Winter in Manchester - Who Should They Sign?


Winter in Manchester - How to solve The Devils’ Problems

lvg.jpg.a91aef225487b85ed081149a7e84cf6d

 

Winter is coming… (no pun intended)


 

With the January transfer window about being opened,we shall take a look at how Man Utd should handle the transfers necessary to helping them rise again in the second half of the season…if there are funds available that is... 

 

United,under Louis Van Gaal (who at the moment is being in a position no manager wants to be),are struggling to get good results and if this issue doesn't be addressed sooner,the season could potentially head for the worst,

 

Here are some of the issues…

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The Lack of Creative Spark

 

It's surprising to say,that at the start of January,United’s player with the most assists is without a doubt,Juan Mata,with……. 3……...assists,yup,that's right,that ain't no typo,unfortunately.

 

The United currently lacking a player with creativity comparable to those producing comics of any sorts or animated movies that usually leave you craving for more,Mata is certainly the player who you rely on to create chances for Rooney and Co to convert,but he isn't doing that at the moment.

 

Some statistics for you,United are the team with the most passes per shot with almost 80,talk about passing the ball around without the thought of attacking,dreadful to say the least.

 

So,who or what can solve United’s chance creating issues?

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The Creative Playmakers United Would Target

 

Nolito, The Spanish Talent?

nolito_celta.jpg.a8b6a90093fad87e04f60f2

There was a lot of speculation about Nolito and the interest he received from Catalan giants Barcelona,but is it possible for United to lure him away from Camp Nou and into The Theatre of Dreams?

 

Perhaps…


 

Bio

Full Name : Manuel Agudo Durán

Age : 29

Height : 1,72m

Weight : 70 kg

Nationality : Spanish

Position : AM F L/C

Market Value : £10.5m

Likely to Cost : £20-25m


 

What does the Statistics Say?

 

Nolito is an amazing player,both in creating chances and finishing them,he has 8 goals and 5 assists in 15 appearances this season for Celta.

 

He is known for his dribbling skills and averages 2.4 dribbles per game,he has made 36 successful dribbles this season thus far.

 

While United’s players lack a vision of spotting chances,Nolito is completely that as he makes and average of 2.9 key passes per game,while he also boasts a pass success rate of 67.7%,averaging almost 42 passes per game and making 390 accurate short passes this season.

 

He would also make the occasional cut inside to attempt shots,he takes a very decent 3.5 shots per game,usually with his trusty right foot.Of the 53 shots he's fired,23 of them were taken from outside the box,29 were in the penalty area and the one inside the 6-yard box.



 

Style Of Play

 

Nolito is a hard working player who loves to venture around the edges of the box on the left,either get a cross in or cut inside to take a shot .He's exceptionally good at dribbling and always looks to play through balls once he spots a yard of space for his teammate to run.He's also known as a set piece specialist.

Like his real life counterpart,his primary attributes are Dribbling,Passing,Shooting,Technique,Creativity,Decisions & Movement,though in my opinion his pace and stamina could be better.



 

The £35m Brazilian Wonderkid?

Felipe-Anderson-Lazio-Chelsea-CFC-Manche

Felipe Anderson was long tipped to be the NO.1 target for LVG in January,the 22-year old is currently plying his trade at Lazio in the Serie A,where his talent has caught the attention of major clubs around Europe.And it seems United are keen on ticking off this winger on their shopping list this Winter…


 

Bio

Full Name : Felipe Anderson Pereira Gomes

Age : 22

Height : 1,75m

Weight : 70 kg

Nationality : Brazilian

Position : AM RLC

Market Value : £14m

Likely to Cost : £35m +


 

What does the Statistics Say?

 

Felipe has put in some average performances throughout this season,scoring 5 and providing 1 in his 21 games so far,not the best and certainly doesn't serve his transfer value any justice.

 

He averages 2.3 dribbles per game and has completed 48 successful dribbles out of 93.

 

He is more of a winger than a forward as his shots per game aren't as much,an average of 1.5 shots per game,with a shot accuracy of 37.5%.

 

His passing is far more better,as he has a passing accuracy of 68.9%,making an average of 29 passes per game.



