According to Metro, Manchester United are seriously considering a January move for the big Norwegian defender, and a move from Fulham seems perfectly feasible.
His performances for the Londoners have seen him linked with the likes of Arsenal in the past, and he certainly has proved capable of rolling with the big guns in the Premier League.
And as well as being feasible, United’s injury crisis in defence would also make this potential transfer very logical.
With Nemanja Vidic, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones all injured, and the likes of Rio Ferdinand a little too susceptible to lengthy lay-offs, strengthening the club’s back line will certainly be a priority for Ferguson.
Hangeland would add quality and physicality to the United defence and could be done so for a reasonable price, hence the move appears very likely to materialise.
