Manchester United may have put together a good run of results following a few early season struggles, but it’s still clear that the team need reinforcements in midfield.

David Moyes failed to bring in a creative midfielder during the summer, prolonging interest in Cesc Fabregas when the Barcelona midfielder was not up for sale, and failing to match Athletic Bilbao’s valuation of Ander Herrera at the last minute.

United will almost certainly go into the next transfer window with the view to strengthening, and La Liga in particular could prove to be a good market to explore.
