Manchester United January Transfer Window Predictions: What fans want and what will eventually happen?

Manchester United fans are not happy with Louis Van Gaal and need a dose of January Transfer activity to cheer them up. But will that happen? We take a look:

Currently ranked 5th, no one is quite sure where Manchester United will eventually finish this season. They are certainly not good enough to challenge for the title, but seeing the inconsistency from rest of the challengers, United may just creep in at the very last moment.

Perhaps on the more realistic terms, United are a good bid to end in the Top4, but one gets a feeling that they need couple of attackers to have a strong finish to the season.

What the fans want in January Transfer Window?

Having been linked with Felipe Anderson and Sadio Mane, many United fans (including me) might have drafted the two players in their FIFA 16 squad. Having said that, splashing £30million or more in January might not coincide with Louis Van Gaal’s philosophy.

Among others linked with a move to Old Trafford are James Rodriguez, Neymar and Edinson Cavani in a mouth-watering transfer possibilities.

Who will Man United sign in January transfer window?

Before you get excited, let me tell you that seeing the likes of Cavani, Neymar or James will have to wait until the next summer. However, for now, United can do with a player like Anderson, who is keen on the move and has the ability to change the course of a football match.

Funds are of no concern to Van Gaal and United, it is more down to whether the manager wants to add anyone new to the squad, as we have seen in the past, it is not easy to play as per Van Gaal’s philosophy.

Players take time to adjust to his demands and that could be the biggest stumbling block in signing any one new in the January transfer window. As for next summer, expect all hell to break lose with Manchester United determined to win back their pedigree as being among Premier League’s most dominant force.
