We need another creative or all round central midfielder, we cannot rely on Pogba / Matic all season. It needs to be somebody who can cover when one of them is injured and take Lingard’s position when fit. I don’t think Herrera is good enough.December 6, 2017 at 9:14 am #1566506
Sympathy for the DevilsParticipant
Lucas Moura is exactly the type of player we need – a right footed right winger willing to run at defenders and get crosses in for our big forwards. His lack of consistency is because he has never been given a proper run in the side for ages now, and it’s not for lack of talent but rather because PSG have one of the best attacking trio’s (as well as backups) in world football right now.
Besides him, can anyone name a right-footed right winger who is available to come in? Lemar possibly from Monaco possibly but he still prefers the left wing and is a predominantly left footed player (although still more than capable with his right). Other than that it’s all about left-footed players cutting in from the right which is something that we really don’t need with Mata and Mhkitaryan already in that mould at the moment.December 6, 2017 at 10:23 am #1566553
I thought last year Gabriel Barbosa would be one we would be looking at, but after moving to inter then getting loaned out to benfica he has done nothing of note this season!
Also have kept a look in at Breel Embolo who also has done not a lot over the last year!
I would like to see 2 wingbacks and a top class midfielder in the summer,
Would be happy with a Moura signing in Jan aswell, wish we had signed him a few years ago thoughDecember 6, 2017 at 10:44 am #1566564
Leemo J-Embolo has been injured for a very long period of time I believe mate?!December 6, 2017 at 10:50 am #1566568
Embolo is just back after a year out with a very serious knee injury.
I wouldn’t be rushing to buy Moura either, he has struggled to make the team in PSG since day 1. He’s obviously not as good as people thought he was going to be. There’d be a lot of European teams in for him if he was good enough but it seems no-one has made a concrete offer. Just because he’s fast and right footed doesn’t mean he’ll solve our problems.December 6, 2017 at 3:25 pm #1566692
Apparently Jose has offered Mata/Mikhy in exchange for Joao Mario?!December 8, 2017 at 10:34 am #1567505
Jose it seems has £80m for January and it seems Alex Sandro of Juve is the 1st player on the list! A lb wanted by City and Chelsea in the past,for a reported fee of £60m!December 8, 2017 at 11:37 am #1567538
If Joao Mario can’t cut it at Inter how could he possibly cut it at Man Utd? This is a nothing story imhoDecember 8, 2017 at 1:28 pm #1567630
For those of you saying we should target Moura, if that is the style of player you are looking at then why not Willian? At least he wouldn’t need to adapt to the PL and knows exactly what Mourinho wants off him.
May be a moot point though if Lingard keeps progressing.
I agree with Scholsey – we need another creative and dynamic, powerful CM. I’m happy with Herrera as backup to Matic but without Pogba we struggle (hopefully I’m proved wrong against City)December 8, 2017 at 2:09 pm #1567653
Break the bank for Dele in the summer. A midfield of Matic holding, with Dele and Pogba box to box…and a front three of Martial, Rashford and Lukaku…WOW.
As far as January is concerned…I think a CM is key. Injuries to Pogba and/or Matic could dampen our season. Someone in the mould of Kante/Ndidi/Carvalho/Casemiro. A destroyer!December 8, 2017 at 4:00 pm #1567708
@lmzino – i was thinking the same about the ndidi kid. and surely a very gettable playerDecember 8, 2017 at 4:39 pm #1567731
Ndidi does look a quality player. Not sure if he’s good enough going forward but still only 20 years old. Wouldn’t be available in Jan though. Prob available for under 40 million next summerDecember 8, 2017 at 6:08 pm #1567778
@redblood, I think you spend too much time reading the tabloids mate! In any case if Alex Sandro is available then I think he’s a no brainer – quality left back that. I no nothing of Joao Mario so I won’t comment there.
I fully agree that we need more dynamism in midfield.
@englishbob. Shouldn’t you be posting on the City page? You aren’t a United fan so please kindly post elsewhere you spineless Judas.December 8, 2017 at 6:39 pm #1567788
@hatters i’d love to man but the internet connection at your mother’s house is shitty so hard to post on their page as well as ours. she also says that she’ll do your washing this one last time but that from now on you’ll have to make alternative arrangements.December 8, 2017 at 6:54 pm #1567793
@englishbob. Nice classy response there mate. Typical of a City fan to insult another’s mother. Just make sure you don’t get too distracted by the game on Sunday or you might forget to do your homework.

Hehehe,not @ all @hatters mate,just flicking through the headlines online.Love your interactions with englishbob,what a fella!December 8, 2017 at 7:55 pm #1567808
@englishbob-I reckon United should let Lukaku go in the summer and move for W.Bony and K.Iheanacho!December 9, 2017 at 9:33 am #1567880
@hatters – call your mother. she worries. we do hope you join us for christmasDecember 9, 2017 at 9:35 am #1567881
@redblood – just remember that when lukaku turns out to be shit and you dont want him in the team. im guessing you’re on the united board. they do love to keep not good enough players instead of moving them on.December 9, 2017 at 10:13 am #1567891
English Bob is the same person who is behind The Martial Art. I’d wager good money on it.
