5 Cut-price Players That Can Be Snapped Up By Manchester United, Arsenal, And Other EPL Clubs

Bargain targets for Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool.

Well, the January window is a very crucial window for clever signings that give managers another chance to make some final touches and get the team balance right. It requires getting those players who suit the tactics, which most managers apply successfully to the teams by January. There is another key factor in January that many managers consider and that is of the smart cut-price deals for some good players as the contracts of these players run out in the coming summer, meaning their clubs won’t mind selling them for much lower rates instead of losing them for no cost in the coming season, especially when they don’t want the player. Here are five players whom managers can strike a cut price deal with in January.

  1. Nigel De Jong (AC Milan)

The aggressive defensive midfielder played a strong role in Netherland’s great run in the World Cup. He has been a good performer in AC Milan as well. But his contract runs out in the summer of 2015 and there haven’t been talks of an extension as yet. There are some teams in the Premier League who are in need of a destroyer in midfield and there have been rumours of van Gaal being interested in de Jong, a player whom he rates highly.
