Defensive Midfielder Linked

Defensive Midfielder Linked

Looking to bolster the midfield department, at Old Trafford, is not becoming an easy thing to achieve.

Potential deals for Luka Modric and Lucas Moura appear to have come to nothing and we`re left wondering over who may, or may not, come to Old Trafford.

This morning though another name has been thrown into the hat, although the player we`re linked with is more of a defensive midfielder.

Currently wearing the hooped shirts of Glasgow Celtic and a mere twenty-one years of age, the speculation also him linked with a move to Arsenal.

And his name - Victor Wanyama.

Let`s see if anything comes of this one shall we.

Don't really know the lad but have heard a lot of rumours surrounding him with him being linked to numerous clubs. Personally think it's just more tabloid bull as whilst he might be a good player I can't imagine a player impressing in the Scottish Pub League grabbing Fergies attention.

"I can't imagine a player impressing in the Scottish Pub League grabbing Fergies attention". Liam Miller cough cough, Larsson. Sure didn't we sign some Portuguese bum for 7 million that Fergie didn't even see. This lad has looked useful in the few games I've seen, strong in the tackle, quick, and defensively a million times better then the ***** we've had lately, I'm talking about you Carrick. And lets be honest we need a new defensive midfielder now that Fletch is gone and we are left with the worlds most unBrazilian Brazilian in Anderson and Michael I'm scared of all things spherical Carrick. He shouldn't cost a lot it might be worth taking a punt on him.

He also signed players from his old Aberdeen days however he admitted they were mistakes and that he's learnt from it so now he's more cautious when signing from the SPL. Miller was a free transfer and was no risk involved, we never paid anything nor lost anything with him, it was worth a punt. Larsson is a class act during an age when the SPL actually produced some decent players and once again he cost us nothing, it was just a loan. Times are different and the SPL is no better than your Sunday League football now with only 1 semi-decent side and even then they struggle to get into the champions league via the qualifiers and in the event they do they can't get past the group stage to save their life. Wanyama looks a good player in an average squad in a ridiculously weak league might be worth a punt but hardly the most convincing candidate and far from enough to fix the glaringly obvious issue with the midfield. If we were to strengthen the midfield let it be with players who can either make the difference now or potentially make the difference, not a player who leaves us in the same position we're already in. Lets put it this way, if he was signed to improve depth, fair enough. However, if he's signed in a pitiful attempt to strengthen our midfield despite not being any better than our current options then thats a massive disappointment. If we're looking to sign a midfielder who can truly make the difference yet abide by our transfer policy of buying young then look no further than potential world beaters who aren't quite there yet but still more than good enough to do a job and improve our midfield like M'Vila, Martinez, Strootman or Elm. They'll more than likely cost us the same amount we were willing to spend on Lucas Moura.

Think that's a tad hard on Carrick. Least he's getting better he's rediscovered the direction forward this season. Anything's better that the pass backwards tactic he's used for the previous 2 seasons
