Not One but Two Full-Backs!

According to one Sunday tabloid, David Moyes is set to spend big this summer in acquiring two new full-backs.

Our friends over at the Daily Star Sunday are intimating that Moyes intends to raid his former club for a right back and Southampton for a left-back.

With regards to the Everton target, Moyes has veered away from trying to lure Leighton Baines away from Goodison Park and is, instead, looking at 25 year-old Seamus Coleman

And as for Southampton, the word is that United are still extremely keen to bring 18 year-old Luke Shaw to the north-west.

If business can be done for both players then the reference tabloid reckons United will be making an outlay somewhere in the region of 45 million.

Both Coleman and Shaw would be much better than what we have now but another 45 million spent and a centre midfielder nowhere in sight, I'm not buying it.

Evra is past it and needs to go. Though with Evra I think the issue is more than just being past it but also the fact that he knows it doesn't matter who turd he plays he can't be dropped as there isn't sufficient competition in his position. Shaw would be a cracking replacement but he's only just signed a new contract at Southampton whilst Southampton are unwilling to sell. Not that that's a massive issue, there's plenty more left backs out there who can do a job for the team, thing is we need two.

Rafael is having a mare but I think that's more due to frustration and form than actual ability. Last season he was second to only a considerably more experienced Zabaleta (which stands for a helluva a lot when you're a defender) in the right back position. You don't go from potential world beater, second best RB in the league and odds on favourite to succeed Dani Alves in the Brazil squad to not good enough in a season. Not against signing Coleman (though I doubt he'll leave Everton) but for rotation, back-up and sufficient competition reasons, Rafael needs to be kept on the top of his game or risk going down the same route as Evra.
