Manchester United certainly has quality attacking players but the majority of these players are stronger with their right foot which makes the attack somewhat unbalanced. Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata are the exceptions but neither of these players are natural wingers. The lack of a left-footed winger is something the club has been crying out for.

With Thauvin you have a 25-year old World Cup winner who is left-footed, tricky and has an eye for goals. Thauvin has done everything he can at Marseille and might be ready for a second crack in the Premier League. As Salah and De Bruyne have proven the Premier League the second time out could be one of great profit.

Interestingly the winger made his Premier League debut at Old Trafford vs Manchester United for Newcastle. Paul Pogba will certainly welcome a player who he has played with since he was a youngster. Thauvin and Pogba were both stars of France's 2013 U-20 World Cup winning team.
