Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are excited to see who the club will bring to the club now the transfer window is officially open.
Jose Mourinho ended the season without a trophy for the first time as Manchester United manager. The Red Devils finished 19 points behind Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title and also tasted defeat in the FA Cup final against Chelsea. Nevertheless, it was a huge improvement on the season before where they ended the campaign in sixth.
For their improvement to continue, United must be active in the transfer market. The Red Devils are expected to complete a deal for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder, Fred, in the coming days. With Maraoune Fellaini expected to leave and Michael Carrick retiring, midfield reinforcements are needed.
United should make a move for Real Madrid midfielder – Mateo Kovacic. The former Inter Milan man started just ten games in La Liga last season and could be set to depart in search of regular game time. Valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, Old Trafford would be the perfect place to get his career back on track.
Kovacic can be used as a box-to-box midfielder but also excels in a much deeper role, making him the perfect replacement for Carrick. Still only 24-years-old, his best years are ahead of him, but he needs to be starting games to fulfil his potential.
With Luka Modric approaching the end of his career, the Croatian may see game time increase at Bernabeu next season. United must move quickly to bring him to England.
