Will Manchester United solve their midfield woes somehow? That is the question which the Red Devils have been throwing at the management of the club since last two seasons. Even though, Manchester United managed to win the league last season, they lacked creativity all around because Kagawa and Rooney weren’t at their best.
Even the wingers last season were terribly disappointing with hardly managing more than 5 goals the whole season.
Midfield is the area which affects the whole game and United, as compared to the likes of City, Chelsea and Arsenal are really weak. It’s about time we accept that.
United have considered many players and now they are scouting Nemanja Matic from Serbia and Benfica to solve their midfield problems. The Portuguese giants know they are facing a battle to keep the Serbian midfielder at the club in January, and are looking to recoup around £20million by selling him.
The club claim there is strong interest in the former Chelsea reserve, who joined Benfica as part of the deal which saw David Luiz move to Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund are believed to be among those interested, and are set to test Benfica’s resolve with a January bid.
United remain desperate to strengthen their midfield in January, after a summer spent failing to sign targets which has had a negative impact on their season so far.
Moyes saw his side slip to their fourth Premier League defeat of the season last night, going down to a 1-0 home defeat to former club Everton.
The result left Manchester United 12 points off league leaders Arsenal.
