Manchester United have been linked with German international Emre Can for quite some time and the latest reports are interesting.
The former Liverpool man has mainly been a bench warmer at Juventus under the management of Maurizio Sarri and he was not even selected in the team’s Champions League squad for the group stages.
In such a scenario, his future at the club has been up in the air and numerous clubs are interested in luring him.
Back in October, Sky Sports revealed that the Red Devils are keen on signing the former Bayern Munich midfielder, who is valued at around £35million by the Old Lady.
Now, as per La Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Sport Witness), it is stated that Borussia Dortmund are interested in the Kaiser but the option of moving to Manchester United flatters him more. The Italian source have revealed that with Khedira out injured, Can could get his chance under Sarri but the manager has not trusted him so far and therefore, he might end up leaving the club in January.
In my view, the absence of Khedira does not really improve Can’s chances of featuring in the first team because midfielders like Pjanic, Matuidi, Ramsey and Rabiot are ahead of him in the pecking order.
In the current campaign, so far, the 25-year-old has only made two starts in the Serie A. Therefore, if he wants to play regular first team football then it is better for him to leave the Italian champions in the winter transfer window.
At Old Trafford, Solskjaer does lack quality and depth in the center of the park, he did not strengthen the midfield in the summer transfer window and first team midfielders like Matic and record signing Pogba have mostly been injured this term.
So, Man Utd should splash the cash to sign a versatile midfielder in January and Can, who can effectively play anywhere in the center and has proved his talent in the Premier League, would improve the department.
It is likely that the German will ruin his relation with the Anfield club if he joins Man Utd. In your view, should Solskjaer move to sign Emre Can in January?
