First let’s take a look at a player recently linked to Man Utd, Amadou Haidara. Haidara is a true Red Bull midfielder that would slot into Manchester United’s midfield. Energy and work rate are his standout attributes but he’s aso technically very strong with an excellent level of tactical intelligence. He uses this tactical intelligence to offer balance to his side, often moving into less threatening positions to create holes in the opposition’s shape. But if he isn’t tracked and receives, his crisp short passing allows him to either keep the ball moving and recycle possession or play good, line breaking passes into advanced teammates.

Next up we’ll take a look at a true box to box midfielder in Franck Kessie. The AC Milan player could come at a bargain with his contract expiring in 2022. He’s very disciplined in possession and sticks to his task. Despite possessing a good passing range, Kessie generally keeps things short and simple, moving the ball around and giving good control to his side, but when the chance comes, he’s got the talent to flip the tempo and play neat line breaking passes or long switches of play. The midfielder is averaging over four progressive passes per 90 in Serie A this season but is still completing nearly 92% of his passes.

Next up we look at one of the standout players in the current Ajax side, Edson Alvarez.
I’ve watched a lot of Ten Hag’s Ajax this season and Alvarez gets my seal of approval, a really great player in the making. Standing at just under 6 foot 2, Alvarez is a surprisingly elegant footballer. He’s got a very similar skill set to Rodri. He’s more mobile than the City man but his strengths lie in his technical ability and reading of the game. He’s integral to Ten Hag’s fluid system as he needs to be ready to provide cover to anywhere on the pitch with players interchanging positions. Despite the huge task, Alvarez excels and almost always seems to know where he’s needed most and seems to move before the ball needs regaining, which says a lot about his reading of the play.

    Is this a man United channel?

  2. Yoslo on May 10, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    5 players who wont fix the main issue, having Maguire in the lineup… As long as Maguire is the captain United will never ever win anything again..

  3. Haru Krentz on May 10, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Ditch 4-2-2-2. It doesnt work and will never work. Also play Shaw over Telles ffs!

  4. Jordan Quant on May 10, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Get haidara in January and then kessie in the summer

  5. L33 on May 10, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Going to be a very interesting transfer window for us 🤔 can be up to 10 players out the door on loan or sold and I hope a few in 🤞 and I believe that will happen 100% now we have a football person in Ralf finally at the club we have a good squad at the moment to be honest in my opinion we can play so much better time is the key ⏳

  6. منوعات on May 10, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Correct need 2 midfeilders but better to get Bissouma and Phillips or Neves

  7. Hrishikesh Parab on May 10, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Just get Ibraahim Sangare 😂

  8. Jens Reimers on May 10, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Yeah, buy those lads and 6 months later they are part of the shit-show with no progression in their career. If I was them I would go to another club – and not that dying dinosaur that your shitty club is…

  9. Red Timez on May 10, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    A CDM, CM and CB

  10. Ingolf on May 10, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Bellingham, Tielemans and Rafinha are 3 players Liverpool are linked with. Liverpool do need a midfielder with an eye for goal. we haven’t had one since Wijnaldum left in the summer. Harvey Elliott was gonna be that man, but he’s out for the season, so I’m hoping we sign one of these.

  11. 50 Shades of Skittles on May 10, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    I’m more interested in who we should get rid of. Plenty of deadwood right now at United!

  12. Ronin on May 10, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    United should approach this Jan transfer window sensibly , efficient way to approach would be –

    1.Focusing on SELLing or LOAN OUT unnecessary/under performing squad players (Jones, Mata, Matic, Lingard, Martial and Lindelof)

    2. United Lacks in 3 positions considering the new system implemented by Ralf Ragnick – (CDM,RB and CB)
    Best options would be – CDM -> Convert AWB into ball winner who can win the ball effortlessly, while add a versatile player E.Alvarez
    RB -> Even though Dalot plays well under Ralf at times he gets exposed by top wingers. In order to solve this issue United should look for a experienced RB (Trippier – 6 months more in the contract)
    CB -> United clearly needs an experienced CB to guide the defence similar to what Thiago Silva did for Chelsea, ideal player for this role would be Diego Godin (35y) still performs well in Seria A. While getting him, promote Mengi to senior squad so he can learn a lot for Varane/Godin.

    3. After JAN transfer United Squad should look like this (4-2-2-2)

    FWS – Rashford/ Ronaldo/ Cavani/ Mason/ Elanga
    CAMs (two 10’s) – Bruno/Pogba/Sancho/Donny
    CMS (Pivot) – Fred/Scott
    CDMS (Pivot) – E.Alvarez /AWB
    CB’s – Varane/ D.Godin/Bailly/Maguire/Mengi
    LB’s – Shaw/Telles
    R’B’s – K.Trippier /Dalot
    GK’s – De gea/ Deano/ Heaton

    (If possible promote few more Academy talents into the squad !!)

    4. Summer United should focus on getting Erling Haalnad when Cavani leaves !!

  13. Education Tube on May 10, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Instead do a video on ""5 players United should sell""

  14. Morten Andersen on May 10, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Kalvin Phiilps is a Leeds lad, he is never going to switch to man United because of his family and the rivalry.. i expect a bit more background check when you Pick out players or just shorten the list to actual relevant players like the two first players you mentioned. Keep it up but enough with the clickbait/nonrelevant transfers

  15. Tee Miles on May 10, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Kelvin Philips will be best

  16. nickraoyj on May 10, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Why didn’t you include Kamara? The way I see it, he’s got the best possibility of coming over, way more so than the majority on this list.

