Five players Manchester United would do better to look at…
Recent reports in the Daily Star claimed that Manchester United are planning a £20m move to bring Barcelona defender Gerard Pique back to Old Trafford, with the 27-year-old having moved to the Nou Camp in 2008.
It seems a strange rumour, especially considering the Spaniard’s indifferent form since the retirement of long-term centre-back partner Carles Puyol. There are certainly more suitable players Louis van Gaal could target with his seemingly never ending war-chest. Here are just five:
5) Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur)
Jan Vertonghen is being wasted at White Hart Lane, where he is struggling to secure first team football, and has cut a frustrated figure from some time. Given the Belgian is currently out of favour, Spurs could be tempted to sell if they receive a respectable offer. A move could give the versatile defender a new lease of life.
