As has been constantly eluded to, new Manchester United boss David Moyes has not exactly set the club alight, with either signings or indeed results. Granted he claimed his first major bit of silverware, beating Wigan in the Community Shield on Sunday, however the performance was by no means perfect.
Failed bids have been a common theme emerging for Premier League clubs, especially at Old Trafford. Having been unsuccessful with deals already for Barcelona duo Thiago and Fabregas, there is certainly a need for Manchester to bolster their squad in some ways, and certainly in midfield if rumours, and players who have already been approached are to be believed.
With this in mind, and very little time remaining in this window, Moyes may end up rushing into a bid – something he’ll live to regret. United have been linked with several players, however below are five players The Red Devils must avoid at all costs.
