Central midfield is definitely one of the areas where Manchester United need to invest heavily in the January transfer window. However, there are other areas of the squad too that needs proper consideration at the moment, especially the wing position.

Patrick Herrmann

Probably in the entire United Kingdom, Manchester United are the only club who have given so much emphasis on wing play. As a result of which several great wingers have come out from this iconic club – Best, Beckham, Ronaldo, Giggs et al.

This season, wing-play has been a huge disappoint, to say the least. Apart from young Adnan Januzaj, none other wingers have made huge impacts. Players like Nani, Young, kagawa, Valencia (to some extent) and Zaha (who didn’t get chance even) have fared below far. Possibly, this has prompted David Moyes to search for another young winger in the transfer market.

According to reports from The Mirror, Manchester United are plotting a move to sign the highly rated Borussia Monchengladbach winger Patrick Herrmann, who is also a target of Arsenal.

Back in October, talksport reported that Arsene Wenger has been keeping a close tab on the development of the 22-year-old. He has represented Germany at the European Under-21 Championships in June, where his impressive performances have caught the eye of national team manager, but has yet to make his senior debut.

This season, he has already scored 3 goals and bagged 5 assists already. However, his overall contribution to the game is pretty impressive. He is a terrific dribbler (2.4 dribbles per match) while has an eye for key passes (1.5 per game).

He has a contract till 2016 and could cost around £13m but United are looking to lodge a formal bid in around £8.5m to lure the youngster.

Should Manchester United sign another winger in January?

  1. the world class players, they don’t want to play for man utd bcoz of the coach david mys, some of player are afraid bcoz hard trainning. Both man utd first 11players has got injured this season, most of players in the world they want to play 4 man utd b4 furgurson retiement, another problem moyes need top player 4 cheap price, even moyes he can’t sell top ply 4 cheap price.

  2. Moyes and woodward are useless at business. Mufc have the money. Stop flapping and stop negotiating. Be asertive like city. Liverpool. Cheslsea. You want a player go get him. End of!

    Current back four is slow, lack ability and never liked rapheal. He is arrogant and loses concentration. Bayern munich champions league then real madrid. See the pattern. Cost us goals in the same fashion.

    We need fernando reus kroos mangala and herrmann kyle walker.

    Love utd forever. Will support moyes but in truth moyes and woodward are amateurs.

    Thats the truth
