Manchester United tracking seven midfielders

Published Add your comment

David Moyes has compiled a seven-man transfer shortlist as he looks to strengthen his Manchester United squad this month.

According to the Daily Star, central midfield is his number one priority and the Old Trafford chief has seven top names under consideration.

Following Anderson's departure to Italy, United have a gap to fill in the middle of midfield - an area of weakness even before the Brazilian left for Fiorentina.

The report claims Moyes has more than £100m to spend this month, but he's choosing his targets carefully.

Juventus star Arturo Vidal - who scored again for Juventus last night against Sampdoria - is one of the biggest names on the wish-list while Juan Mata remains a target as long as he continues to languish on the bench at Stamford Bridge.

Southampton's Adam Lallana and Everton youngster Ross Barkley are also United targets, while a pair of Serie A creators - Lazio's Brazilian international Hernanes and Roma's Miralem Pjanic - are being watched by Old Trafford officials.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke has been a long-term target, but the Spaniard recently signed a new contract at the Vicente Calderon and is now no longer a priority for United.

Paris St Germain's Lucas Moura - a United target from his days at Sao Paolo - is the final name on the shortlist.
