Borussia Dortmund star on his way to Old Trafford?
Manchester United are reportedly tracking Borussia Dortmund star Sven Bender to resolve their midfield issues, with a view to making a summer bid.
The Red Devils were overrun in the centre of the park by Newcastle United pair Cheick Tiote and Yohan Cabaye, with injuries in fairness partially to blame.
Dortmund’s Germany international Sven Bender, brother of Lars at Bayer Leverkusen, is the man who usually instigates their high intensity pressing game.
This helps Borussia Dortmund win the ball high up the pitch, and a player like Bender could help Manchester United challenge the dominance of Barcelona.
Unfortunately for Manchester United fans though, with Borussia Dortmund still in the UEFA Champions League, Bender is currently cup-tied.
Sir Alex Ferguson is therefore unlikely to sanction an expensive approach in the current January transfer window.
