Man United sanction second jenuary transfer under Ralph Rangnick’s leadership



Reinforcements needed at Old Trafford

If their 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Old Trafford last Monday evening showed anything, it was that reinforcements are desperately needed at Manchester United, now under the tutelage of Ralf Rangnick.

The players looked disinterested, with the best performer (Phil Jones) on the day having not played a senior minute in almost 2 years.

Manchester United had two shots on target against Wolves šŸ˜¬

Disjointed in midfield and attack, but boasting a squad of star names, something isnā€™t adding up in Manchester, as prolific goalscorers Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo are starved of service by former superstar talent Jadon Sancho and prodigious starlet Mason Greenwood.

It seems as though January has been earmarked as a potential time for midfield reinforcements, with Nemanja Matic still the first option from a bench on which Donny van de Beek remains, looking on.

But first, United have agreed another departure from Carrington.

Second loanee departs

Bournemouth have confirmed the capture of talented full-back Ethan Laird on a six-month loan.

Two days, two signings āœ…

A warm welcome to the latest #afcb addition, @EthanLaird āœļø

On loan at Swansea for the first half of the campaign, Laird will now help Bournemouth fight for promotion from the Championship back to the top-flight under the tutelage of Scott Parker.

In an official statement, Bournemouth CEO Neill Blake revealed:

ā€œEthan is an exciting prospect and we are very pleased to have brought him on board. His style of play fits perfectly with ours and Iā€™m confident he can help us build on what has been an excellent first half of the season.

ā€œHe has impressed during his two previous loan spells and is very well thought of at Manchester United, so we couldnā€™t be happier to have secured his services.ā€


Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward



Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasnā€™t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according toĀ Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felixā€™s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.
