Despite spending over £150m prior to kicking off his first Premier League term at Old Trafford – including Radamel Falcao, Angel di Maria and Ander Herrera – the club’s fans are still demanding more talent be bought.
One Manchester United supporter handed Louis van Gaal a summer transfer wish-list containing the names of six players that he believes the Dutchman must sign at the end of the season.
Take a look at the six players, as quoted by the Daily Star, that a young Manchester United fan has asked for…
Mats Hummels – Centre-back – Borussia Dortmund
The German has been a constant name linked with the Red Devils, and we would all be hugely disappointed if he doesn’t move to Old Trafford in the summer having had to listen to intense rumours for months.
Despite improved performances from Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the second half of the season, Louis van Gaal knows that his defence needs strengthening.
Nonetheless, a major concern with the World Cup winner is his lack of pace. The 26-year-old’s primary strength is his ability on the ball, but he simply wouldn’t be afford such time in the Premier League.
Manchester United have a plethora of players that are comfortable on the ball, but the team is missing power – with Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes having not been sufficiently replaced.
A defender, such as Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng, would perhaps be a better signing.