 

Style of Play


 

Felipe is a player who loves to take long shots whenever he sees an opening,usually cutting inside before attempting that.He is also a playmaker by trade,playing clever through balls,dribbling past opposition and also likes to put in a tackle.

His Stats are perfect for an InF like him,you can imagine how his attributes would be like after some IT, godlike to say the least.



 

The Saints’ No.10?

sadio-mane.jpg.648402ce76a3e810ab22502e5

Having already been a target in the Summer,LVG would sure love to launch another bid for Senegalese winger Sadio Mane,who is also the current record holder for the fastest hat trick in BPL history(2 mins 56 secs),for an estimated fee of £40m (too much?) that will possibly be too hard to resist for the Saints.


 

Bio

Full Name : Sadio Mane

Age : 23

Height : 1,75m

Weight : 69 kg

Nationality : Senegalese

Position : AM F RLC

Market Value : £12.5m

Likely to Cost : £30-40m


 

What does the Statistics Say?

 

Mane is a very key player for Southampton and their Premier League campaign,bagging 8 goals and 6 assists in 19 games and is quickly emerging as a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

 

Mane is a player who often runs by the byline on both flanks,whipping in bucket loads of dangerous crosses into the box,causing havoc amongst the opposition.He averages 0.6 crosses per game and 12 of his 40 crosses were able to find a teammate.

 

Mane has the best passing success rate amongst all of the players in this article,82.6% isn't too shabby.He makes 28.2 passes per game and has made a accurate short pass 427 times,outstanding.He also gets 1.4 key passes per game.

 

Mane is also a very skillful dribbler,managing 2.6 dribbles per game,49 of his 86 attempted dribbles were successful,a pretty decent ratio to be fair.

 

Of his 50 total shots,28 of them were fired by his right while 20 of them were hit by his left,proving his ability to use both feet while 2 of those shots were headed attempts.


 

Style of Play

 

Sadio Mane is a pacy winger who always draws foul from opponents with his wicked technique and movement.He does likes to play short passes and one-two’s.On the flip side though,he's very aggressive and gets a lot of bookings.

His starting attributes are not as eye-catching as yet,that crossing worries me to be honest but with some IT I'm sure he'll turn those high blues into greens.


 

Mahrez The Magician?

56869b4291c53_RiyadMahrezLeicesterCityvS

The best bargain ever? Signed for just a minimum amount of £400k from Le Havre in 2014,the young Algerian has certainly punched above his weight and is now rubbing it with the big boys.His string of amazing performances has definitely attracted United’s very own scouts,and the possibilities of a bid by United for him are very high…


 

Bio

Full Name : Riyad Mahrez

Age : 24

Height : 1,79m

Weight : 61 kg

Nationality : Algerian

Position : AM RLC

Market Value : £8m

Likely to Cost : £15-25m


 

What Does The Statistics Say?

 

In his 18 appearances for The Foxes so far,he netted 14 times and laid on 7 for his teammates,a pretty excellent run of form.

 

Mahrez has averaged 3.5 dribbles per game,much more than anyone on this list,and has successfully made 63 dribbles out of 104.

 

The small Algerian is the primary outlet of the team,averaging 1.9 key passes per game and 25.4 passes per game with a success rate of 72%.

 

He usually plays on the left with his ‘magical ‘ left foot,he often sends curling crosses which are hard to deal with into the box,he has an average of 1.2 crosses per game,21 of his 60 crosses were accurate.

 

His shot accuracy rate is 53%,a pretty impressive number,as 26 of his 49 shots were on target.

 

He's no stranger when it comes to taking set pieces,his free kicks are the deadliest and his penalties are dead accurate.


 

Style of Play

 

Mahrez is a player who makes a lot of key passes and through balls,his attacking talent is seen clearly whenever he launches an attack,his good with the ball at his feet and takes long shots when necessary.


 

In FMM

Screenshot_2016-01-01-16-32-52-06.thumb.

He is the perfect winger for you,although his attributes aren't fully grown yet,otherwise he'd be a world beater.But IT always does the job.



 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


 

The Lack Of Goalscoring Threat

Southampton-vs-Manchester-United.jpg.746

When Depay and Martial arrived respectively,everyone was expecting a goal ridden season,yet they failed to live up to preseason expectations,along with underperforming Wayne Rooney,the trio have managed… 8…..so far,you might be starting to think something’s wrong with my keyboard,but no my keyboard is perfectly fine,the only thing wrong are them unable to use their goalscoring abilities and help the team.

