Manchester United remain strong favourites to sign world class midfield maestro
It’s been a pretty awful season for Manchester United so far. They remain in every competition but Manchester United’s grip on the title is becoming ever more loose and the performances from the team this season have been largely soulless.
David Moyes has had more serious injuries to contend with than his rivals but he doesn’t seem to be getting the best out of his available crop. He can moan all he likes about the Young penalty claim in the defeat to Tottenham. But with disjointed performances like this Manchester United don’t deserve victories.
They are absolutely howling out for some real class in the midfield. Moyes needs to bring in at least one player who can put the opposition on the back foot. Too much of Manchester United’s current midfield play is cautiously sideways.
Despite his recent utterances about being happy at Galatasaray, Wesley Sneijder continues to be linked with Manchester United and the club are now favourites for his signature in January with bookmaker SkyBet. At odds of 3/1 the bookmaker seems pretty confident that the player will make a move to United this winter – and how Manchester United need him.
At 29 he’s on the top of his game. He’s technically superb and scores a goal every 3 games at least. He would be magnificent purchase for an ailing Manchester United team that is desperate for some new inspiration in the middle.
United fans, is Sneijder the answer or would you rather invest in a younger player?
