The transfer window was opened on New Year’s Day and Manchester United will be hoping to buy some new blood for the club.
The first of their needs is a good defender as the duo of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic is reaching their age. They are not so quick now as they were earlier and David Moyes really has a headache to replace them with the likes of Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling still present in the club. However, he needs a creative centre back who clears the ball in almost every dangerous situation and does not let the opposition pass him as easily as they are passing the defenders these days.
David Moyes will also be hoping to buy a good mid fielder and a winger for the club in the mid field area. He really needs to buy a mid-fielder who has the ability and confidence to fill the seat of Paul Scholes who had retired the previous season.
Everton’s Marouane Fellaini was not able to do that and now Moyes is concentrating on Everton’s Ross Barkley and the expected price that Moyes will pay is 50 million euros. Arturo Vidal, Juventus mid fielder, is another person who has been attracting David Moyes’ attention for some time.
Chelsea mid fielder Juan Mata is facing some problems at Chelsea and he will be another one chased by Manchester United. As for the wing side, Marco Reus, the Scot manager is concentrating a young Borussia Dortmund mid fielder, on. Let’s see if the Scot is able to lay his hands on at least one mid fielder this January.
Another headache Moyes has been receiving is Van Persie’s injuries and Wayne Rooney’s Chelsea rumours. Robin Van Persie, 31-year-old Dutch international, is getting many injuries these days and he is taking time to recover.
Moyes will be looking for a fast and young striker to replace the Dutch. Also, the Wayne Rooney rumours are still on a high but according to some sources, he is happy now as he is getting the play time that he wanted as compared to Sir Alex Ferguson’s last years at the club.
The Manchester United team will be hoping to have an improvement this transfer period as compared to the summer transfer period where there were not any big star signings as we thought there would be.
