January Signings: 3 Experienced Right Backs Who Will Add Depth To Manchester United’s Defence

The last transfer season was a mixed one for Manchester United. While they were great in bringing a host of attacking players, they could not arrange their defense so well. Actually they could not hold of a proper centre back and now they are paying the price for it. Also their right back situation is vulnerable and relying only on Rafael is never a good option for a club as huge as Manchester United. They should have brought in some players in the summer itself, but they failed to do so and in the January window they should be looking to do this without failure. While Louis van Gaal has a particular playing style and it is not always easy to get the kind of players with his formation in mind, United do have some options and they should act on them. We provide the names of some of the right backs Manchester United can try and capture in the January transfer window.

1. Juanfran

The Atletico Madrid right back has been one of the better performers of the club last season and helped his side win the La Liga. Atletico Madrid always seem, to sell off their best players and Chelsea got the best deals last time when they took away Diego Costa and Filipe Luis from them. United can try and lure Juanfran to the Old Trafford this term and that would solve all their problems in the right side of the defence. Juanfran is 29 years old and still has a couple of years of top level football in him and he would be the immediate solution for van Gaal. He has the defensive rigidity and the attacking instincts that the Dutch manager looks in his players and in all respect Juanfran would be a brilliant choice for United.
