Manchester United’s miserable start to the season continued last weekend as they were well and truly humbled by Spurs at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils look all at sea at the moment, and preparing for a crucial game at Lancashire rivals Burnley today, manager Jose Mourinho will be well aware that the pressure is one to start getting some results and climbing the Premier League table.
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 valued at a hefty £40m by Transfermarkt.
The former Sampdoria man has become a mainstay of the team in Milan, and with nigh on 100 appearances to his name for the Rossineri, he has become one of the most well respected defenders in Europe.
Unfortunately for United, the likes of Jones, Smalling, and Lindelof just don’t see up to scratch, but signing someone like Romagnoli would go a long way to plugging that leak at the back.
The Italian is a quality operator, and would be exactly the sort of defender who Mourinho would love to welcome to his squad.
United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
