Ed002. January is usually a difficult window to try and buy players especially those who are regular starters for their clubs.
Do you think that united will try to buy in Jan? and do you know what positions are seen as priority right now by the club?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - January is indeed not the best time to be buying but I expect MU will look to a DM player and then it will depend if anyone leaves. If they can also find a suitable S then that will also be a priority in January.}

Based on what we've seen I'm expecting Mandzukic and either Eric Dier or Kalvin Phillips.

I'd still love to see us go for Werner as a forward option. Ed002, do you happen to know whether this defensive midfield player is to replace Matic?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United would be happy if Nemanja Matic were to leave in January and then they could look to a replacement - would be a significant kick in the gonads for those who have been playing, but MU is not a club that cares for their players any longer. If they over price NM they need not worry about it.

Ed002 Thanks.
I would agree that a dm is a priority.

Players don't care about the club and are transient by nature.

But I'd say the club cares about certain players.

Ed002. If Matic leaves, a new DM would become a necessity. McT and Fred are doing very well but there s no backup for them except for Garner who is still a bit raw.
I don't think it s a case of caring or not for their players.

{Ed002's Note - How many DM players does the club need then?}

Ed002 considering Ole s preferred formation is 4-2-3-1 which involves a double pivot, we need a backup for those 2 (Mc T and Fred) - Matic being the only current senior backup player. Hence I think we need at least 1 other player who plays in. that position considering we re playing twice a week and also the intensity.

People have different ideas about what a DM actually is because there are different interpretations of the role to suit different tactics.

We have McTominay and Fred who are more box to box players who work hard defensively rather than holding midfielders who will sit, shield the defence and recycle the ball and try and launch attacks from deep.

Garner may develop into that sort of player, yet he has really flourish this season in the under 23's in a more box to box role which has seen him grab some important goals.

Matic was the kind of player we are lacking in the first team but his legs appear to have gone. He is still good at recycling the ball, but he lacks the ability to cover the defence due to his poor mobility and lack of pace.

So quite simply we are looking to replace Matic who appears to be finished at the top level in the EPL with someone younger and more mobile. Someone who can shield the defence better while also having the ability to hit quick accurate passes to break the lines quickly and launch counter attacks.

Ole keeps saying during interviews that he wants our players to play forward passes quicker.

So someone in that area of the pitch who can hit those passes is what we need.

More of a deep lying playmaker or to go hipster a regista rather than a ball winning destroyer.
