Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern tend to get a little apprehensive when they are linked with South American players at the moment.
The memories of Angel Di Maria’s and Falcao’s ill-fated spells under Louis nan Gaal are still raw and with the amount of money spent on the pair, it’s understandable that United fans greet any links to South American players with skepticism.
Success can be had with the right players however, as Alexis Sanchez and Phillipe Coutinho have shown at Arsenal and Liverpool respectively.
There are very few players who match the intensity and skill that comes from those would learn their trade from a young age on the streets and work so hard to make it to the top.
Untied fans will remember how well Carlos Tevez did for them once he adapted to English football (although perhaps not so much for what happened afterwards…)
With that in mind, here are TWO players we think Mourinho should sign who would adapt to the league quickly.
