Manchester United Ready To Make Double Swoop For La Liga Wingers, But Where Would They Fit In?

Manchester United currently have Antonio Valencia, Wilfried Zaha, Ashley Young and Adnan Jaznuzaj to choose from the the wings, as well as Ryan Giggs and Shinji Kagawa who can both play there, but Sports Direct News are reporting that another two wide men are now top of their priority list. The duo are Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria and Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez, but where they fit into the set up?

While Di Maria is all about running at defenders and using his skill to beat a man, Sanchez is typically about speed, movement and quick, sharp passes to exploit the space in the wide areas.

Sanchez is the type of player who strives off his attacking team-mates, ghosting between the lines and cutting inside to have a pop at goal, while Di Maria will hug the touchline and whip balls into the box – something which Wayne Rooney could benefit from.

I would suggest that if either or them, or even both, were to arrive at Old Trafford then they would be first choices straight away. Januzaj would probably be used as third choice or even tucked inside slightly, while it could end Young’s time at the club.

Zaha is yet to feature so it’s difficult to tell what his status at Old Trafford is, and Valencia’s is leaving much to be desired, though he would be a useful player to hang onto.

United fans, where would they fit in?
