3 Players Who Could Follow Luke Shaw at Old Trafford – Manchester United

With the likes of Ander Hererra and Luke Shaw joining Manchester United in just a space of 24 hours, it is believed that the Red Devils are finally conducting their transfer recruits in a swift way thanks to executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward. The Red Devils are desperate to get themselves back on track after a disastrous 2013-14 Premier league season with a new era under legendary Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal set to be ushered for the Old Trafford faithful.

Today we take a look at United’s transfer targets and analyze on which are the probable three players who could follow in Ander Hererra and Luke Shaw’s footsteps to Old Trafford.

1. Memphis Depay:

The 20 year old attacking left winger who can also play just off the main striker up front has had a productive World Cup despite donning the substitute role for the Netherlands side. It is believed that Louis Van Gaal wants to take the PSV Eindhoven youngster to Old Trafford along with him as the Dutch legendary manager values Depay as one of the major utility players in his 4-3-3 system. Depay has scored 2 goals and grabbed an assist in just 63 minutes of action for the Oranjees in Brazil and is already being tipped to switched loyalties in the summer.

Despite Depay being deployed on the wings, the player wins almost all his headed duels and has an average 53% winnable one on tackles. This means he can be used as a different attacking outlet on the wings which will allow his team mates to run at every second balls.

But it looks like no deal is possible before the end of World Cup. The player was reluctant to be drawn into distractions about his club future earlier stating in a press conference, “I’m now in the World Cup and after that we will see. I have a contact with PSV until 2017, so we will have to see what happens in the future.”
