Manchester United Ready To Offer In-Form Attacker To Land Barcelona Ace: Does It Make Any Sense?

Manchester United are looking to bring back the Premier League trophy to Old Trafford this term and they have already started this season on a very strong note. The Red Devils have already won six of their seven matches so far and have dished out a number of brilliant performances so far this season, trying to dethrone the current league leaders Manchester City and clinch the top spot on the league table.

The Red Devils got themselves a number of top class players this summer, who are performing well for them so far this season. With the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic making absolute justice to their price tags, there is a chance of some more new players to be added to the side in the winter, helping them to head strongly towards their ultimate goal of clinching the Premier League trophy.

According to reports, Manchester United are looking to make an offer in January for the Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic in order to stabilise their squad for the rest of the season. However, they might have to part ways with one of their most talented players in the form of Anthony Martial as a part of a swap deal between the two clubs.

The Frenchman is in prolific form at the moment, having already scored three goals this season for the Red Devils in the Premier League. However, Jose Mourinho is not preferring him as a regular starter and might be willing to let go of him in the next transfer window.

This has irked a number of clubs for all over Europe including the Catalan giants, who are desperate for a new attacker who can fit into the place for their Brazilian superstar Neymar. The Selecaos skipper left the club to join Paris Saint Germain this summer, leaving a big hole in the front line for the Blaugrana.

On the other hand, Manchester United have suffered the loss of two of their best players in the midfield in the form of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini owing to injuries. They should look to add a player like Ivan Rakitic, who has proved his mettle as one of the best midfielders in the last few seasons. He can add diversity and versatility to the midfield at Old Trafford and is a must-have for Mourinho

Rakitic has performed as one of the best squad players for Barcelona and will surely strengthen the midfield for the Red Devils and help them in achieving their desired target of winning the Premier League for the 14th time. But should Mourinho let Martial be involved in a swap deal for Rakitic?
