5 Central Midfielders Who Could Solve Manchester United’s ‘Problem’

As the nation harks on about Manchester United’s midfield ‘problem’ here are 5 players that could aid that.

1) Andrea Pirlo – Juventus

Yes, that’s right – the European pass-master could be available for a move in January. His contract is quickly running out and it has been suggested that he is to be moved on. With him and Michael Carrick in the centre with Shinji Kagawa or Marouane Fellaini in front of them, United’s problem would be solved.

2) Xabi Alonso – Real Madrid

Forget his ties with Liverpool and his current injury, the Spaniard has been rumoured around the continent for a while now as Carlo Ancelotti goes about moulding his own squad at Real Madrid.

3) Marco Verratti – Paris Saint-Germain

Linked with United in the past, the young midfielder has the energy, technique and intellgence to make a real difference at Old Trafford.

4) Ander Herrera – Athletic Bilbao

After David Moyes failed with a swoop in the summer, the La Liga midfielder is said to be a target again in the new year. A more attacking option than the others suggested, but he is also happy to chip in with defensive duties.

5) Riccardo Montolivo – AC Milan

A box-to-box midfielder with the technical ability to match the best in the world, Montolivo is the man who I would like to see at Old Trafford.
