3 Reasons Why Manchester United Should Sign This Beast Midfielder

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Newcastle hard man Cheick Tiote in the summer, after reportedly failing with an enquiry in January,  in a bid to add some steel to their midfield. Here are three reasons why it is a good idea.

1. Defensive presence

The Ivorian provides the sort of defensive presence in midfield that United have been craving for this season. He averages 5 defensive actions per game and has managed 43 interceptions, 10 blocks and 52 clearances in his 21 appearances this season. He is always snapping into tackles into midfield and that constant pressing is currently lacking in the current United setup.

Besides, Titote is built like a tank, and his physical presence will add something extra to United as he is clearly capable of playing a more physical game if the situation demands, which United are currently incapable of.
