Manchester United in Fabio Coentrao raid

Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao could move to United during the January window for 12 million euros, according to the Mirror.

With Evra ageing and his form declining, a new left-back is a must for David Moyes.

With Luke Shaw seemingly ruled out, Coentrao seems like the perfect solution to United's problems.

25-years-old and in the peak years of his career, he probably has at least six good seasons left in him.

A great attacking left-back who can also play as a winger, he also is more solid in defence than many of United's other left-back options.

In addition to tasting success in his club career, Coentrao has also established himself as a leading figure in the Portugal squad, having appeared for the team 43 times.

The Portuguese could also prove fantastic value for money.

United would have to pay potentially double Coentrao's fee for Shaw or Leighton Baines - both of whom are lacking in Champions League experience.

Should the deal go through, it would silence some of the doubters who claim Moyes is unable to attract top players, while it could give the United squad a much needed boost in the push for Champions League football.
