SIR ALEX FERGUSON has put Bastian Schweinsteiger and Tom Huddlestone at the top of his midfield hitlist
Manchester United boss Fergie is eager to bolster his midfield options amid concerns over a number of his top stars.
With question marks hanging over the futures of Owen Hargreaves, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs, the United boss must strengthen his engine room.
And Fergie has put Bayern Munich star Schweinsteiger and Tottenham’s Huddlestone at the top of his wanted list.
The Scot is a huge fan of Germany international Schweinsteiger and believes he can lure him to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.
Fergie has turned to £30m Schweinsteiger after losing out on Holland ace Wesley Sneijder – who last night signed a new four-year deal at Inter Milan.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been linked with many potential new signings since resolving the club’s issues with Wayne Rooney and this pair would add great value to the Old Trafford club, but can Man United get these deals done?
Bastian Schweinsteiger may well be interested in a new challenge and the German may well be keen on a move to the Premier League and may feel that he has achieved as much as he can with Bayern Munich and a big money move may well appeal to the 26 year old.
Tom Huddlestone may similarly feel that his side, though greatly improved, can not compete for top honours and the White Hart Lane man may also believe that his chances of securing a regular spot in Fabio Capello’s plans may be more easily achieved at a club of Man United’s stature.
