Manchester United complete second January transfer under Ralf Rangnick’s leadership


Manchester United complete second January transfer under Ralf Rangnick’s leadership

Reinforcements needed at Old Trafford

If their 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Old Trafford last Monday evening showed anything, it was that reinforcements are desperately needed at the club, now under the tutelage of Ralf Rangnick.

The players looked disinterested, with the best performing player (Phil Jones) not having played a senior minute in almost 2 years.

Disjointed in midfield and attack, but boasting a squad of star names, something isn’t adding up in Manchester, as prolific goalscorers Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo are starved of service by former superstar talent Jadon Sancho and prodigious talent Mason Greenwood.

It seems as though January has been earmarked as a potential time for midfield reinforcements, with Nemanja Matic still the first option from a bench where Donny Van De Beek remains, looking on.

But first, they have agreed another departure from Carrington.

Second loanee departs

Now, Bournemouth have confirmed the capture of talented full-back Ethan Laird on a six month loan.

On loan at Swansea for the first half of the campaign, Laird will now help Bournemouth fight for promotion from the Championship back to the top flight under the tutelage of Scott Parker.

In an official statement, Bournemouth CEO Neill Blake revealed:

“Ethan is an exciting prospect and we are very pleased to have brought him on board. His style of play fits perfectly with ours and I’m confident he can help us build on what has been an excellent first half of the season.

“He has impressed during his two previous loan spells and is very well thought of at Manchester United, so we couldn’t be happier to have secured his services.”

Can the departure spur incomings at Manchester United?
