Manchester United: Five potential marquee signings

Published 1 Comments

After Manchester United boss David Moyes revealed the club were extremely close to landing a major signing in this past transfer window, many have now tipped the Red Devils to land a marquee signing in January or more realistically next summer. 

But which stars could be available to Moyes as the United boss looks to get the Red Devils back firing?

Here's five players he may try to land in the next couple of windows: 

5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It certainly wouldn't be easy for David Moyes to land PSG's hit man Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but is a move for the Swede totally out of the question?

At 32-years-old, surely Ibrahimovic would fancy a crack in the Premier League and Manchester United would, without a doubt, prove an attractive destination for the powerful forward. 

If Ibrahimovic was to come in at Old Trafford, his presence alone would give the Theatre of Dreams a major lift. Comparisons with Eric Cantona would certainly be made and with that No.7 shirt free who knows what could be in store for the superstar.

4. Wesley Sneijder

Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder has constantly been linked with a move to Old Trafford over a number of years, however the Dutch star has never sealed a switch to United. 

But, with United in need of another superstar, could Sneijder finally arrive at the Premier League giants?

With fellow Dutchman Robin van Persie at the club, Sneijder may well be interested in one more big career move and he still has a lot to offer on the football pitch. 

3. Marco Reus

German international Marco Reus would certainly prove a major hit at Manchester United. 

The attacking midfielder continues to shine on Europe's elite stage at Borussia Dortmund and his naturally ability would work wonders in the Premier League. 

At 24-years-old, Reus would be an ideal signing for Moyes as he looks to put his own team together. 

2. Angel di Maria

Angel di Maria is yet another quality star that has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

With United struggling to find consistency on the wings, the Argentine star could add extra quality down the flanks for Moyes. 

With Bale, Ronaldo and Co. all starring at Madrid, Di Maria may well follow former teammate Mesut Ozil to the Premier League. 

1. Ilkay Gundogan

Another Borussia Dortmund star to have been linked with a move to the Premier League champions is Ilkay Gundogan. 

Of course it may take a mega bid for to secure his services, however with Moyes insisting United have the funds available, the German star could be just the man for Manchester United. 

Gundogan's fine range of passing and quality on the ball would certainly help the Red Devils reach full flow.
