With the new Premier League season not even a month away, all the teams are busy getting in the transfers they need to be ready for the grueling season ahead. While both Manchester United and Arsenal have gotten some key signings already (Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy) the lack of depth in both team’s defence is really noticeable. With both teams looking at potential defensive signings to best cover their positions in the starting eleven (Hummels and Vermaelen for Manchester United), the main challenge lies in getting the cheap signings done who can be the potential cover for the long season ahead. Here at Soccersouls we take a look at the top 5 low budget defenders Manchester United and Arsenal can look to get.
1. Ron Vlaar:
The Aston Villa captain had a fantastic World Cup and will be more than comfortable with Louis Van Gaal’s tactics given how he was managed by the Manchester United manager at Brazil. Given how the temptation of playing for a big club can force Aston Villa to sell him for cheap this is an option Manchester United can always go for. Also Arsenal are looking for an experienced defender to play as back up to Koscielny and Mertesacker and they can do a lot worse than Ron Vlaar.
