It has been an uninspiring season so far for United, with the club struggling to find form and the pressure mounting on the current coaching staff. The English side did not take advantage of the summer transfer window to strengthen their side and it is showing. However, as the weeks roll by and we come up to the January transfer window, there is some Manchester United transfer news that will shock a lot of fans.
The United Stand are reporting that United are looking to make a move for Adama Traore of Wolves in a shock deal that would see the player move for a hefty price tag. Wolves have already lost one of their strikers, Diogo Jota to Liverpool earlier this season and could be losing Traore as well.
Although, we have to question, why would United make a move for another winger, attack minded player when they already have so many players in those positions already? The likes of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, and Daniel James all come to mind who at times operate in the same position as Traore usually does. However, Traore would be an improvement, as the player would bring speed, power, and width to the United attacking third.
With Wolves struggling for goals this season, they will be hard pressed to let Traore go, unless they can capture a hefty fee in which they can reinvestment in the market. United have been known to spend big on players and this is a deal that Woodward may close in January.
To some United fans, this type of news has come with excitement, but to others, they would much rather see the club make improvements in other areas of the pitch – like defensively, where United have been in shambles this season.
