Man Utd need to spend 300m on these 2 stars to transform the team in January

Man United are in a position they haven’t been in for many a year. Probably not since the days of the infamous Denis Law back-heel which relegated the club.

Albeit things are not that bad, as we are only in the opening games of the season. However, things need to change and players need to come back from injury to turn the Red Devils fortunes around.

The January window, Solskjaer’s second chance at making this team his own, is going to prove pivotal.

Now in the summer window the message was loud and clear – gone of the days Man Utd are going to splash the cash in order to but their way to the top. Instead, it’s all about youth. This may have been a great plan at the time, however, things are very different already and in January Ed Woodward and his merry men need to get that cheque book wide open.

Following on from a Lee Sharpe interview on Talksport, he thinks his former side need at least 300m to make this team challenge again.

Two players they should use that ‘budget’ on, need to transform the team, like these two below…

Harry Kane

The 135m rated by Transfermarkt striker may very well see this as a step down from Tottenham. However, with the recent showings of his Spurs side, things are not exactly rosy in north London.

Man United need a proven Premier League striker. If OGS can sell Kane the vision, United have one of the deadliest strikers on their books that would surely catapult the reds up the table.

Let’s be honest he’s used to carrying a team for many a year.

Bruno Fernandes

The Sporting Lisbon man is already amongst the goals and assists in Liga Nos. Four goals and four assists in 6 games.

Rated at 49.5m by Transfermarkt, Fernandes comes cheap and could be the missing link between midfield and attack. With United looking lacklustre in creativity this season.

His stats so far read – 10 games, 7 goals, 5 assists in all competition. Solskjaer missed a trick not bringing him in, in the summer and can’t afford to miss out again.
