Manchester United have to go all out to sign this experienced central defender to solve back four woes

Manchester United continued their fine form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last weekend with an excellent win over Spurs at Wembley.

The Red Devils are looking like they are creeping back to their best and a place in the top four is beginning to look increasingly likely if they can continue in this vein.

The January period is going to be a big one for the club though, with a few new signings still needed and the problem of their back four still looking vulnerable is something of a worry for many concerned with the club.

However, we feel that United could resolve their defensive issues with a few quality additions, and on man we feel they should move for either now or in the summer is experienced Atletico Madrid centre back Diego Godin.

The experienced Uruguayan is out of contract this summer, meaning a move might well be on the cards for 32-year-old, who has proven himself in recent years to be one of the finest defenders in the European game.

Godin, although heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan amid talks of a deal being agreed, would be a superb signing for United, and if Inter do sign him, you can’t help but feel United will have missed a trick.

The big defender has been the mainstay of the team under Diego Simeone and will go down as a club legend for Los Rojos Blancos. He would be perfect in the Premier League, and United fans will hope they can step up and pip the Milan giants to the signing of Godin.

United fans, what do you think? Is Godin the sort of defender you need? Let us know in the comments!
