Paul McGrath believes Manchester United MUST sign an experienced centre-back in the January transfer window.The Red Devils were victorious at Arsenal on Saturday, although Arsene Wenger’s side were unlucky not to be out of sight at half-time.United’s lack of defensive options has again come under the spotlight with Louis van Gaal forced to rely on 20-year-old Tyler Blackett and 19-year-old Paddy McNair.And McGrath claims his former side are in desperate need of a new leader at the back.“Van Gaal will want money to spend [in the January transfer window],”he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “They badly need an older, more experienced defender.“It’s all about what you’re allowed to spend and what players will come to the club.“Man United could have let in a few more goals against Arsenal, they were fortunate.”
AdvertisementManchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho is not very much confident about the future of the star Spanish Goalkeeper David De Gea at Manchester United. David De Gea’s contract with the Red Devils is going to expire after the end of the season; though he has to option to extend the contract till 2020. But Jose Mourinho is not very much confident about the contract extension of David De Gea.When, Jose Mourinho was asked about the future of the Spanish Goalkeeper at Manchester United, he told to Sky Sports, “I am not confident,” David De Gea is an important player for the Red Devils and he has saved the day for Manchester United for enumerate times. If, the star Spanish Goalkeeper decides to leave Old Trafford, there will be huge void for them and it will be really hard for the Red Devils to find a proper replacement of David De Gea.

My comment is only that everyone knows how good he is, how important he is for Manchester United and, if the club want to be better than it is and not worse, obviously it would be very important to keep David.” David De Gea is the prime target of Juventus in the next summer transfer window. Juventus are currently not having a World class Goalkeeper in their side. The addition of David De Gea will surely help them to become a side who can challenge for the Champions League title in the next season. If the club management of Juventus can rope in David De Gea in the next summer, it will be another low cost signing of them after Emre Can(from Liverpool) and Dani Alves (from Barcelona).
