Man United Transfer Rumors: 10 Players the Red Devils Would Love to Land
Every summer, there are always tons of players who get linked to various clubs due to a variety of different reasons.
From a great World Cup to a pursue of a player due to a fantastic season the year before, there are always players who get linked all over the world.
And this is no different than with Manchester United, who are always linked to some of the best players in the world despite not being too active in the summer transfer window during the last several seasons.
Due to this, here are 10 players that Manchester United should try to land at Old Trafford before the end of the transfer window.
Luis Suarez (Ajax)
A huge star in the World Cup for Uruguay despite his infamous handball in the quarterfinal against Ghana, Luis Suarez can score tons of goals for Manchester United should he ever join the Red Devils.
Of course, a player such as Suarez would be a great fit at Old Trafford, but due to a lot of young strikers at Old Trafford right now and the fact that Suarez is cup-tied, it is extremely unlikely he will move anywhere this summer, especially Old Trafford.
Keisuke Honda (CSKA Moscow)
Japan's star during the World Cup, Keisuke Honda has been linked with numerous clubs throughout this summer including giants such as AC Milan and Arsenal.
Honda could play as a midfielder and be a replacement for Paul Scholes, but it is unlikely that he will move with the Russian Premier League season in full swing.
Jack Rodwell (Everton)
The next great young Everton player, Jack Rodwell has a tremendous amount of talent and will be a big player in Everton's season this year as they look to at least get a Europa League spot this season.
Of course with the limited amount of time left in the transfer window, it is unlikely that Rodwell would be moving anywhere this summer, but Everton might have to give up Rodwell if the amounting pressure on the young Englishman continues.
Igor Akinfeev (CSKA Moscow)
Heavily linked to Manchester United during the Champions League group stage back in 2009 due to two fantastic performances against Man United in the group stage, Igor Akinfeev could still find himself on the road back to Old Trafford this summer.
However, the Russian Premier League season and the fact that he has been all but forgotten with being Edwin Van der Sar's replacement could mark the end to any possible move for Akinfeev.
Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
A Manchester United target for the last several seasons despite his major move to Real Madrid, Karim Benzema is extremely talented and could always find himself moved to Manchester United, where there was a strong possibility that he would become a regular starter.
But now, Benzema would not get nearly the starting time he deserves with a whole new influx of starting strikers now at Manchester United, which will end the chance of Benzema becoming a starter at Old Trafford.
Wesley Sneijder (Inter Milan)
The best player on the Netherlands during the 2010 World Cup in which he scored five goals, Wesley Sneijder has since found himself continuously linked with a move away from the San Siro to Old Trafford.
Sneijder would most likely be the replacement for Paul Scholes in the midfield, but that move seems less and less likely due to Sneijder's age and the fact that United are mainly pursuing young players now.
Hugo Lloris (Lyon)
The starting goalkeeper for France during their terrible World Cup, Hugo Lloris is a bright light in a gloomy time for French football, and could see himself moved to Manchester United to become even better.
A move for Lloris to go to Man United would make tons of sense considering that the Red Devils will soon need a goalkeeper to replace Edwin Van der Sar, and Lloris would be a great replacement.
Fabio Coentrao (Benfica)
The left winger for Portugal during the World Cup, Fabio Coentrao was linked to several Premier League squads during the World Cup, but there has not been any recent news about Coentrao.
Overall, Coentrao can provide a lot for Manchester United should they sign him, but it is unlikely he will join the Red Devils with Rafael, Fabio and Patrice Evra all starters on the wings.
Rafael Van Der Vaart (Real Madrid)
After spending the last several years with Real Madrid and finding himself with less and less playing time, Rafael Van der Vaart appears ready to make the leap to Manchester United after recently saying that he is welcome to a move to England from Real Madrid.
Van der Vaart would be a major plus in an uncertain midfield at the moment, and he certainly would be a fantastic pickup by Manchester United.
Maarten Stekelenburg (Ajax)
The goalkeeper for the Netherlands in the World Cup that saw the Dutch reach the final, Maarten Stekelenburg would be a perfect heir to fellow countryman Edwin Van der Sar's throne at Old Trafford.
Stekelenburg proved that he can face and play with the best players in the world during the World Cup, and an acquisition for him would be a move that would pay major dividends for Manchester United for years to come.
