This Manchester United squad has holes all over the field, it’s up to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to prioritise the Red Devils’ biggest needs.
Personally, I’m looking at the midfield as probably the most pressing matter, particularly with Ander Herrera leaving and Marouane Fellaini yet to be replaced although he left in January.
It’s a position that the club have somewhat neglected over the years and now we’re in a tough situation. However, according to Mexican media outlet Los Pleyers, translated by The Sun, United are ‘keeping close tabs’ on Monterrey midfielder Carlos Rodriguez.
Furthermore, the Old Trafford club had scouts at a recent game and were spotted speaking to Monterrey officials – presumably about the 22-year-old midfielder Rodriguez.
Having already earned a Mexico cap and helping his side win both the Central and North American version of the Champions League, this boy clearly has pedigree – although question marks will always remain until he tries his hand in the Premier League.
It’s a big step up in quality and for one so young it may take Rodriguez time to adapt. Again, though, I praise United for looking at the hidden gems rather than going for the big-name, marquee signing that has hurt them so badly over the last few years.
In all likelihood, Rodriguez would only be coming in as a squad player at first anyway, so he would have time on his side.
