The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are concerned after falling behind Manchester City in the race for the title.
Manchester United lost to Chelsea and therefore lost even more ground on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side, who are running away at the top of the Premier League table.
Therefore, the Man United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are telling us that they need to bolster their squad in January with one or two quality additions.
According to a recent report by The Mirror, Manchester United have identified Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred as a possible target in the January window.
The report claims that Manchester United will sell Marouane Fellaini to Besiktas for around £8m in the summer, opening up a vacancy in midfield and some funds to find the Belgian international’s replacement.
Jose Mourinho wants to invest that money in Fred, according to The Mirror.
The Brazil international signed a new long term deal with Shakhtar Donetsk last summer and has been one of the best performers for the Ukrainian outfit this season.
Manchester United face competition from a duo of Spanish clubs with Sevilla and Valencia both said to be keen on the 24-year-old, who has six Brazil caps to his name.
