Solskjaer has to solve Man United’s defensive woes with this Brazilian star

Solskjaer has to solve Man United’s defensive woes with this Brazilian star

Man United’s January could well be a massive one, as interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add some quality to the ranks.

Things have been going rather swimmingly for the Norwegian since taking the role following Jose Mourinho’s departure, and it’s going to be interesting to see if the club’s board do in fact entrust Solskjaer with some big cash for new players.

We at the Tavern think he deserves to be backed with a couple of new signings at minimum, and especially in defence, where United continue to look somewhat suspect against the better teams.

That’s why we think the Red Devils need to make their move and sign Porto defender Eder Militao.

The 20-year-old Brazilian has developed a massive reputation for himself already over in Europe, and his stock will only continue to rise if his performances continue at their current standards.

For United, they simply need a new central defender and one who can dominate for years to come, and Militao looks to have all the tools in his locker to be that player.

Strong as an ox already and quick across the ground, the youngster could go on to be United superstar with the right coaching and development in his game.

Money won’t be an object for United if they do decide to make their move, and the Porto man might well be the perfect fit for the Old Trafford outfit b0th in the now, and for the future.

United fans, what do you think? Would this be a good signing? Let us know in the comments!
