Three Players Who Are Expected To Join The Mega Project At Manchester United

Time is running out for Manchester United who have been very busy in the transfer market so far. Jose Mourinho has already handed the United CEO, Ed Woodward, his preferred list of transfers but a major portion of the given names are yet to appear.

United secured the services of Victor Lindelof from Benfica for £30m while they have splashed a whopping £75m to reunite Romelu Lukaku with Mourinho. Despite being linked with a number of players, United haven’t really made a mark in the transfer market except for the capture of Lukaku.

United surprised everyone by announcing the arrival of the Belgian superstar who was supposed to be Chelsea’s marquee signing of this summer. But a lack of intent and the last minute intervention from United tilted the deal in their favour.

Mourinho has targeted at least three players including a defensive midfielder and an attacking midfielder before quitting the transfer market. A lot of names have been doing the rounds and we look at the probable three options who could be suitable in Mourinho’s setup.

Ivan Perisic

Lukaku’s transfer has made the arrival of a winger seem pretty imminent. Lukaku’s playing style depends a lot on the wide men as he loves to combine with the crosses floated in from both the flanks.

Lukaku is a very good header of the ball and is also adept at losing his marker and meeting the deliveries from out wide. But there is a shortage of conventional wingers at the Old Trafford. The likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial did have their chance on the left flank but they like to cut back in to have a more direct approach to the goal.

Perisic’s arrival could be a plus point for the Red Devils as the Croatian winger can deliver delicious balls from the wing and thus could help enhance United’s chances to score goals.

Nemanja Matic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s stint was heavily successful at the Old Trafford, as the lanky Swedish helped the Red Devils to win the Europa League and the EFL Cup as well. But there was very little in terms of goals or assists other than him and a defensive midfielder could solve this problem as he would allow Paul Pogba to roam forward which would definitely improve the creativity up top.

Kasper Schmeichel

The impending departure of David De Gea might pave the way for this Danish international. The Leicester City keeper’s future is pretty secure at the King Power Stadium as of now.

But according to reports, United are believed to be in the hunt for a new keeper if their Spanish shot stopper decides to leave the Old Trafford for Santiago Bernabeu.

Schmeichel could follow the path of his father Peter Schmeichel who had a pretty successful stint at the Old Trafford.
