2 Possible Deadline Day transfers for Manchester United – reports
The transfer speculation will be absolutely crazy between now and midnight Thursday but, when you strip away all the madness, there are only two possible transfers that Manchester United could conclude in the next day or so.
Although soccersweep feels that Manchester United need a left winger, to add to their otherwise extremely strong squad, it appears that Fergie would look to bolster in the centre of the park and between the sticks, if the right men came along.
The right man in the midfield would appear to be Celtic megalith Victor Wanyama. Speculation has consistently pointed toward a move to Old Trafford for the Kenyan and ESPN yesterday reported that a last ditch bid of £8m would be tabled. He’s an excellent prospect at just 21 and was personally scouted by Sir Alex last week . We wouldn’t be surprised if a late deal is done for the player, but Manchester United would likely have to stump up a lot more than £8m.
soccersweep is a big fan of David De Gea but it’s obvious he needs to improve his presence in the area and deal with crosses much better. Depending on which pundit you listen to, this foible could scupper Manchester United’s trophy prospects in the latter stages of the season.
Asmir Begovic has long been linked to Manchester United and would apparently love a move to Manchester United. However I also seem to remember him hankering for a move to Chelsea not too long ago. Birmingham City stopper Jack Butland would be the only other obvious altenrative if Manchester United did want to invest during this window, but he is drawing serious attention from Chelsea.
We shall keep you updated as the drama unfurls.
