Not so long ago, Manchester United were on top of the Premier League table. Now, they find themselves 5 points behind rivals and neighbors Manchester City, who have a game in hand as well.
Rio Ferdinand thinks that the Red Devils have choked in the title race. In my view, we are just not ready yet and need further quality and consistency to challenge for the PL crown.
So, better not take a punt on Man Utd winning the title because you might lose, however, you can always check various payment methods for William Hill on the latest football fixtures.
In my view, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should reinforce the following positions in the next transfer window.
Robin van Persie was the last center forward at Old Trafford who managed to find the net more than 20 times in the Premier League. Since then, no Man Utd striker has even managed to reach the 20 goal mark in the PL.
Anthony Martial was mainly used in the No.9 role last term but he is not a natural striker. Moreover, this term, he has been out of form as well.
On the other hand, Edinson Cavani has got a proven track record but he is a veteran. So, we need a long term solution and I think Ole should move to secure the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
We have a top left winger in the form of Marcus Rashford, moreover, Bruno Fernandes is absolutely world class and irreplaceable in the No. 10 role behind the striker.
However, United do not have quality as far as the right wing position is concerned. Daniel James has been highly inconsistent since joining us from Swansea in 2019. On the other hand, Mason Greenwood has potential but for now, he is inexperienced and not good enough.
We were looking to sign Jadon Sancho last summer but failed and reports suggest that Dortmund are planning to offload him this year. So, the opportunity is there for Manchester United but the England international is a wanted man with top European clubs interested in hiring his services.
If we fail to lure the Three Lions star again then an alternative must be signed and in my view, someone like Portuguese and Sporting CP right winger Pedro Goncalves, aka, Pote, who is currently the leading scorer in the Liga Nos would be a top addition.
