Where Manchester United Could Turn for Help at Left Back This Summer

For Manchester United, this summer's transfer window has been an underwhelming one.

While "noisy neighbours" Manchester City have spent upwards of £90 million on new signings, for the English champions, the only new recruit coming through the door has been Uruguayan fullback Guillermo Varela.

Hardly a "marquee signing" nor indeed a noteworthy one.

In fairness to new manager David Moyes, it is not as though he hasn't been putting in the effort.

Bids have been made for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, two in fact, both of which have been rejected by the La Liga giants.

Then of course there was the £12 million offer last month for Everton left-back Leighton Baines, which was also met with short shrift.

It is at left-back where United are badly in need of reinforcements. 

Patrice Evra rang in his 32nd birthday in May, while understudies Alexander Buttner and Fabio, who has just returned from a troublesome loan spell with QPR, have much to prove before they can be considered as adequate, long-term replacements.

The Red Devils need a new, experienced left-back, especially as Evra continues to be linked with a return to Monaco, and here, B/R takes a look at Where Manchester United Could Turn for Help at Left Back This Summer.
