Yesterday, Manchester United suffered a heavy defeat against Liverpool and now, Mourinho’s men are 19 points behind the league leading Merseysiders.
The Red Devils have been out of the title race for weeks and now a top four finish is looking very hard as well. At the moment, they are 11 points behind Chelsea, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
The Anfield club completely dominated the game and managed to have 36 attempts on the goal. 36 is a huge number and that many attempts against a top side managed by a renowned manager is an impressive feat. However, this is a terrible stat for the Old Trafford club, who now have a goal difference of ZERO after 17 fixtures.
Either United need to get rid of Mourinho or they must back him with ample funds to reinforce the squad in the January transfer window.
Signing a top quality center half should be the priority of the Portuguese manager. As reported by the Evening Standard few days back, United are ready to smash their transfer record to sign Napoli superstar Koulibaly.
The Senegalese star is one of the best center backs in the world. He is fast, intelligent and has proved his worth over the years for the Italian club.
In the Champions League, the 27-year-old defender was rock solid under Ancelotti. In the last group game vs Liverpool, he did well to keep Salah quiet but the Egyptian international did beat him once and scored. That goal was enough to knock Napoli out of the CL.
Manchester United do have the financial power to tempt Koulibaly with big wages Moreover, they can provide him the chance to feature in the knockout stages of the Europe’s elite competition as well.
We have seen our team suffering a lot in the current campaign and the club needs a leader in the back line just like Liverpool have in Virgil van Dijk. Therefore, United must break the bank to sign Koulibaly as soon as the transfer window opens.
