Potential Man United Targets

Felipe Anderson: I have three words to describe the pursuit of Felipe Anderson. Not United quality. While Anderson is undoubtedly a skillful player, the amount of money being asked for him is outrageous, over €50 Million being rejected over the summer according to Lazio executives, especially when he will quite possibly become the next Angel Di Maria. Until LVG changes his style Anderson wont fit in to the XI nor be the quality that we would expect as supporters.

Bale in a United kit is something we all wish to see, but this looks as close as it will get in the near future.

Gareth Bale: Oh no not again. Manchester United are still repeatedly targeting Gareth Bale with “a world record bid”. I see no truth to this rumor as Bale is in Zidane’s plans according to BBC Sport. Although Bale is the type of player United need, the odds of Real Madrid giving up one of their star men is slim to nil, and edited pictures are the only hope we have left of Bale to United being completed in the near future.

Alvaro Morata: So there is no basis to this yet, Morata is just the type of player that I would love to see United target. Young, strong, quick with the ball at his feet, and quite technically gifted the Juventus front man is the prime example of the type of player United should be targeting. He is projected on Transfermarkt to cost €23.5 Million but will end up costing United around €45 Million

Matthias Ginter: Ginter is a young centre-half currently plying his trade with Borussia Dortmund. The 21 year-old was brought with the 2014 World Cup winning Germany to Brazil, although he did not receive any time on the pitch.

He is a perfect partner to Chris Smalling and is still young enough to prove to be a good pairing for years to come. He is seen as the future of the Dortmund defense so his €10 Million projected value as given by Transfermarkt but will cost by my calculations about €25 Million with possible add ons.



Outgoing Transfers:

Ben Pearson: The now ex-Manchester United starlet has been sold to Preston North End for an undisclosed fee. This is a disappointing move, but one that in the end Pearson had to make for his sake.

He needed first team time in order to continue his development. As for an immediate impact this does not hurt Manchester United at all as the 21 year-old midfielder had never featured in the first team with United, although having a loan spell with Barnsley in which he earned 45 appearances.

Marouane Fellaini: The Manchester United big man,

midfielder converted defensive midfielder, converted number 10, converted striker has been tipped for a move away from Old Trafford. Many United supporters are excited to see this as Fellaini is a symbol of the boring play at United. The reported asking price is €32 Million a massive asking price for the big Belgian who is calculated to have a value of over €10 Million less by Transfermarkt.
