Man United Plan January Move to Sign ‘New Zidane’

Old Trafford side continue to chase La Liga playmaker.

According to Italian source TuttoMercato Sir Alex Ferguson will push ahead with plans to sign Valencia playmaker Sofiane Feghouli in the January transfer window.

The 23 year old is in his third season at the La Liga side and has garnered a lot of attention with his consistent displays for the Mestalla outfit and boss Mauricio Pellegrino may be concerned that the Algerian international could be the latest talent to leave Valencia for a shot at the big time.

Feghouli moved to Spain in the summer of 2010 and was loaned out to Almeria before making a real impact last term, making 49 appearances and helping Valencia to a top three finish and the semi-finals of the Europa League.

The former French Under 21 international opted to represent Algeria at international level and is a player most often used in an attacking midfield role and may be a player Sir Alex Ferguson looks to bring in to add more creativity to his midfield, the former Grenoble man also plies his trade on the wing.

Ferghouli had been dubbed the ‘New Zidane’ when he first emerged on the scene at Grenoble though it’s fair to say that he is yet to fully deliver on his obvious potential but a move to Man United would certainly greatly aid that goal.
