There’s no doubt that the Manchester United team needs overhauling. David Moyes failed to bring in the required reinforcements during the summer and the club will back him to put their season back on course during the January window.
But as well as a lack of quality throughout the team, United are also dealing with ageing stars in the team and notably in the spine. Michael Carrick, Rio Ferdinand and Robin van Persie are the wrong side of thirty, while Patrice Evra needs replacing at left-back and Ryan Giggs may be in his last season. United need an injection of youth with the view to long-term success.
