With little over six weeks until Manchester United board the transfer merry-go-round once again the pressure is on to acquire targets capable of adding star quality at Old Trafford, as David Moyes continues to build a team he hopes can retain their Premier League crown.

United were widely criticised for failing to complete deals for a number of midfielder's across the continent last summer, with botched bids for Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera and Daniele De Rossi eventually leading to a £27.5m deadline-day swoop for Marouane Fellaini.

Following a fairly underwhelming start to their first Premier League campaign under Moyes the spotlight is on United's transfer policy now more than ever, with leading lights in the Bundesliga such as Ilkay Gundogan and Julian Draxler persistently linked with a Premier League switch in January.

Despite the Bundesliga being very much flavour of the month thanks to strong Champions League performances United would be well served by turning their attention to Serie A, with a plethora of options available at more competitive prices as the search for difference-makers in a tight title race hots up.

As United fans clamour for fresh midfield impetus let's look at five Calcio creators who would provide viable alternatives to another foiled flirt with Fabregas when the transfer window reopens.
