Manchester United will be keen to act in the upcoming January transfer window, as they seek to strengthen their squad and close the gap on a Manchester City side who look to be far and away the best side in the league at the moment.
Here in the Tavern, the United fans have been in a sombre mood following their loss to City last weekend, and at the time of writing, were preparing for their home tie with Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
With the winter window due to open in less than a months time, there’s a growing consensus around Man United fans that the club need to add in certain areas, and on area in particular what needs adding to in their opinion is at left back, where Ashley Young has done well, but Luke Shaw continues to struggle to get a place.
One player our landlord thinks could be a superb addition to the squad is current Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam, who has been in a rich vein of form for the Italians this season.
Ghoulam is a player of immense quality and looks more than capable of making the step up to the Premier League for a club like United. His performances down the left hand side have been nothing short of superb, and he’s been chipping in with goals and assists already.
In his mid 20’s, Ghoulam has plenty of time to develop further and could well be the missing link in what has been a problem position for the Red Devils.
United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
