A wobble in form has highlighted the need for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to spend over the summer and, if entrusted with a big budget, who knows how far Manchester United could go next season?
For all the spirit and good feeling the Norweigan legend has installed around Old Trafford, he now needs serious backing from the owners to bring his dream to life.
As a player, he was influential for United and if he is to do the same as manager, then in the modern era, money is usually the way to go about doing that.
Having failed to sign anyone of real note last summer, Man United fans are expecting big things this summer as they’re all hungry for success. If reports from ESPN last month are to be believed, due to the potential departures of the likes of Ander Herrera and Juan Mata, Atletico Madrid’s Saul maybe rocking up to Old Trafford.
Saul Niguez, (who is valued at £81 million on Transfermarkt) is a midfielder that would safely rank as one of the world’s best and what a coup that could be for Ed Woodward and Manchester United.
In all competitions this season, the 24-year-old has six goals to his name, along with three assists. With great assets that would surely be of interest to Man United, Saul must be signed at all costs, whether they have to battle against rivals Man City or not.
He has a great engine that helps his get around the pitch with ease whilst also having the magnificent quality to deliver a killer final ball or stride forward and score himself. Indeed, a midfield trio of Paul Pogba, Saul Niguez and Nemanja Matic would take some stopping and so long as United strengthen other areas as well, there is no reason why they couldn’t challenge for the title.
