Manchester United will be  expected to pay Liverpool huge money for Takumi Minamino as they where slow to sign the Japanese international ahead of time.

Now, Manchester United are expected to sign two players in the January transfer window despite Ed Woodward failure to sign Liverpool new player Takumi Minamino.

As reported by Thewistle, Takunmi Minamino was on Ed Woodward’s radar before Liverpool swoop in to sign him.

Liverpool paid a whopping some of £7.25 million ($9.6m) release clause for the Japanese to bring him to Anfield.

Ed Woodward who had plans to sign Minamino, was unaware of his release clause.

Manchester United have learnt their lessons the hard way and are keen to move on from their failure by targeting two new signings in January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a creative midfielder, James Maddison is seen as a good option, but Christian Eriksen seems to be a more realistic option for Manchester United, with the creative midfielder having just six months on his contract.

Recall that Manchester United made a late move in the summer to sign Eriksen but failed. Now they have been boosted by Daniel Levy’s comment – In his interview, the Tottenham president revealed to the Evening Standard news that he has no problem letting go of Eriksen to a rival Premier League team.

From the interview, It is understood that Daniel Levy will not allow Eriksen to leave for free as such he is keen to secure a fee for the former Ajax star who has just six months in his contract.
