Manchester United: 5 Players They Might Be Going After in January

The Premier League has started with one team beginning the season in stunning and blazing fashion. This team has scored a stunning 18 goals in its four matches of the season, including the whopping 8-2 demolition against rivals Arsenal.

The team is of course, Manchester United, who've in my opinion been the best side so far in the Premier League and are deservedly on top of the league. Manchester United have had an excellent transfer window where they acquired some quality players, especially Ashley Young, who has been one of the best signings so far this season.

Despite their excellent start to the season and their excellent signings, the Red Devils still haven't solved their problem in the holding midfielder position, which they've had problems with ever since the injury and eventual departure of Owen Hargreaves. Many fans have never been convinced with Micheal Carrick and with Ferguson occasionally using Phil Jones, who's a central defender, as a holding midfielder. Bringing in a new CDM could be a target and goal in January.

Another target might be in the playmaker position, especially after the injury to Tom Cleverley. Cleverley put in some excellent performances, but unfortunately was on the end of a bad tackle from Kevin Davies and it could be a position Ferguson will reinforce, possibly with either a younger, rising talent or an experienced player.

For that, I compiled a list of five players that I think Man Utd could go for in January. Most of the players on the list play as a holding midfielder, which I believe is the position Man Utd are most likely looking to reinforce in January.
