Things appear to be falling apart at Manchester United after such a fantastic start under Ole Gunner Solskjaer, with Tuesday night’s performance against Barcelona infuriating supporters.
The Red Devils need to return to winning ways immediately if they are to stand any chance of securing a place in the Champions League next season, as they currently find themselves behind Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal.
However, it appears as if the Red Devils are already looking at bringing in defensive reinforcements, as according to Sport1 (via HITC), Manchester United have turned their attention towards Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule.
Sule is arguably one of the world’s best central defenders and he could definitely solve United’s defensive problems, so here are the potential consequences of the Red Devils signing him this summer…
MAN UTD SECURE VICTOR LINDELOF PARTNER
It’s safe to say that Victor Lindelof has been the only defender that’s really been able to ensure any kind of consistency at the back, so United should be looking to bring players in around him.
Niklas Sule has been hugely impressive during his time at Bayern Munich and he still has his best years ahead of him at the age of 23, so he could be the perfect man to partner the Swede.
He knows how to ensure defensive solidity, he’s strong, dominant in the air and puts in a strong tackle.
PHIL JONES DITCHED
Phil Jones appears to have forgotten how to defend this season and United’s last outing against Barcelona highlighted his defensive weaknesses as he was completely ripped apart by Lionel Messi.
Manchester United need to ditch ordinary players like Jones if they are to get themselves back among Europe’s elite as he’s clearly not good enough to be performing at the top level, so Sule joining could be the nail in Jones’ coffin.
