With Manchester United failing to impress many during this summer's transfer window, I thought I would look ahead to January, and provide United fan's with a small selection of players who the club would do well to sign over the winter period.
Of course, some of the names in this list are less likely than others to join up with the Red Devils. However, readers should remember that is a selection of superstars who would slot well into the United midfield, as opposed to a group of players that are already being linked to the team.
Some of these players have not been mentioned in the same sentence as United before, and as such probably wont be making any dramatic January moves to Old Trafford.
However, while this is true, it's still fun to imagine what it would be like if said players were to join up with the English Champions—even if it is only for fantasy purposes.
For each player I've provided a ranking between one to 10 of how likely it is that the club will in fact end up targeting the midfielder in question, with one being the lowest likelihood, and 10 the highest.
So, without further ado, let's see who makes the grade.
