Manchester United are in no real need of defensive midfielders as they have quality players in the squad to cover that position.
Veteran England international Michael Carrick has been consistent as the holding midfielder this season and provides creativity as a deep lying playamker as well.
On the other hand, Louis van Gaal brought Dutch international Daley Blind in the summer transfer window and the former Ajax star has returned from injury to provide further depth in defensive midfield.
What Manchester United really need is a complete midfielder such as the likes of Pogba or Strootman etc.
Manchester United were also interested in attacking midfield star Croatian international Marcelo Brozovic as per Daily Star but he has moved to Italian league.
The 22 year old Dinamo Zagreb star has completed loan move to Serie A side Inter Milan as the Italian club confirmed stating:
“Marcelo Brozovic is an Inter player.”
Nerazzurri have been highly successful in completing loan deals in this winter window with already signing top talents like Shaqiri from Bayern and Podolski from Arsenal as well.
This season, the Croat has featured in 26 appearances for Dinamo, scored 3 goals and also provided 6 assists.
Stats indicate that the Brozovic surely is another valuable addition to Roberto Mancini’s new-look attacking setup.