 

In contrast,Mahrez and fellow partner Vardy has already bagged 29 goals between the two of them alone,you're starting to feel United played the trio at defence…

 

A key factor behind this lack of attacking threat,is because LVG playing Martial and Rooney incorrectly. Don’t get what I mean?

 

I'll tell you this,

 

In LVG’s current system,he's playing Rooney as a second striker,also known as a Deep Lying Forward,which obviously indicates that Rooney will sit much deeper on the pitch and the team will lose his attacking flair up front.

 

While on the other hand,young Martial,is having problems playing up front as he's the lone striker,having just arrived from a not so tough French Ligue 1,anyone would certainly have problems playing in the much more physically demanding league in the BPL,which is the reason Martial can't even hit a barn door at the moment.

 

Onto Depay,nothing much needed to say,he's still struggling to hit the ground running,he hopefully might if given some more first team opportunities in the very near future.

Now,some players to solve this issue…


 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The Mighty Frontmen United Should Sign


 

The Belgian Beast?

2015_11_24_6336.thumb.jpg.e2ad84f6f9977b

Romelu Lukaku is a very prolific goalscorer and has already reached 50 club goals,and at the age of 22,he's just showing the world of what's about to come.Securing the mighty Belgian would already become some kind of achievement for United,let alone his performances….


 

Bio

Full Name : Romelu Menama Lukaku

Age : 22

Height : 1,90 m

Weight : 94 kg

Nationality : Belgian

Position : SC

Market Value : £20m

Likely to Cost : £40-50m



 

What does the Statistics Say?

 

Lukaku is currently what everyone know as ‘Beast Mode’ with his 8 match goalscoring run coming to an end against Newcastle.He has found the back of the net 15 times in 19 appearances for the club.

 

His shots per game is 3.6. He has a total of 68 shots,with a accuracy rate of 41%,as 28 of those shots were on target,23 were off target,4 hit the woodwork and 17 were blocked.

 

Lukaku uses his strong left foot more,hitting 40 shots with it,while 18 with his right,he also had 10 headed shots.


 

Style of Play

 

Lukaku is a proven goalscorer with his incredible finishing and composure in front of goal.He has a big stature and often uses his physical advantage to out muscle defenders and get a headed attempt.


 

In FMM

Screenshot_2016-01-01-16-33-10-70.thumb.

Lukaku is already given a bunch of amazing attributes at the start of the game and would make the perfect striker you could possibly have.



 

Vardy…. The Record Breaker?

564b54606c115_GettyImages495104208.jpg.8

Earlier on this season,Vardy broke the Premier League record for most consecutive games scored against of all teams,United.But United didn't mind,they're now planning to launch a double raid for Leicester’s duo,Vardy & Mahrez. But Ranieri will surely be reluctant to let go of the team’s priced assets,or will he?


 

Bio

Full Name : Jamie Richard Vardy

Age : 28

Height : 1,78 m

Weight : 76 kg

Nationality : English

Position : SC

Market Value : £10m

Likely to Cost : £25-30m


 

What does the Statistics Say?

 

Vardy is an out and out goalscorer whose form this season has attracted the likes of Chelsea,Manchester City and United,etc. He has found the net 15 times in 19 games.

 

His shots per game are 3.4. He has a total of 65 shots,with 31 being on target,21 being off target,3 hitting the woodwork and 13 being blocked . That's a shot accuracy of 48%.

 

Of his 65 shots,37 of them were hit by his right foot,21 from his left and 7 headed attempts.



 

Style of Play

 

He is a very pacy striker who loves to harass the opponents on and off the ball,pouncing on loose balls and finishing it. He is also very good at holding on the ball for as long as possible until he spots a teammate to pass to. He does like to do flick ons for teammates and is very effective in terms of contributing to the team defensively.


 

In FMM

Screenshot_2016-01-01-16-33-22-79.thumb.

To be honest,SI should've gave Vardy a better attribute boost,but nevertheless,he's still a very deadly striker with an eye for goal.



