Manchester United started the 2018-19 season poorly, which subsequently led to the sacking of the former manager, Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils appointed their former player, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the caretaker manager for the rest of the season, and they are yet to lose a game under the Norwegian.

The Red Devils are now sixth on the Premier League table, just six points adrift of the Champions League qualification places. They would now be looking forward to continuing their unbeaten run in the league, putting pressure on their rivals.

However, there are still some improvements needed in the Red Devils' squad, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could use the January transfer window as an opportunity to further enhance his team.

Right on this note, here is the list of three players Manchester United could sign in January, in order to finish in the top-four.


#3 Florian Thauvin

With Alexis Sanchez struggling with his form at the moment, Manchester United are short on the wings and need a new winger to take their team forward. Marseille's Florian Thauvin is among the most in-form wide-men in the world currently, and would be a great addition for the Red Devils.

Florian Thauvin is a superb dribbler and is composed in front of goal. He possesses great pace and loves to cut inside into good shooting positions. He scored 22 league goals from the wing last season, and was also a part of France's FIFA World Cup 2018 winning squad.

The 25-year-old is in a great form this season as well, and has registered 11 goals and 4 assists in 17 Ligue 1 games.

The French international struggled to impress during his previous spell in the Premier League with Newcastle United. However, he has improved a lot since joining Marseille in 2016, and now looks ready to showcase his talents in the English top division.
