6 signings that would win Manchester United the EPL title



Sign any two of these six players, and the title could be headed to Old Trafford for the first time since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Gary Neville once said, "I say it every year, whoever recruits best, wins the league”. 

Last year Chelsea were bolstered by the recruitment of N’Golo Kante and Antonio Conte while this year their signings of Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoué Bakayoko have bolstered their ranks – in the absence of Diego Costa, they do, though, need a world-class striker if they are to have any chance of retaining the title.

Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, said Manchester United’s summer purchase status was at half-done. They’ve already signed the promising Victor Lindelof from Benfica and the belligerent Romelu Lukaku from Everton (from right under Chelsea’s noses to boot) but two more signings and the deal could be sealed – so we look at six players who would fit the bill perfectly at United.

Meet them in the GALLERY below:

06. Eric Dier

Current Club: Tottenham Hotspur

Potential impact of transfer: 6/10

Likelihood of transfer: 5/10

Possessing a unique style of his own – something he himself calls a cross between Portuguese and English sides – it’s understandable that Jose Mourinho looks favourably at the midfielder as he’s the kind of player – versatile, good on the ball – that the Portuguese manager loves having in his squad. 

Dier’s presence would free up Ander Herrera, and more importantly, Paul Pogba – the world’s most expensive player could then begin to show the rest of the world just what all the fuss is about.
