Manchester United Transfer Rumours: 5 Players Who Will Make an Impact

0 of 6

    Manchester United is in a tight race to finish atop the EPL table with their Champion's League hopes now dead.

    The team has had injury issues of late, and new bodies are needed greatly. The team looks poised to finish near the top of the EPL but will need to do a lot to catch up to Manchester City.

    Here is a list of five players that Sir Alex Ferguson should look to bring in to help for the EPL title push. 

Wesley Sneijder

1 of 6

    Current Club: Inter

    Position: Attacking Midfielder

    Age: 27

    Wesley Sneijder would represent a new direction for the Red Devils as a completely offensive-minded midfielder.

    He would add creativity to the attack and would have great interplay with Wayne Rooney. 

    Recently, Sneijder has stated he doesn't want to move, but with Inter moving in a new direction, he could look to move to the EPL. 

Klaas Jan Huntelaar

2 of 6

    Current Club: Schalke 04      

    Position: Striker

    Age: 28

    Klaas Jan Huntelaar is a pure goal scorer who has played for some of the best teams in the world.

    He would make a good reserve striker to come in late. 

Christian Eriksen

3 of 6

    Current Club: Ajax

    Position: Attacking Midfielder

    Age: 19

    Christian Eriksen is a special talent.

    At age 19, he is already considered an impact midfielder and will certainly grow into an elite player.

    Manchester United want to grab him up as soon as possible. There will be competition from across Europe for the kid. 

Gary Cahill

4 of 6

    Current Club: Bolton

    Position: Defender

    Age: 26

    Gary Cahill is an English central defender who would be a great addition to the back line with all the current injuries.

    He isn't overpriced but is highly coveted.

    He is worth any sum and will in time be one of the best defenders in the country. 

Alan Dzagoev

5 of 6

    Current Club: CSKA Moscow 

    Position: Attacking Midfielder

    Age: 21

    Like everyone else on this list, Alan Dzagoev would make an immediate impact for the Red Devils.

    He is an attacking player who possesses flair and a great passing ability.

    He has a great work ethic and would be a piece that Sir Alex Ferguson could mould into an impact player for years to come.

    All these players would help push Manchester United through the rest of the season.

    Sir Alex Ferguson needs to bring some bodies in to match the stature of their city rivals, Manchester City.
