Manchester United should move for this impressive Italian defender come January

Manchester United’s good recent form continued this weekend with an excellent away win at an in-form Watford.

The Red Devils look to have put some of their early season form and problems behind them, and two consecutive wins will have done the players and Mourinho, the world of good.

Even though the window has only just closed in England, eyes from some United fans will already be on the January market, and here at the Transfer Tavern, we think that a defender has to be on the agenda for the Old Trafford club.

One man we think they should be looking to sign is AC Milan ace Alessio Romagnoli, who is already showing signs of developing into one of the next great Italian defenders.

Italy are famed for their defenders, with the likes of Baresi, Maldini, and Nesta all donning the AC Milan jersey, and Romagnoli would appear to be on his way to fitting right in with this elite group.

United are going to need ready made quality in order to keep the pressure on rivals City and Liverpool, and signing someone like Romagnoli would go a long way to plugging that leak at the back.

The Italian is a quality defensive player, and would be exactly the sort of signing who Mourinho would love to welcome to his squad during the tricky winter window.

United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
