January - Who Should Manchester United Buy?

Manchester Untied fans are craving a major signing to replace Cristiano Ronaldo. Antonio Valencia has done a commendable job, however they cant always rely on Wayne Rooney to make something out of nothing, i.e; Cristiano Ronaldo's wonderstrike against Porto in the Champions League, and some fans believe Valencia is quite one dimensional and doesn't seemingly celebrate his goals! However lets be real, this post isn't about Ronaldo, as Ferguson and Manchester United have moved on.

Let's look at their best 11.

Van Der Sar

Brown Vidic Ferdinand Evra

Valencia Carrick Anderson Giggs

Berbatov Rooney

Budget: £10-£20million

Man United are said to have a medium budget due to the financial constraints from the Glazers, therefore the Red Devils will probably look to boost thier transfer pot by selling Winger and £17.5million signing Nani, with clubs in Portugal, Spain and Italy all showing interest. Berbatov is another player who has been linked with a move away however Ferguson will not be looking to sell the Bulgarian at a loss. Finally star defender Nemanja Vidic has been subject to much rumors regarding his future, with Real Madrid "circuling like Vultures" after the Serb had an argument with Ferguson ahead of the FA Cup defeat to Leeds United, and once you argue with Fergie, we all know there's only one winner.

So looking at who Man United could bring in; Firstly in goal, Igor Akinfeev and Manuel Neuer have all been linked, while in defence Simon Kjaer from Palermo and Jack Rodwell have been suggested.

In Midfield Hatem Ben Arfa from Marseille, Angel Di Maria who was subject from a bid including Nani going the other way, as well as David Silva or Juan Mata from Valencia all being linked to fill the left midfield position, while Franck Ribery has been linked to replace Valencia on the right.

Up front; David Villa, Sergio Aguero and Klass-Jan Huntelaar have all been linked to a possible strikers role.

However Fergie will never panick buy nor is he afraid to dip into the market if he feels the need i.e; Berbatov, Veron, Henrik Larsson. Also Man United fans need to remember that Johnny Evans and Owen Hargreaves are still to come back for the final third of the season, which will assist United in the title race. So dont expect any each shattering changes.

In: Akinfeev, Kjear, David Silva

Out: Foster (tottenham) Macheda (loan) Nani (AC Milan) Welbeck
