Two things Manchester United should prioritise in the January transfer window

The January transfer window is rapidly approaching and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just might have his hands full once it finally arrives.

But that’s not something particularly new and big clubs are often active in the market.

Still, there are two key things the Red Devils should prioritise in the winter and we are here to tell you what exactly they are…

Sort Paul Pogba’s future

Of course, the big question regarding Man United’s midfield star comes as no surprise.

We’ve heard whispers of Pogba potentially never playing for the Red Devils ever again and seeing how he has only managed to tally 566 minutes in all competitions this season, spending most of his time out injured, that verdict might not be too far from the truth – even if he did turn out against Watford at the weekend.

In which season did Man Utd win the title with a record fewest Premier League points?

With his contract about to enter its final 18 months anyway, albeit with the option of an extension, now really is the time to sort out Pogba’s future once and for all – the whole saga has gone on for far too long already.

United need to determine whether Pogba is staying for the foreseeable future or will be swanning off elsewhere.

Back-up up front

Back-up for United’s youthful front-line is becoming a near-on necessity.

Marcus Rashford has been on fire lately and has even bagged ten goals in the Premier League but seeing how he wasn’t as prolific last season – having only scored 13 across all competitions by the end of the campaign – there’s no telling if he can keep up that consistency.

Furthermore, Anthony Martial is United’s second-best goal-scorer in the domestic league with just four goals. Quite clearly, they need an alternate source for rattling the inside of the net, whether that’s someone who can give a different option when coming on from the bench or a versatile forward who can play alongside Rashford as well as in his traditional central slot.

A proven and lethal finisher, even if it’s someone on a short-term basis, could help bump United up a level in the New Year.
