Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are nearing the close of the season disappointed because their title aspirations have failed to come to life. As hard as Jose Mourinho’s side have tried, United or anyone else for that matter were no match to the runaway leaders Manchester City.
Manchester United fans around the globe are determined to make next season one to remember and more importantly, to get one over their biggest rivals. The only way they will have the ability to do that is if they delve into the transfer market for some new players who are capable of revitalising the side.
One player our punters think would have the potential to blossom in this United side is Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic, who is valued at £27.00 million on Transfermarkt. The 23-year-old has featured in 25 games throughout this season but has failed to retain a starting spot every week due to the high levels of quality that Real Madrid have, with the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Isco all competing for the central-midfield role.
Man United have struggled to find a regular partner for Nemanja Matic at the heart of midfield, with Paul Pogba having been out of sorts and young Scott McTominay isn’t quite at the required level yet despite some of his impressive performances thus far. This leaves the perfect space for a high-quality midfielder such as Kovacic to come into United and prosper under Mourinho’s management.
He is clearly a talented player having played in 25 games this season for Real Madrid and if Manchester United want to take the league seriously next season and give a real fight to Man City, Kovacic is the type of player the Red Devils need.
