Manchester United: January 1st Signing?


Big Month

With Manchester United struggling so badly of late and Louis van Gaal admitting many times this season that he needs more pace out wide, you might assume that Ed Woodward already has deals in the pipeline.

If that were the case then we could surely expect a deal to be announced on the first day of the window, or not long after.

Alas, things don’t seem to run that smoothly at Manchester United these days and the club seems ever more reactive and ever less proactive.

But, if there is an actual plan in place to sign players in January, then who are the most likely through the door tomorrow?

Sadio Mane

Manchester United’s interest in the Southampton talisman has been widely reported and we feel that United would sign him up if his club named a price.

But we know that The Saints don’t want to sell and are under no financial pressure to do so either. But with LvG still not sure of his best front four, or their positions, the adaptability of Mane could be key to success.


Felipe Anderson

Talk about a quick fix. We have be singing the praises of this young man for some time and feel that Manchester United should have recruited the brilliant attacking midfielder in the summer.

He’s lighting quick and can play on either wing or through the centre. He dribbles, he scores plenty of goals and he wins tight games. What more could you want?

We feel that Felipe Anderson will be regarded as a world star before long. Manchester United should pull out all the stops for this Brazilian.


Benjamin Mendy

Anderson: A special talent

Anderson: A special talent

Manchester United manger Louis van Gaal has spoken about the need for a left back with Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo missing so much game time.

We think that this youngster (21) looks the business and would possibly be tempted by a mid-season to move to Manchester United. He’s currently at Marseille in Ligue 1.
