3 January Signings That Manchester United Need In Order To Compete For trophies This Season

Manchester United have not won the premier league title for 8 years and there are currently not far behind Chelsea and Liverpool in 1st and 2nd on the league standings.

Their current form is terrible, but it's not too late, the January transfer window is around the corner, they need to strengthen some areas if they want to win trophies this season. In this article we'll be looking at the three January signing they need to compete for EPL, Domestic and European trophies this season.

Erling Haaland

With Edinson Cavani likely to leave in January and Cristiano Ronaldo aging, it wouldn't be bad to get a forward in January. Erling Haaland has impressed this season, he's still young, proven and will serve United for many more years to come, The Norwegian tactician knows him very well and can decide to deploy him alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Signing Haaland will guarantee goals and will relieve Cristiano Ronaldo of some goal scoring burden.

This should be an easy deal for United considering the fact that Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku last summer with Real Madrid and Barcelona having financial issues.

2 - Kalvin Phillps: 

Scott McTominay and Fred have not been convincing enough this season, they look suspect anytime their given the chance by Ole, make wrong passes, errors leading and many more, That is the reason Manchester United should strengthen that position by going for Kalvin Phillps who is a good defensive minded player. He's good at tackling, very strong in the air and will also come at a affordable price for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, unlike West Ham Star, Declan Rice Who is valued at 100M.The Englishman would make the midfield more strong, formidable and very hard to penetrate, it would also give Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes more freedom to create more goal scoring chances for the team.

Niklas Sule

We've seen how United have struggled to keep clean sheet this season, even with the addition of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, Lindelof isn't strong defensively, Eric Bailly is Injury-prone. The addition of the Niklas Sule will add more stabillty and experience.
