Manchester United failed in their bid to sign Athletic Bilbao’s Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera during the summer.
The Reds were believed to have matched the £30.5m release clause in the 24-year-old’s contract, but just before the deal looked to be going through it turned out that the supposed United representatives who were involved in the deal in fact were not from the club at all.
David Moyes did add Marouane Fellaini to the squad, however fans feel as though they still need at least another big name midfielder following the retirement of club legend Paul Scholes.
There is one man that could be the answer to Moyes’ midfield dilemma; and he is Jack Wilshere.
The 21-year-old is widely regarded as England’s ‘next big thing’.
Wilshere is already being compared to Paul Gascgoine who is no doubt one of the greatest players this country has ever produced.
Arsene Wenger is a huge admirer of the midfielder and will no doubt do everything he can to keep him at Arsenal in the future, however the arrival of German star Mesut Ozil will put a lot of pressure upon the young man.
The fan’s reaction to getting Ozil was staggering and has suggested that he has instantly become Arsenal’s main man without even kicking a ball.
If Ozil is to be as good as he can be, Wilshere could quite easily find himself replaced in the starting line-up.
Although the two players can play anywhere in the midfield going forward, they will both expect to play where they are most effective; in the most attacking role of a three-man midfield.
If Wilshere is to fall down the pecking order at Arsenal due to Ozil’s arrival, Manchester United should move to try and bring him to Old Trafford.
United fans do not want to see David Moyes turn the club into a foreign one and signing an English Jack Wilshere over a Spanish Ander Herrera would no doubt be a preferred decision.
