Which of these would be the best fit at Old Trafford?
Manchester United are known to be chasing a number of top class midfielders this January, with Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal eager to improve what has long been a problem position for the club.
United are still arguably struggling to replace the creative influence of Paul Scholes in the middle of the park, with the former England international retiring from the game at the end of the 2012/13 season and leaving something of a hole in that area.
Still, some work has already been done to bring in quality signings in midfield, with the likes of Ander Herrera, Daley Blind and Angel Di Maria joining the club this summer and being among the players used by van Gaal in that department.
However, transfer speculation won’t go away, with these eight players among United’s main targets for January. Read on as we rank their suitability from worst to best…
8) Fredy Guarin (Inter Milan)
A decent box-to-box player currently with Inter Milan, Fredy Guarin is just some way off being the required quality for a club with United’s ambitions, though he could make a useful squad player for a reasonable price.
