United were termed as an "inactive" team in the summer transfer window, mostly
because they could only capture Marouane Fellaini from Everton and two youth players, namely Guillermo Varela and Saidy Janko.

They reportedly bid for the likes of Cesc Fabregas,Gareth Bale,Leighton Baines, and Sami Khedira  but were unsuccessful in their pursuit of all of them.

But the January transfer window will surely help Man utd boss David Moyes to get hold of some quality players.

January is still two months away but still there are lots of rumours floating around, and we don't know which one's are accurate and which one's are trash. So, here are some players United should try and buy in this winter transfer window- 

Fabio Coentrao

The Real Madrid left back is losing his distinction due to the presence of Marcelo in their side.

United's deadline day bid for the Portuguese was at first accepted but later rejected due to a chain of unfortunate transfer events.

Reports suggest Manchester United along with Spurs are set for a transfer tussle over the star-left back.

I guess,United must opt for a permanent move in order to put Coentrao out of his misery at Madrid. Transfermrkt.co.uk states that the 25 year old is worth £16m and Madrid may decide to offload him at a cheaper price...


Koke, a 21-year-old currently playing at Atletico Madrid, has been linked with a winter move to Old Trafford by some media outlets.

He's a pretty versatile kind of midfielder and can play a variety of position in the midfield.He's consistent, hard working, creative and he comes very, very highly rated. He's even dubbed as the next Xavi.

This season, he has played on both wings, where manager Diego Simeonehas given him license to roam and cut inside. Reports suggest that United may bid for the 21 year old and he's well within the €30 million mark.

Sami Khedira and Angel di Maria

Phil Neville was busy scouting the 26-year-old Khedira recently and this signals that United have renewed their interest in the playmaker.

Rumours suggest that United are plotting a £53m double swoop for Khedira and Angel di Maria. Others claim that David Moyes has already identified the pair as the players he wants to strengthen his squad at Old Trafford as he plots a second-half assault on the Premier League title.

Moyes' topmost priority looks to be Khedira who is a kind of player United need right now. The German provides stability to the Madrid side and acts as a link between Madrid forwards and the defence.

IIkay Gundogan

Former United coach Rene Meulensteen has urged United to buy the German playmaker from Borussia Dortmund - although,they would have to fight off competition from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old German knows how tough it may be to get a starting lineup spot at Madrid which may turn him on to United.

Usually a playmaking central midfielder, Gündoğan is best known for his passing game and technical qualities.

Marco Reus

Reus is another German who United are currently said to be chasing. 

Dortmund confirmed Reus' release clause which is believed to be around £29.4 million and reports suggest that the Red Devils are ready to use Shinji as bait in order to catch hold of the highly coveted German international.

He and Gundogan have been scouted by the Premier League champions as Moyes plots to add to his squad during the January transfer window.

He can be a pretty useful addition to the side, considering the fact that he can play anywhere in the midfield and his speed and agility can threaten even the best defences in the world.
