10 Potential January Signings For Manchester United

David Moyes is facing his first January transfer window as the Manchester United manager in the new year, so here are 10 potential moves for the former Everton boss.

Asmir Begovic – Stoke

If I was David Moyes, which I’m not, I would be looking to draft in some competition for David De Gea. Begovic may be available as Stoke have Jack Butland in reserve, but United would surely have competition should they be interested.

Victor Valdes – Barcelona

We know the Spaniard won’t be at Barcelona much longer, and leaving the club it will either be to someone in his homeland or to a side near the top of European football. Manchester United meet the requirements of the latter, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the move happened.

Leighton Baines – Everton

I won’t go on about how much David Moyes wants the Everton full-back at Old Trafford, but for what it’s worth I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some sort of contact before Baines signed a new Toffees contract before a switch in the new year.

Ander Herrara – Athelic Bilbao

The media has reported that the Red Devils will be back in to try and secure a deal for the Spaniard after failing in their attempts during the summer. Watch this space.

Luka Modric – Real Madrid

Modric had a fine season last term after a shaky start which saw him linked him with numerous clubs away from the Spanish capital. Modric is exactly the type of player that Moyes needs in his squad, but whether a move is do-able I have no idea.

Yohan Cabaye – Newcaslte

Cabaye is currently in an awkward position at Newcastle after failing to get his move away from the club in the summer, and will surely make his exit at the soonest opportunity – which is January. Cabaye would fill a creative gap in the centre of the squad.

Robert Lewandowski – Borussia Dortmund

Although it’s widely expected that the Poland international will joing Bundesliga side Bayern Munich when his contract runs out this summer, he is free to talk to clubs in January and if United can sweet talk him then you never know.

Ilkay Gundogan – Borussia Dortmund

One of the most complete midfielders in Europe, the Germany international would solidify the United team instantly. He can operate as a defensive midfielder, a central midfielder or in an attacking position as a result of his incredible craft.

Ezequeiel Garay – Benfica

Although the United defence isn’t in particular need of reinforcements, the giant Argentine would be a brilliant addition, especially taking Rio Ferdinand’s age and Nemanja Vidic’s injury status into consideration.

Juan Mata – Chelsea

I have left the most controversial to last, but don’t shoot me for it. Juan Mata reportedly wants out of Chelsea, and Manchester United need a creative outlet to assist them to the title. There was talk of the Spaniard leaving in the summer, but we will have to wait and see how the first half of the season unfolds.
