Manchester United Close in to Secure €26m Star Signing

Manchester UnitedLouis van Gaal is in desperate need of quality defenders at Manchester United and with time running out in the January transfer window, he must act fast.
The Red Devils signed the likes of Rojo for central defense and Luke Shaw for Left back position in the summer transfer window.
However, Rojo has not proved to be the central defensive leader they need and Shaw has been injury prone plus inconsistent as well. Nevertheless, Blind and Rojo can cover the left full back position as well.
The Red Devils still need a quality central defender and right full back since Rafael is not up to the mark and Valencia is just make shift.
In such a scenario, Manchester United have targeted another Southampton full back in the form of 23 year old England international Nathaniel Clyne.
According to Daily Star, Manchester United are closing in to secure the signing of Clyne from Southampton this winter.
The former Crystal Palace star has been influential for the Saints and a key player in their strong defensive setup.
Strong at the back and also adds to attack, the package makes him perfect fit for Van Gaal’s system.
This season, in 25 appearances for Southampton, Nathaniel Clyne has netted 3 goals as well.
As per the provided Star link, Everton’s Seamus Coleman has been a Manchester United target as well to fill the right full back position but Clyne is now identified as the priority player.

    If LVG like he shld sign Carvajal of madrid, it can solve our problem. Van Gaal don’t even know our main problem. He don’t even see where United problem his. We need Quality center back, not right back. Then bring Chacharito and back for us, and our equatn is well balance.

    Does LVG really knows what he doing as it doesn’t seem to me that he can indentify his problems.

    LVG to me seems to have come to dissorganise man u than re-building, how do you go for a right back when valencia, rafael, jones and many more can play that role instead of looking for one to play a central role, united to me can even finish the season perfect without signing any defender but this can happen only when he LVG changes his 3 5 2 formation to 4 4 2.

    Even if Man United can buy all the stars of the world without penetrating the midfield of the opposition and attack their goals, buying new players will be a waste of the pound. LvG must change his playing style. Midfielders cannot score goals; they cannot even supply the srikers nice footballs.

    What we don’t now is that LVG wants to have at least three options of players in one position so that if one man gets injured or is not performing well he can always take him off and it won’t really hurt him than to have only one player like Shaw for instance the only LB at the club that we can say is proper Blind I will always see him as a DMF not a LB Blind is playing there because Shaw has been hit with Injuries so if we get another left back and I have also seen that a deal has been agreed for Dragovic who is a CB I will see him partnering R0j0 at the back then in the summer we try push for Hummels, Strootman, Bale, Varratti etc and send back Falcao and get Cavani I prefer him rather than Falcao build a team that is strong in depth three players for each position now that wat we call strength in depth. PS please can we get rid of that FAT MAHAWKED DECAPITATED CORPS ANDERSON!!!

    Why wasting money on a right back when we have Valencia, rafeal and Jones. Falcao should go so that Chicharito can come back. The only player we need at the moment is Strootman after signing Dragovic.
