Of course there will be a few surprises in David Moyes’s mass overhaul of the playing staff this summer. A couple of Varelas – young hopefuls who are worth a punt – to add the the stellar list of players that he want sot bring to Manchester United.
But after a year of speculation we are getting fairly good idea of who David Moyes seems to be coveting most for his new look Manchester United side. This is what we think his wish list looks like.
Manchester United targets?
Goalkeepers – Moyes should tie De Gea down to a new deal which represents the fact that he’s the second best player at the club behind Rooney. Tie him down and the rest is immaterial.
Eliaquim Mangala – A machine of a player. Will be a superstar for France. City look dangerously keen.
Ezequiel Garay – No smoke without fire and his name keeps getting mentioend in relation to Manchester United
Dejan Lovren – Mobile young defender from Southampton who wouldn’t cost the earth
Inigo Martinez – Absolute class.The Ball Playing centre back that Manchester United will desperately need post Rio.
Luke Shaw – Safe as houses even at 18. Also offers penetration and a great final ball from the flank. Moyes should move heaven and earth for this guy. Evra as a mentor? What a dream team.
Luis Filip – Brazilian left-back at Atletico would be suitable alternative to Shaw.
Seamus Coleman – We think that Manchester United would be better off retaining Rafa.
Marco Reus – The jewel in Dortmund’s crown. They won’t want this goalscoring midfielder to leave.
Ilkay Gundogan – A realistic target
Toni Kroos – Unlikely to happen.
William Carvalho – Viera-esque. Classy performer.
Ross Barkley – Dream signing – whatever the cost.
Adam Lallana – Impress me more please.
Radamel Falcao – A lot of money. But even more goals.
Andros Townsend – British flyer. Definitely a Manchester United style player.
Lucas Moura – More much needed pace for Manchester United from the mercurial Moura.