  17. Brayan Solis on May 10, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Alvarez is the man for the job

  18. LJ64 on May 10, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Do Arsenal Next.

  19. Jonathan Pulido on May 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Lessgoooo Edson! El Machín!

  20. Ronnison Choonoo on May 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    What about the players they should sell 😂🤣 I think it would be alot more than 5

  21. Arnold Lauth Linde on May 10, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    They only need to sign ndidi

  22. Martins Gravelsins on May 10, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    why just fife? how about 50?

  23. Just An Another Boy on May 10, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    They should go for someone like Coutinho or Gavi if the Barca are willing to get into negotiation.

  24. Chimdinma Nwagbo on May 10, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    After yesterday’s game Man utd should probably spend their energy getting a replacement for mcguire. It is clear that the other players don’t trust him as the the last man. Everybody rushes out to provide him more "support" exposing their line. Bellingham would be an excellent signing, but we have to ask ourselves why didn’t he come when he was in Birmingham and has the situation really changed since then for him to prompt a move.

  25. Krishiv Mehra on May 10, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    In this video you talked about more of a advanced six / Box to Box mid mids which obviously United needs but I think a proper number six is needed who can protect the 2 cbs , everyone is talking about these sets of player who are good Box mid with great workrate but I want a pure CDM some one like matic / rodri / Fabiano

  26. Sunstridr on May 10, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Interesting video, but I have to say there are some things off about the Edson Alvarez section.

    1. Ajax simply don’t sell starters during the winter window, so to put an Ajax starter here is just wishful thinking.

    2. Alvarez is NOT the kind of player that you are describing, his technical ability is nowhere near the level you are attributing him with. He is constantly slowing the tempo, is often avoided as a pass option and if he attempts to do more advanced passes (such as a through ball or cross pass) it’s 50/50 if it will be close enough to actual considered "on target".
    He is a centre-back playing a destroyer role in midfield not a technical dm. And this is not that hard to see if you have watched Ajax as you say you have.

  27. Guerrilla Games on May 10, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    And 5 players he should sell

  28. John Doe on May 10, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I really want Edson Alvarez idk if it’s just me. Edit: lol great minds think alike

  29. Skaria John on May 10, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I wouldn’t replace Fred for anyone (only concern is managers asking him to play deep)…also the fact we can invest money on a better (cb,lb,rb) Given his improvement in offensive game….

    His defensive game was never in doubt,his Workrate was not even in question.

  30. Dyl is goated on May 10, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Proves how overhated Fred has become he’s acc putting up decent stats especially compared to his teammates

  31. Aman Lama on May 10, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Do 10 players man utd needs to sell. (Might be more than 10)

  32. Øystein Finnbakk on May 10, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Not sure if Statman Dave og Timo Werner

  33. tin maravic on May 10, 2022 at 8:23 pm


  34. Tenzo Orbeta on May 10, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    can you players that should be sold or sent to the reserves? im sure that list as long my Christmas list

  35. Adam Shaik on May 10, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Please I am sick United to sign 5 player in January ………sign them this is sickening every time United to sign I am hearing this for the last 4 month ……. get them close the deal ….do not talk United is just talking the other clubs are busy the new signing are already playing in their new club…… there is now way united will get the 5 new player to solve the problem where the exiting player has caused

  36. barry o'sullivan on May 10, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Fred and McTominey are not good enough to play for Manchester United. Any of these midfielders, Rice, Phillips, Bellingham, the lad from Leipsig would be a dramatic improvement. The reason United lack cohesion is because Fred and McTominey are incapable of linking up the play between defence and attack. They offer no authority or creativity.

  37. Nat Mol on May 10, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    No one in their right mind would sign for rhe scummers

  38. Cristen Ronaldo on May 10, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I think we should sign a CDM in January and sign a Box to box in the summer, for CDM i very highly rate edson Alvarez i think he is perfect, for box to box i also rate Frank Kessie alot but Jude Bellingham would be the dream

  39. BoGaz88 on May 10, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Man united should be focus on getting luis diaz from Porto..i am a fc porto guy and i rlly would like to see him in man united😍

  40. Gonzalo Hernandez on May 10, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Edson Alvarez can play center back too. I think he’d be an improvement over maguire

  41. HUSSAINI USMAN DATTI on May 10, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I too,have a conference that this transfer window Man Utd should confirmed sign new player/players.Since we have a tactician Manager,much respect to you Sir,once again.

    UP Man United!

  42. elric sedric on May 10, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I think they should get alvererz and Philips or haidara

  43. Matthew Black on May 10, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Torres, Lamptey, Kamara, Haidara, Brandt, Isak.

  44. Swae T on May 10, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Any signing Man Utd make this window will show a sign of intent. Whoever it may be, we’ll analyze him and see what Rangnick’s plan will be for the team

  45. Adam Shaik on May 10, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    United is like football club got big problems every time we read united need to sign 5 more player ……sell the the passenger players do not loan get rid of them…….I would to know from rangnick why he took out Langer he was a better player than the player came in …….united very poor all round …….biggest club in the world getting results like a yoyo my honest opinion united is getting worse every game

  46. calvarez alvarez on May 10, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Edson Alvarez will definitely make all the defenders look better and with Maguire/Lingard duo, Man United needs him

  47. Skaria John on May 10, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Fred impressing in numbers offensive ansd defensive game…. With goals,assists, interceptions,blocks,tackles,pressures….

  48. karim bouazaoui on May 10, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Declan Rice is the best option

  50. dalton mainz on May 10, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    I think one important & clinical player you have to be on his radar is Serge Milinkovic Savic … he has great passes great vision & can press as a defensive mid …must buy for me
