Miranda could complete Premier League move in January

Published 3 Comments

Atletico Madrid are set to offer Miranda to some of the Premier League's elite clubs, according to the Daily Star.

It has been suggested that the Brazilian ace could now join one of England's big-boys, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all seemingly interested in the player's signature. 

On his way out 

Miranda has enjoyed a wonderful couple of years at the La Liga outfit, however it now appears that boss Diego Simeone is ready to sell him on in the upcoming window. 

At 30-years-old, however, he won't come cheap, with the Spanish side reportedly wanting as much as £19.5 million for the defender's services. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the Atletico man will complete a move to the Premier League in January, but he'd most certainly prove a fine coup for the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal, who are in need of experience in their back-line.

In need of experience 

Manchester United, who lost the likes of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand this past summer, have struggled at times at the back throughout the course of the campaign so far, so would no doubt improve with Miranda in the side. 

With Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal playing a back-three at Old Trafford, Miranda could slot in nicely alongside the likes of Phil Jones and Jonny Evans. 

Arsenal, meanwhile, have endured problems in the defensive department this term, with the likes of Laurent Koscielny and Co. struggling to maintain their fitness. 

Liverpool, much like United and Arsenal, have had problems themselves this season, despite splashing the cash on Dejan Lovren this past summer, so they may well be tempted to swoop in for the Atletico man. 

It's uncertain as to whether the duo of Chelsea and Manchester City would be interested in the Brazilian, as they go in search of the Premier League title this season.
