5 players Manchester United should sign this summer
Despite reaching the semi-finals of the FA cup and currently in the second position in the Premier League, United have often been accused of a boring and defensive approach.
Having been unable to mount a serious title challenge since the 2012/13 season, both manager and club are on the lookout for new additions to help change United’s fortunes. With manager Jose Mourinho visibly dissatisfied with his squad, here are five players who could add some serious firepower to the United ranks.
#5 - Jorginho
Much of United’s tepid and slow build-up play has been due to a lack of a deep-lying playmaker, which could be addressed by Jorginho. The diminutive yet dynamic Italian international is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the Serie A.
During the 2016-17 season, Jorginho averaged 98 passes per game, the highest in Europe’s top five leagues, with an accuracy of 92.6%. With an average of 2.3 tackles and 2 interceptions per game, he would be an ideal choice to line up in a three-man midfield alongside Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.
