Midfield is amongst Manchester United’s several pressing needs ahead of the January transfer window.
Somewhat typically, a whole host of names have been linked with a potential Old Trafford switch. However, over the last 24 hours, a new name has been thrown into the ring; Emre Can.
According to Tuttosport, the ex-Liverpool man is ready to leave Juventus following a lack of playing time and his agent has already made contact with several European clubs.
Furthermore, the 25-year-old midfielder sees United as his preferred destination at this point in time. Apparently, he could be viewed as a replacement for a certain Paul Pogba…
After leaving Liverpool for Juventus on a free transfer, it’s fair to say that things haven’t quite worked out as Can would have planned.
However, that doesn’t take away from his immense talent. Can is a top-quality midfielder who’d improve our squad no-end. He’s got two great feet, excellent vision and more mobility than the majority of our current crop of midfielders.
The fact that he has fallen out of favour under Maurizio Sarri also plays into our hands. Can could be available for cheaper than he’s actually worth, and it seems as though he wants the move so what’s not to like?
