Possible targets to help alleviate Old Trafford problem area.
Rio Ferdinand isn’t getting any younger, or any quicker. Nemanja Vidic has had consistent injury concerns. Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are also suffering with constant knocks. Jonny Evans is arguably still not good enough to lead the Old Trafford defence.
So with that in mind, here are five centre-backs Sir Alex Ferguson should consider chasing.
Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
Talented German has helped his side to back to back Bundesliga titles but having seen Bayern Munich go off like a rocket and seen his own struggle to make an impact in the Champions League, a move to Old Trafford could be tempting for the 23 year old.
Solid centre back who may well be on Sir Alex Ferguson’s radar.
