Following the closing of the summer transfer window, it has become even clearer to everyone that Manchester United’s weakest area is the defensive midfield.

Fred and / or Scott McTominay are usually deployed in this area, along with Paul Pogba in the ‘McFred’ pivot.

However, both players (particularly the former) are simply not cut out to be a leading defensive midfielder for a superior team.

The Brazilian has been particularly poor in recent years, incitement Roy Keane to question whether United can realistically compete for the biggest titles with the Brazilian in his midfield:

“All the shortcomings of United have manifested themselves in the last few days. Look at the performance of the two midfielders. [Scott] McTominay is a good and honest player. And they have Fred. As long as those two players are in Manchester United’s midfield, they won’t win big trophies. “

Why Manchester United did not hire a midfielder

As it is obvious to almost everyone who watches United on a regular basis that a new defensive midfielder is required, it was somewhat surprising to see the Manchester side not budging for one in the summer window.

Yes, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho addressed the weak areas on United’s side, but it’s hard not to think that Man United will never be able to win something big unless they sign a proper No. 6.

So why didn’t Manchester United sign a midfielder over the summer?

Well the Manchester evening news They have moved to explain the reason for Wednesday.

First, the MEN reports that part of the reason United did not sign a new midfielder was because they did not receive a specific offer for Paul Pogba.

They add that another factor in which the Red Devils did not hire a midfielder was that the club’s hiring department was not convinced there was a “game-changing” defensive midfield option on the market.

However, Man United fans should not despair too much, as MEN also reported that United have already designated Declan Rice as their main midfield target in next year’s transfer window.