 

Hurri - Kane?

media_8a8ef500-3fc5-11e5-908a-0193dca054

Harry Kane has been somewhat a formality for Spurs this past two seasons,he's banging goals for fun as long as White Hart Lane are concerned,although a move to bitter rivals might seem unlikely,but if United can splash the cash,why not?


 

Bio

Full Name : Harry Edward Kane

Age : 22

Height : 1,83 m

Weight : 65 kg

Nationality : English

Market Value : £18m

Likely to Cost : £35-50m




What Does The Statistics Say?

Kane has 16 goals in his 24 appearances,also grabbing 2 Assists.

 

He averages 3.6 shots per game,of his 86 shots in total,39 of them were on target,20 were off target and 27 were blocked. That's an accuracy rate of 45%.

 

He uses his right foot the most,with 66 shots,while he managed 12 with his left and 8 with his head. 

 

Style of Play

Kane is a strong forward who has a lot of composure in front of goal and has deadly finishing,he can take long shots and get headers in too. He's also very reliable when helping the team defensively. 

 

In FMM

Screenshot_2016-01-01-16-33-38-39.thumb.

He's already a world class striker with some more years later he could certainly be the real deal. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Other Areas

 

Although I can't cover all areas of the team that needs strengthening,I can list them out with some honorable mentions. 

 

Left Back

- Ryan Bertrand, £20m

- Bruno Martins Indi, £15m

 

Centre Back

- Aymeric Laporte, £35m

Great work, a really enjoyable read. Not sure a winger is really needed, I would say the main issue is United cannot put the ball in the net and are relying a lot on De Gea. They need leaders at the back so a central defender like Hummels and a striker to put in front of Rooney seems the best options.

Hala my Friend. This is pure class.Im sure a lot of time was invented in this, and I know you're not a Utd fan. The creativity part can easily be solved, with Mahrez(I am taking sides,he's played amazing) I also remember something about a 140M+ spectulated bid for Neymar. For The Attack, I think either Vardy or Kane. The problem also lies in the defence. With one proper keeper, try need another decent replacement. I loved this :D words can't define how awesome this was

as a man utd fan, i think the best thing MU should fix is their defense,they need a leader in the heart of the defense, a solid and an experienced player just like Vidic in SAF's era.

a no and yes.

Winger is not a problem in MU squad, because they have players like valencia, depay, young. The problem is how LVG use them to bring their best fullest potential, which i didnt see in this half of the season

yes, they need a striker with lust of goal and a lot of experience. we have martial, but he lacks the experience, and with the pressure from many side that expects him to scores in every match, it will be pretty hard. we should buy a striker, but still gives the minute of play martial deserved

in my opinion, this is the list of the defender they should try to buy

1. Mats Hummels

2.Andrea Ranocchia

3. Ezequiel Garay

IMO, united need a strong DM and a passion manager.

United have ctreativity, but no passion now. They need play quick  and to get a strong DM to support defense.

As a Man U fan, I agree with everything said. The team desperately needs veterans in both attack and defense who are leaders. Martial and Rooney just don't cut it unfortunately and the defense just isn't cutting it. We'll just have to wait and see who van Gaal purchases in the January transfer window. Hopefully he'll be smart and buy players that can challenge in form Tottenham, Leicester, Arsenal, Man City.

Good work here mate! Really enjoyable read, I agree they need a decent striker but again I would say a defender is top of the list for me, great work nevertheless ????

What is this? Fix their defence? Their defence have been the most solid thing this year, yea yea, "better defence"

Nice work though :)

Nice work :) 

United's squad and style of play is a joke, they would be nothing without DDG. He got them top four last season and every game he pulls a world class save that saves them. 

The defense has done well yet it's overrated, it's doing so well due to having two holding players in midfield. Take the holding midfielders away and Smalling becomes less than he's hyped as. However that's not enough when mistakes happen, especially when you can't score. 

The attack is where the issues lie though as Rooney is washed up, Depay has a terrible attitude and Martial is a kid with too much pressure. 

The signings suggested here are good on paper and in game but none are practical for in real life in January. In the summer I could see some of these happening but I can't see any player highlighted here moving in January. Most are at clubs doing better than United and with a brighter future while the others would cost amounts United won't pay. The Leciester boys won't leave, Kane and Spurs are storming it, Everton would want 40-50m for Lukaku, Mane I could see happening but they couldn't get it done in last summer so why would they sell now.

