Ten players the Old Trafford side should have on their January shopping list.
10. Leo Baptistao (Rayo Vallecano)
Manchester United don’t need goals, but that did not stop claims that talented young Brazilian striker Leo Baptistao was on Sir Alex Ferguson’s radar as a potential recruit. The Rayo Vallecano forward was said to be seen as a replacement to Javier Hernandez, but it now looks likely he will be joining Atletico Madrid in a summer move instead.
9. Robert Lewandowski (Borussia Dormund)
Borussia Dortmund’s star striker has been linked with Manchester United since before the European Championships got underway in the summer. The Polish international has been rumoured to be coming to the Premier League this month, but, with Dortmund in the final 16 of the Champions League and attempting to overhaul Bayern Munich’s lead in the Bundesliga, any deal is unlikely to happen until the summer.
