Why Manchester United Will Become An Unstoppable Force With Thomas Lemar In Their Side

Manchester United have been a busy club this transfer window as Jose Mourinho has spent heavily on his summer recruits. But he is still not done with his transfer business and wants to add another top quality star to his first team. His side have made a sensational start to the league campaign and to make it better, the manager is looking at AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar as a possible addition before the deadline day.

A transfer target for Liverpool and Arsenal as well, the £55million rated Lemar was in sensational form for French outfit Monaco last season, helping them to a domestic league title. Ever since then, he has been linked with an exit. But none of the club interested in his signature have able to meet the valuation of the Ligue1 side this summer.

Manchester United are the latest side to have been linked with a move for the 21-year old. So, should Mourinho meet his valuation? What will he add to the squad at Old Trafford?

At just 21, Lemar has already established himself as one of the best wingers in European football. His pace and movement off the ball is what makes him a dangerous player in the final third. He scored 9 goals and picked up 11 assists last season and is the first choice winger at the Stade Louis II at the moment, having already made 5 appearances for the French national side.

Capable of playing on either wing, Lemar loves to take on his man on the wing and put in accurate crosses from the flank, most of which find its man. He is adept at cutting in or holding on to the ball but is at his best in one on one situations, where he, more often than not, gets the better of his opponent.

He can finish and create chances and is a player who will push for a first team place quickly at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are the current options for Mourinho on the left wing. Though the French star might not walk into the first team ahead of the two names, he is a more natural winger and will play to the strengths of Romelu Lukaku, who will have more joy in front of goal.

His crossing and passing will sit in well with the system at Old Trafford while the French connection with Pogba and Martial will help him settle at the club quite easily, making him the perfect fit for United. Surely, if Mourinho decides to get him to Old Trafford, Lemar could turn into a match winner in England in no time.

Lemar would turn the already unstoppable Manchester United into an invincible unit.
