Man United to Take Advantage & Complete €27m Signing

Miranda Atletico MadridManchester United must secure the signing of a top quality central defender in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have literally wasted two transfer windows but could not sign a single star who could be the leader of defense and replace legendary captain Nemanja Vidic.

Rojo has been decent in central defense but still United lack someone World Class to lead the line.

According to latest reports, Manchester United have been given the green light by Atletico Madrid to sign Brazilian defender Miranda.

The 30 year old has only featured in 13 league games this season mainly because of injury concerns but lately in the last 5 league games, the Samba star has found himself warming the bench in 3.

With only 18 months remaining on his contract, the Spanish champions want to sell him and as per the provided Express link, Manchester United are to take advantage and complete €27m Miranda signing as manager Louis van Gaal is keen to secure his services.

Uruguayan international Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez are forming a strong partnership in Atletico’s central defense and the right option for Miranda is to leave.

Whether or not Miranda can be the leader of Manchester United’s defense, only time will tell but United should not hurry in the summer as they will have more options and time to sign the perfect defender.

Contrary to that, if they are to waste time again then it is better that they seal deal for Miranda as soon as possible.

    He’s now old so there’s no need wasting such kind of money on him. Man United problem is Van Gaal and not the defence. Man U is the 3rd best defensive side in the league so why do they think that defence is the problem. Falcao and RVP with Van Gaal is the problem. Why playing Rooney in the midfield wen u have Herrera a complete midfielder.

    I don’t see Man U being so unwise to spent anything beyond £10m for a 30yr old defender, that’s close to retiring age for most defenders in the premier league. We should pride in our own McNairs, the Blecketts and if we think of getting ‘quick fix’ to our defensive problems then only Danny Alves is the answer because he comes free. If we are to spent big on defenders, it’s gotta be the likes of Marquinhos, Laportte, Ramos, Humelles or Varane. These aren’t just good defenders but they have a couples of years to pay back ahead of them.

      Van Gaal is the only problem. Sack him and appoint anyone else. We will save a lot of money and we will be far better team
