Manchester United have received heavy criticism this season, mainly due to the fact they have already lost two games, the same as City did in the entirety of last season.
Jose Mourinho has continued to be pelted with critics but at the end of the day, the Portuguese manager is one of the most successful managers in football and although he is struggling to get the best out of his players, he should be the man to lead United’s revival.
Big changes do need to happen at Old Trafford and that main change should be investing in a world class centre-back, someone like Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez – who is valued at £45 million on Transfermarkt.
The 23-year-old Uruguayan has been partnered next to former United target Diego Godin for both club and country, together making an unbeatable back-line that poses a concern to any attackers in world football.
Gimenez is yet to reach even close to his peak potential seeing as he’s only 23 and Manchester United should not only look for someone who has quality now but also the ability to get better, exactly what Gimenez possesses.
A number of problems have already occurred for Manchester United due to their ill-disciplined defending and injuries mixed in as well. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have proven on countless occasions that they aren’t up to United’s high level of performers and although many believed Eric Bailly would be brilliant at Old Trafford, injuries have been his downfall.
Drastic measures need to be taken in January to sort out United’s defence in particular and a quality addition like Jose Gimenez would do exactly that.
