The Brazilian central defender may have taken his time working his way up the footballing ladder but he is now an important lynchpin of an impressive Bayern Munich side. A commanding aerial presence, Dante represents an almost perfect like-for-like replacement for United’s outgoing Serbian. The difficult part comes in convincing the Brazilian to trade his position in Munich’s all conquering side for a spot in Moyes’ re-building project at Old Trafford. Media reports strongly linked the centre back with a transfer to United until news of his contract renewal broke a month ago. An ambitious target, Dante is a defender which Moyes should continue to consider nonetheless.
