to break even.
Here, we have identified five players we think United should look towards this January.
