Five January Man Utd transfers who could kickstart Rangnick's revolution including Bellingham, De Jong and Trippier
THE January transfer window will soon be open.
And by that time, Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick should have a better idea about his squad and the type of player he’d like to bring in.
The central defensive midfield position feels like it’s been a problem for United since Sir Alex Ferguson departed in 2013.
And it’s reportedly Rangnick’s main area of concern as he tries to lead United in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup in the second half of the season.
So, if Rangnick is granted funds in January, who are some of the names in the frame to help boost his squad? United fan Tom McDermott takes a look.
The RB Leipzig midfielder is the popular choice according to reports, and the Mali international has recently named five United stars he idolised as a child growing up.
Speaking to German outlet Bild, Haidara said that he was a fan of Patrice Evra, Edwin van der Sar, Anderson, Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo.
If he’s to fulfil his dream and play with the latter, United need only meet his £33m release clause – which doesn’t sound that expensive if you add together the £119m they’ve spent in recent years on the likes of Fred, Nemanja Matic and Morgan Schneiderlin.