Couldn't agree more with you. A joke it was this season. I think @HashtagTatica thinks it's great becoz of the names there. It isn't, the best player we have is like Ashez said DDG. If LVG wanted to play defence then he should have gotten world class defenders.

As much as I am a Rooney fan, he is nothing more than a backup and it is time for him to move to America. Depay needs to work on that attitude and this has been brought up b4 as well, Martial is a kid.

Actually, this is the part I have to disagree with you Ash. Man Utd have spent 80+M and I remember that Adidas had boosted them with a billion. So they got plenty left, if they could waste 56 on Martial,I think they can waste 50-60 of 30M worth Lukaku. Leicester won't let hem go but if a 70-80M duo bid came up, Leicester would have to agree. Money can buy everything. Even friends tbh. Mane is the most likely and if the 25M goes across, Southampton will be tempted agree.

well its just like @Ashez said mate, our defenses are holding well because our holding players is doing well defensively, but not offensively IMO.

We cant really hope DDG to always play great and save a lot of save, we should fix the defense in front of him, so our goal will be more secure more than ever

Plenty left yet in stupid amounts of debt and no guarantee of European income next year. 

70-80m for the Leciester duo is laughable! The pairs value would only be 45 n even that's pushing it!  However them two are on the verge of creating history, why would they give that up to join a mid table side with uncertainty around the manager? As I said maybe in the summer but those two would be beyond stupid to jump ship this window, especially to a sinking club like United. They could win the league or get CL next season while United's greatest hopes are top 4. 

I'm sure you could get Lukaku with a bid of 50m but panic buying isn't what the club needs and look how good your big money flops have been recently. You're in this situation because you threw money around on utter rubbish. Who was the last United signing who can generally be deemed as a success currently? Top my head you'd be going back to the Fergie days.

If Mane was achievable for 25m you'd have signed him in the summer.

Exactly mate. As much as it hurts me to say this, we have the most money in the whole world and LVG won't mind spending the whole kitty this season. I doubled the how much they should cost Coz we are so dam rich. That's the good part o a rich club, spend as much as u like.

Felipe Anderson would be a good signing, his stats are a bit worrying though. His pace down the right hand side along with his creativity would do us good. However, how long will that last. Van Gaal does not like Brazilians (rafael, rivaldo) and he loves to coach the creativity out of players. On a side note, if we do get felipe, our front line could be fml (felipe, martial, lingard). Lol. Now, mane would be an interesting signing, he's far too inconsistent for me, but he's PL proven.  These two are very realistic unlike the others you mentioned. Mahrez, lukaku and kane won't come in January. Vardy, won't come in January as well, but I don't even want him. Now the summer is gonna be interesting, I can see us raiding Everton for lukaku and stones. Stones I would prefer if we can't get both. Mahrez, really don't see the hype, unless he does better the second half  of the season and next season. Harry Kane would be an amazing signing. I do see us signing Kane and Stones in the summer because that is where we should be strengthening. 

Now lets see who we should get out in January:

Fellani - Hate him with passion, been found out since the chelsea game last season, waste of 28m)

Jones - Injured always, had potential, but don't see him ever reaching it, possibly  should remove him in the summer so that stones could get in

Valdes - Really pathetic how the club has treated a legendary keeper just because he refused to play with the kids when the parents were over. I want to keep him, but with LVG don't see that happening. Gonna cry when DDG gets injured and Romero becomes our backup.

Who should go out in the summer?:

Valencia - Useless, can't cross, have no sympathy.

Rooney -  Club Legend but 2 words: Six goals 

McNair- Gives LVG a reason to play 3 at the back...

Carrick -  Kinda club Legend , but past it and only passes backwards now.

Romero - Not even gonna give a reason.

Stones is the signing I want in the summer badly, only laporte, marquinhos and varane are better young defenders, however stones has much more potential then them.

