Manchester United keen on signing Will Hughes in January

According to the Daily Mail, David Moyes is eager to bolster his midfield options come January, and top of that list is Derby County starlet Will Hughes. The 50-year old Scot recently claimed that buying in January isn’t ideal,  but making a couple of decent signings could be the difference between winning and losing the title.

Will Hughes, 18, is predominantly left-footed and has already made fifty appearances for Derby and four England U21s caps, but he missed last nights U21s game due to a groin injury.

Derby Manager Steve McClaren said:

‘Our job is to make sure he makes it.

‘Eventually he will be too good. What we need behind that is players coming through to replace him.’

Although a potentially brilliant player, we need someone who can come in and make a difference straight away. Who that player is I’m not too sure as most of the world class midfielders have either already moved to a new club in the summer, or are happy at the club they are at now. Ander Herrera was a target in August, but he’s struggling to get in the Athletic Bilbao team as of late let alone Manchester United!
