Manchester United continue the search of the cure for their midfield woes as David Moyes reportedly is considering to sign highly rated and overly priced French international Montpellier sensation Remy Cabella who is considered to be a 100m player by the club’s management, as the newly appointed manager looks to add creativity to his midfield.
Newly appointed boss David Moyes is already eyeing up targets for the January transfer window as he looks to recover from a poor beginning to his reign at Old Trafford, with Montpellier’s £30million rated Remy Cabella and Porto’s Fernando two reported targets.
Former Everton boss Moyes has endured a difficult start to his United tenure since replacing Sir Alex Ferguson in May, with a calamitous summer transfer window seeing United sign just one player, Marouane Fellaini from the Scot’s old club.
Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini like to stay back with Carrick trying to dictate the play and Fellaini being a CDM stays back to give cover to the back four thus resulting in a slow movement of midfield and no creativity. This limits the supply to the wingers and strikers, hence no threat from the front four of the champions.
United are in a need of a classic Box to Box midfielder or a creative force in January and the Scot is trying hard to identify the right player for the missing pieces of the jigsaw puzzle.
A pacey, skillful player than can operate on either flank or behind the striker, it seems certain that Cabella will move on shortly and although Montpellier president Louis Nicollin has slapped a £100m price tag on his head, it is thought a bid of around £30m would be enough to prize Cabella away. -
