What has been clear from almost directly after the summer transfer window ended is that the Red Devils need defenders, with them being short at the back for most of the season so far.
Michael Carrick, as well as youth prospects Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett have had to play at centre-back so far although this has not been helped by the injuries that the squad has suffered.
Here are the positions that they need strengthening and who they should sign to do so…
CB) Mats Hummels
The 2014 World Cup winner would be perfect to lead the Red Devils’ back line, and has been linked to the club repeatedly over the last 12 months.
United have been short at the back ever since Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, and Nemanja Vidic all left the club in the summer.
Currently part of a massively underperforming Borussia Dortmund side, the German may be keen on getting out of the club in the January window. If he did leave, then it would be to United’s massive gain.
