Michael Carrick replacement? Manchester United simply have to sign this Bundesliga star in 2018

Manchester United have a big year ahead of them and plenty will be expected of Jose Mourinho and his team in terms of trophies and success after the massive capture of Alexis Sanchez this month.

The Chilean was the sort of big name capture the Red Devils needed, and with some of the older statesmen of United set to retire or move on during the coming six months, he should prove a good signing.

One such player who will go down as an all-time great with United is midfield maestro Michael Carrick, who is set to step away from playing duties and take up the offer of a coaching role at Old Trafford.

Here in the Tavern, our landlord has always been a massive fan of the midfielder, and he thinks he is the sort of player who has been vastly under appreciated during his time in the Premier League. Given that thought, he thinks that United need to go out and replace him in the summer, and he thinks he has the perfect player in mind.

That player? Dortmund and USA midfielder Christian Pulisic.

The classy 22-year-old has been making a real name for himself over the Bundesliga this last 12 months, and he looks primed and ready for a move to the Premier League, and to one of the league’s top clubs at that.

In Pulisic, United would be getting a class act of a player who can offer them something long term, and also come into the team in the short-term to shore up a midfielder which has at times looked lacking when the likes of Paul Pogba have been missing.

Pulisic is likely to be courted by plenty, but United are still the big draw, and he would no doubt be a super signing for the club.
