Man Utd are currently 5th in the Premier League, just 3 points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. The signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon has proved to be beneficial for the Red Devils. With the transfer window about to re-open, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking for young players who can help him rebuild the team. We have listed some players from La Liga who would be a perfect fit for United and help the club get back to its glory days.
At just 20 years of age, winger Ferran Torres has established himself as one of Valencia’s most significant players. He is an energetic and highly exhilarating winger who takes chances in the final third and makes things happen. Being confident with both feet, he enjoys the flexibility of being explosive on either flank. His vision, technique and speed control make his team stand out. Big clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Liverpool have also shown interest in this young prospect. His skills could bring out the classic United style of play- explosive counter-attacks and heavy use of wingers.
This 20-year-old Real Valladolid centre back has been praised by many experts and coaches. Although Valladolid are currently 15th in the league, his performance, throughout this season, has been exceptional. He is seen as the perfect fit for the football played in England because he is tall and physically well built. Manchester United’s defence will become tough to beat if he links up with skipper Harry Maguire. Valladolid has a release clause of just £10m, which is well within United’s budget.
Real Sociedad have become a highly exciting team to watch this season, thanks to young players like 22-year-old winger Mikel Oyarzabal. While he has shown a desire to continue at Sociedad beyond this season, at this age, his playing peak is still far away. Signing for Manchester United could prove beneficial for both the player and the club. He will get a chance to prove himself in the world’s best league, while United will get a very talented player who could solve their attacking concerns and help bring in silverware.
Having made his debut for Villareal in 2018, Chukwueze has seen a quick rise to prominence in the first team. He has impressed with his speed and directness. He has scored 12 goals and provided 7 assists in 68 games since his debut for the first team. He signed a new contract in October which included a €100m release clause. Although an expensive player, if nurtured, he can turn into one of the world’s best and wreak havoc on the opposition. His playing style would be ideal for United’s counter-attacking style. Clubs like Chelsea and Liverpool are also interested in signing him.
Signing any of these talented players could prove to be highly advantageous for United. These young players bring a lot to the table and can easily turn around any game. They will also complement the playing style of the current squad and bring the very best of counter-attacking football back to Old Trafford.
