Man Utd Transfers: 5 Ball Playing Defensive Midfielders To Target

From watching Manchester United this season, it€™s pretty clear that all is not right at the club. It appears that one of the problems they are having is adapting to David Moyes €“ and perhaps the different tactical approach that he wants to incorporate. One of the issues they are having is moving the ball from player to player; obviously the reason why is a matter of some debate. However, with the January transfer window open €“ Moyes will have some opportunity to address the problems with fresh acquisitions. Man Utd have had 55.5% of possession this season €“ which is only the seventh best record in the league; it€™s also been mentioned by many that the central midfielder is an area that needs attention urgently. Therefore, with all of that in mind €“ here is a look at some defensive midfielders that should be on the radar with strong passing and tackling skills. For this slideshow, the focus will be exclusively on Premier League players that might fancy a move to Old Trafford this month. This content will be a combination of opinion and stats from Who Scored. So, I hope you are all ready for another transfer window list€
