Obviously, Manchester United’s greatest problem right now is lack of goals, pace and creativity. The team is struggling to get goals and it’s only goals that can win you a title.
The typical Man United side possesses a goal threat in almost every department; from defence to the front-line. Goal scoring responsibility doesn’t lie on the shoulder of one striker as goals can be scored by virtually any one in the squad.
In the current Manchester United squad, one cannot help but wonder where the goals would come from if Anthony Martial doesn’t score.
For United to be considered as favourites for the EPL title, they need players that can average 20 goals a season in the league. So here are the 3 candidates.
The Welsh international is no stranger to life in the Premier league. He started as a left back for spurs before he was converted as a left attacking winger. In his last season in England; he won the PFA player of the year and the young PFA player of the season.
His pace and ability to score would be vital for the Red Devils cause. Bale can guarantee 15-20 goals a season in the league alone and would be vital if United can snatch a deal for him as he is the kind of player Louis Van Gaal has been craving for; he’s got pace and can create chances.
A player with so much flare, lightening pace and good goal returns, the Brazilian would be an ideal addition to the already unproductive United wing players.
The Red Devils need another central defender in the squad, Phil jones and Marcos Rojo are injury prone while Daley Blind is not a natural central defender. United’s season may crumble totally if Chris Smalling gets a serious injury. Marquinhos is a good defender and can cope with the physical demands of the Premier League.
With all these players, United can be sure favourites in the bookmakers odd to win the league this season.
