Manchester United are in gallant form, to say the least, in the Premier League at the moment and has won five of their first six matches of the campaign so far, showing great attacking intent as well as solid stability in the middle of the pitch with their new players showing great composure in their style of play.
The man in charge at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho, has added a number of new players in the last summer transfer window to make it a good term for them in the new season and has succeeded in doing so far till now.
However, he is still looking to strengthen his midfield for the rest of the season and is eyeing a number of players, with the name of the German youngster Leon Goretzka right on the top of his target list.
The 22-year-old central midfielder is one of the best players in the Bundesliga in the last few seasons and has been looking to continue his brilliant form for his club as well as country, leading them to triumph in the forthcoming days.
His ability to hold onto the ball for a significant amount of time along with the ability to make passes into the opposition box to provide his teammates with good enough passes to help them score goals for his side has made him one of the most desired targets for a number of big-name clubs in Europe including the Red Devils.
Manchester United might be on the verge of parting ways with one of their most effective players in the midfield in the form of Micheal Carrick, who might hang up his boots at the end of this season.
This will create a big gap in the midfield and the 13-time Premier League champions will need someone good enough to fill in his boots as soon as possible. The perfect player to fit their bill can be the German midfielder, who has been showing absolute authority in his role of a central midfielder for his present side Schalke.
Given their present situation in the midfield, the Red Devils might be looking to make a bid for the player in the forthcoming transfer window, but it will not be very easy for them as Schalke will obviously look to keep the player at the club given his indispensable role in the side.
