Five players Manchester United could sign
1. Fabio Coentrao
With Everton unwilling to sell Leighton Baines and Luke Shaw insisting he will see out the season with Southampton, Moyes may look to Real Madrid’s Coentrao to provide competition for Patrice Evra.
While United did buy Alexander Buttner in 2012, the Dutchman has looked woefully out of depth and has failed to impress in his limited first-team opportunities so far.
Possibility of signing: moderate to high
The Portuguese has been firmly behind Marcelo in the Real Madrid pecking order this season, starting only two La Liga games. Furthermore, the 25-year-old is still eligible to participate in the Champions League having not played in that competition this season.
With Coentrao unsettled at Madrid, Moyes may therefore renew his interest after a last-minute loan bid for the wing-back fell through only due to administrative issues in the last transfer window.
