The January transfer window is now just hours away, and with Louis van Gaal still in charge, it remains to be seen whether the Dutchman will be given money to spend in January. However that hasn’t stopped him from eyeing up targets, and the latest reports come out of the Daily Mail.
The English media outlet say that Manchester United are closely monitoring the situation of Everton’s latest starlet, Joe Williams. He is a regular in the Toffees’ U21 side, and the midfielder is turning the heads of the top clubs in the country.
It comes back to the fact that Manchester United need proven quality at this point in time. And although Williams could go on to be one of the best players in the league, it is a huge gamble at this stage, and he wouldn’t be easy to prise away from Goodison either.
