Manchester United need to sign a creative midfielder during the January transfer window according to experienced journalist Samuel Luckhurst who writes for the Manchester Evening News (MEN).
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has masterminded a mini-revival at the club in recent times but they still need to bolster their squad ahead of the second half of the season.
According to Samuel Luckhurst, Manchester United have to sign a creative midfielder to improve their attacking output.
The Red Devils have lacked creativity for the most parts of this Premier League and they have been linked with several playmakers in a bid to rectify the problem.

Their creativity in midfield has not been helped by the absence of Paul Pogba who’s still recovering from an ankle injury.
The injury has restricted the French World Cup winner to six appearances for his team this season.
Leicester City midfielder James Maddison is the top candidate for the creative role but the Foxes are unlikely to let him leave the club during the January transfer window.
James Maddison has already scored four goals and also provided three assists in the Premier League this season.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen is a popular alternative to James Maddison according to Samuel Luckhurst.
