David Gill has hinted at "one last signing," which is expected to be Wesley Sneijder. But the last few days may have changed both the expectation and the need. Who should Manchester United be considering now?
For all the talk of replacing Paul Scholes, the player Manchester United never replaced was Roy Keane. Brian Robson and Paul Ince were similar in being combative and able to take play forwards.
For all his brilliance, Paul Scholes was never able to tackle without fans holding their breath. Owen Hargreaves was injury prone. Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick have had to 'fill in.'
Wesley Sneijder seems to tick the boxes, but a new twist has been added with the injuries to Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Rafael.
Who should United consider signing in the last two weeks of the season? Sneijder could still be the "one big signing," but failing that, one or even two of the following could still arrive.
