Manchester United have suffered from a lack of midfield quality this season especially in the Premier League and they are expected to rectify the situation when the transfer window reopens later this summer.
The midfield became threadbare towards the end of last year after the injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.
French World Cup winner Pogba has hardly played a game for Manchester United this season because of a troublesome ankle injury, while Scotland international Scott McTominay was a regular fixture in the Red Devils starting XI until he sustained a knee injury during the home game against Newcastle United on Boxing Day.
McTominay has since recovered from that injury and was recently part of the squad to the winter break preseason camp in Spain, while Pogba is still recovering after ankle surgery.
Manchester United have already recruited a midfielder in the last transfer window and they are expected to sign at least one more this summer. Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is in doubt and the club could need one more midfielder if the Frenchman leaves the former champions this summer.
