Manchester United are already short of quality players in midfield position and now they are going to decrease the depth as well.
The Red Devils new boss Louis van Gaal is not an admirer of Belgian star Marouane Fellaini who was bought last summer for a huge sum by David Moyes.
Former Evertonian star was arguably one of the best midfielders around in the premier league for the Toffees. However his horrific last season with United changed all that.
Now, the versatile midfield star is headed out of Manchester United for a season long Serie A loan with Napoli but not many will expect him to return to Old Trafford.
According to reports, the Belgian international is all set to join Rafael Benitez’s Napoli side after Manchester United finally agreed deal for Fellaini departure.
So what is the current scenario of United’s midfield. Carrick is already out injured for few more weeks, Fellaini is leaving and Van Gaal only have the likes of Fletcher, Cleverly and new signings Herrera.
Surely, the depth is not there and the quality is nowhere near the likes of top PL clubs.
With not much time left in the summer transfer window, Manchester United supporters are already fearing the worst.
The fans who were hoping that United will challenge for the title this season, after defeat vs Swansea, are now praying that United can somehow finish in the top 4. With the current crop of players, even that might not happen.
