Manchester United defender Luke Shaw suffered a horror injury in the Champions League game against PSV and now the Red Devils are linked with players who can replace the England international.
According to latest news, Metro cite reports in Spain claiming that Louis van Gaal has made Barcelona star Adriano his prime transfer target and Man United are preparing a move to sign the Brazilian star in the winter transfer window.
The talented 30-year-old Samba star hardly plays for Barcelona’s first team these days and this season he has only made one appearance so far for the Catalan giants. In the treble winning last season, the former Sevilla defender could only feature in 16 league games and made just 10 starts (Transfermarkt).
Adriano can effectively play as a wing back on either side and is productive in attack as well. He has scored 16 goals and provided 22 assists for the Spanish giants in over 171 games (Transfermarkt).
The versatile star has got the quality and the experience and can be a perfect addition to the Manchester United squad.
