Everyone here in the Football Transfer Tavern has been shocked at the start to the season Manchester United have endured. As our landlord stops pulling a pint to clarify, quite frankly it has been abysmal.
Failing to beat the teams around them, dropping points to sides they should be racking up at least three points at the expense of, you name it, they have managed it.
That is without even going into detail about the Manchester derby. There is not enough tequila in the world for United fans to rehash that!
This is not to mention the deadline day debacle where United failed to sign the majority of their summer transfer targets. The Red Devils even resorted to sending impostors into negotiations for Ander Herrera – and that failed too!
Salt has been rubbed into the wounds after the start to the season that Arsenal and Liverpool have enjoyed and even Manchester City and Chelsea are ahead of them to boot. As one of our punters notes, it is hardly like the latter two sides have been at their best either!
With that in mind, we have taken a look at five players United could try and buy this January in order to inject some fresh life and help them in the title race.
