Manchester United’s convincing 3-0 win over Aston Villa has led to some pundits suggesting that they are finally getting to grips with life under David Moyes and to add to that, last night’s victory over Stoke City in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals will be seen as a major boost for the Red Devils going into the festive season.
However, they are still 10 points off the top of the table but with all their rivals tripping over each other, there is still a chance they can defend their Premier League title.
To do this though, Moyes must do what he failed to achieve in the summer and sign a creative midfielder and here are three possible candidates who could find themselves cast as Paul Scholes’ long-term successor and would be well worth keeping an eye on in the football transfer betting specials.
The name that’s recently been mentioned by a number of sources has been Atletico Madrid starlet Koke, who is seen by many in Spain as the heir apparent to Xavi in the national team.
The 21-year-old recently made his debut for La Roja and is very much one of the key reasons for Atletico’s magnificent start to the La Liga campaign.
However, With Diego Simeone’s men going so well, it looks unlikely that his club will be willing to part with one of their best players in the middle of the season, but if the Old Trafford outfit are prepared to break the bank, he could certainly be the answer to their problems.
