Manchester United have failed to win the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. In that time the Red Devils have sacked two managers and are in the middle of a rebuilding process under Jose Mourinho.
3 Potential Manchester United Signings
The Portuguese manager guided United to success in the Europa League, through which they secured Champions League football for next season. But that is not enough. The Old Trafford club will need to challenge for the Premier League title next season. And for that they need some reinforcements to their squad.
So here is a look at three players who could help Manchester United turn into Premier League title challengers.
The Swedish defender was linked with Manchester United in January. Manager Jose Mourinho ended up sticking with his current defenders and a move never materialized. However, there are rumors that the move is back on now and Lindelof could become United’s first summer signing. United have struggled defensively in the last four years. And while Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo enjoyed successful seasons with the club, the need for another top-class defender still exists. Lindelof could be the answer to United’s problems. The 22-year old is a strong ball playing centre-back who has great composure. The Swedish international could cost the Old Trafford club £30 million, which is relatively cheap in today’s market. The Red Devils have had some strong partnerships in defence over the years. A pairing of Lindelof and Eric Bailly could help them return to the top once again.
The Real Madrid play-maker has also been heavily linked with United over the last six months. Rodriguez has failed to make his mark at Real Madrid but there is no denying that he has the potential to be a world class player. Even in a season where he was scarcely used, Rodriguez managed 11 goals and 13 assists in just 33 games. Rodriguez will cost the Red Devils around £60-70 million. Even at that price, the Colombian international could prove to be a quality signing for the Red Devils.
The former Juventus striker is another one of Real Madrid’s fringe players. Manchester United are one of the clubs interested in him and could move for him in an attempt to ease their woes in front of goal. The Spanish international is a known for his work rate and ability to beat defenders as well as his goalscoring. Despite being second choice last season in Madrid, Morata managed to get 23 goals for the club. United are in the market for a prolific goalscorer, and Morata could well be the answer to United’s problems.