Felipe Anderson would be a good signing, his stats are a bit worrying though. His pace down the right hand side along with his creativity would do us good. However, how long will that last. Van Gaal does not like Brazilians (rafael, rivaldo) and he loves to coach the creativity out of players. On a side note, if we do get felipe, our front line could be fml (felipe, martial, lingard). Lol. Now, mane would be an interesting signing, he's far too inconsistent for me, but he's PL proven.  These two are very realistic unlike the others you mentioned. Mahrez, lukaku and kane won't come in January. Vardy, won't come in January as well, but I don't even want him. Now the summer is gonna be interesting, I can see us raiding Everton for lukaku and stones. Stones I would prefer if we can't get both. Mahrez, really don't see the hype, unless he does better the second half  of the season and next season. Harry Kane would be an amazing signing. I do see us signing Kane and Stones in the summer because that is where we should be strengthening. 

Now lets see who we should get out in January:

Fellani - Hate him with passion, been found out since the chelsea game last season, waste of 28m)

Jones - Injured always, had potential, but don't see him ever reaching it, possibly  should remove him in the summer so that stones could get in

Valdes - Really pathetic how the club has treated a legendary keeper just because he refused to play with the kids when the parents were over. I want to keep him, but with LVG don't see that happening. Gonna cry when DDG gets injured and Romero becomes our backup.

Who should go out in the summer?:

Valencia - Useless, can't cross, have no sympathy.

Rooney -  Club Legend but 2 words: Six goals 

McNair- Gives LVG a reason to play 3 at the back...

Carrick -  Kinda club Legend , but past it and only passes backwards now.

Romero - Not even gonna give a reason.

Stones is the signing I want in the summer badly, only laporte, marquinhos and varane are better young defenders, however stones has much more potential then them.

 

Jones...

I agree of what u said but the choice of Nolito ............

Nolito is 28 years old now and if Barca wants to buy him too, I think he would choose Braca due Spain is his country

I think Pogba is great ,he wants to come back to united and he is still young!

However he isn't cheap but it is worth to buy him

Who said he wants to come back? He's said he's happy at Juve, and mentioning Man Utd will make him angry. The rare mistakes of Sir Alex has just made this guy into a superstar.

@PoPo1003 yes i agreed with you about the choice of Nolito, I don't think he will be a great player in ManUtd, remembering he's already 28 years old too, and about my own opinion that defense is the one we should fix

and yes, i agreed with @Risheek said, I think Pogba coming back to ManUtd is like only 5% , with addition it will be really pricey. 

Well thats football life, sometimes even the greatest manager can make mistakes, such as losing Pogba.

If you think that I was blaming SAF, I wasn't. He's my favourite manager. For Man U, money isn't an object. It does grow on trees. So many sponsors, Billion dollar Addidas, Pogba could com back, only if he wanted. All Man U needed to do, is pit a world record bid, and done!

no mate, im not saying that youre blaming SAF.

Im just saying my opinion that sometimes even the greatest manager can make mistake, thats all mate.

and I think buying Pogba with a world record bid for ManUtd right now is not the right option tbh, because our midfielder is not too shabby IMO

A center back back, a left back, a right winger, a striker, and yea... A new manager. 

Mourinho would oddly suit the personnel at united. Think about all those defensive mids and centerbacks to play as fullbacks ??

Mourinho is not the answer if Utd fans want attractive free flowing football. Mourinho will get you results but at the cost of money and style.

Utd have been guilty of not building a team but amassing players and the situation currently reminds me of Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool. Utd are playing a lot of their players out of position to suit of Van Gaal style. True you haven't got the quality of past teams but LVG is to blame as he doesn't know what style he wants to play. Take for example Blind, is he a DMC, LB or CD? We don't know the answer to this because we all want versatile players who can adapt. Guess what if I want my electrics looking at I don't ring a plumber. Some players can adapt but others are just not that bright and Utd do have a wealth of talent which isn't being used to the full potential. Play a flexible system, say for example, 4-2-3-1. If you are on top push on the wingers to make a 4-3-3 and get fullbacks bombing on, if not going your way drop the wingers deeper in a support role.

Play Martial up top, Mata or Rooney behind (pick the best one, don't make room) pulling the strings, Young and Valencia wide, holding Mids two of four (Fellanini, Carrick, Schweinstiger, Schniederlin), Smalling and a.n.other CB and Blind and Darmian as full backs. Job sorted.
