Urgent needs
According to Romano’s report, Ralf Rangnick is prioritizing the transfer of a defensive midfielder. Because he thinks Manchester United is currently in dire need of a defensive midfielder.

In the MU squad, there is only Nemanja Matic who plays as a pure defensive midfielder. So far, there are Fred and Scott McTominay who are often played as defensive midfielders.

Rangnick wants a pure defensive midfielder who can be a successor to Matic. So he asked MU management to bring in a new defensive midfielder.

Two Targets
According to Romano, Manchester United currently have two targets for a defensive midfielder position. They are Amadou Haidara and Boubacar Kamara.

Romano confirmed that Rangnick was in love with these two players. He considered these two players could improve the performance of the MU midfield.

Start Practicing
Manchester United itself has just returned to training. After their squad was off for about a week due to the large number of COVID-19 cases.

MU is now preparing for the boxing day match. The Red Devils are scheduled to meet Newcastle at St James Park.
