Manchester United endured one of their worst seasons in the history of the club as the Old Trafford club finished sixth in the Premier League table. The club failed to win any trophy this season and also failed to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a big job ahead in the next few months as he has to figure out a way to restore the glory at Manchester United. While getting a couple of defenders and a talented forward will be a priority in the transfer window, the midfield is one area of the game which also requires attention.
The midfielders of Manchester United have been far too inconsistent on the field and have failed to complement neither the defense nor the attack in many of the games. That has led to Manchester United becoming a much less threatening team than they used to be earlier. Apart from Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, Manchester United's midfield looks weak with the likes of Fred, Andreas Pereira, and Nemanja Matic the only other midfielders in the squad.
The club is also yet to replace Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini and hence, Manchester United definitely make a midfield signing this summer. On that note, here are 3 midfielders the club can sign in the summer.
#3 Sean Longstaff
Manchester United is one team that excelled with homegrown players at the core of the squad. However, this aspect has been missing in the team for the last few seasons and this has affected the identity of the squad to an extent.
Sean Longstaff is a 21-year-old English footballer who has impressed at Newcastle United this season with his skills as a midfielder. The youngster has made an impact on the squad soon after his debut and is expected to become a regular next season.
A player with exactly the similar attributes is required by Manchester United to build a strong core for the upcoming seasons. Longstaff is likely to come cheap and hence, Ed Woodward must sanction a move for this youngster.
