Forget Rakitic: Man Utd should go for this La Liga star instead

According to The Sun, Man United are interested in La Liga Star, Ivan Rakitic. However, The Football Manc Cave have picked out a player who might be a better target.

Barcelona wants to offload their midfielder and Man United wouldn’t be a bad shout. However, Barcelona is demanding around £35 million.

Man United could spend their money a little more wisely. Rakitic is a good player and it wouldn’t be a bad thing to see him at Old Trafford. I just think, if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for a La Liga option, there are better options.

Rakitic is more of a central midfielder who can attack and defend. Although, I think this particular winger would be more effective in a Man United shirt…

Gareth Bale

I know, his name has come up with links to Man United before. He has rejected their advances in the past and could possibly again.

However, it’s known that he is an ‘unwanted man,’ at the moment. His current team, Real Madrid don’t seem to want him.

He looks like a man who wants a change too. Man United might not be the place he ends up but it certainly wouldn’t be ground upon if they tried to tempt him to Old Trafford.

All Rounder

Bale is a hard-working individual. He puts everything into a game and is refreshing to watch.

Imagine what he could teach to some of the younger inexperienced Man United squad members. I truly think he would lead and motivate an underperforming Man United side.

It might take a lot to pull off signing him, although, weirder things have happened in football. Even if he doesn’t make a move to Manchester, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempting to sign him would make a bold statement.
