After 12 Premier League fixtures, Manchester United are 7th in the table, 18 points behind league leaders Liverpool and 9 points behind reigning champions and neighbors Man City, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
So, we are already out of the title race and in my opinion, based on current form, it is highly unlikely that we’ll finish in the top four. Therefore, Solskjaer’s men would need to win the Europa League to play in the Europe’s elite competition next season.
Transfer: Club could offer £35million star to Man Utd, who are keen to sign him
The Red Devils desperately need to strengthen their squad and as per the latest reports going on in the media, a player, who recently completed his French citizenship, is in the lime light.
According to L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), Manchester United are chasing the signature of Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
The renowned French source have claimed that the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are also interesting in luring the 17-year-old play breaker, who could cost more than 30 million euros.
Last month, famous Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported that the teenage defensive midfielder is already valued at 40 million euros (£34million).
Camavinga broke into the first team of Rennes last season and now, he is a regular starter. In the current campaign, so far, he has started every game in the Ligue 1.
At Old Trafford, last season, Matic was our first choice defensive midfielder. However, things are different now. Earlier in the current campaign, the Serbian international mainly warmed the bench and at the moment, he is out injured.
Therefore, Solskjaer surely needs to sign a specialist play breaker as soon as possible. Is Camavinga the answer? Not sure because the youngster has only played 23 senior games in his career so far.
In your view, who should United sign to strengthen their defensive midfield?
No one. A DM is not a playmaker. United needs an influential playmaker, Iniesta-esqe. Fred and McTominay can hold down that role. Pogba into number 10, squad would be a lot better.
