The players who should come to Manchester United for the club to fight for the Premier League

The Red Devil team has been in the shadow of Sir Alex Ferguson's achievements for several years now.

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United needs players to make its attack more powerful and its defense more assertive.

It has now been more than 9 years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired from the Manchester United managerial bench and in all this time the team has had some sparks and small glories but has not been able to return to what it once was under Ferguson's baton. And perhaps that is why the club is looking to strengthen like never before and is trying to sign some interesting elements.

The player's Manchester United really need

However, in this search for players the Red Devil team has sinned of not contemplating elements that could really be revulsive for the team and that would really help them to recover some of the greatness that the team has lost. Therefore, here are a series of recommendations so that the team that plays at Old Trafford has a real chance to compete in the Premier League to win it. And the first element would be a big surprise for the entire English league. 

Robert Lewandowsky is looking to leave Bayern Munich as he has exhausted himself in the Bundesliga and has expressed his desire to play in another league, so his goalscoring ability and ability to add depth to any attack would do United well if Ten Hag could get him and Cristiano Ronaldo to play together without getting in each other's way. But with Rashford and Cavani leaving the team, the Pole would be a great fit.

And another player who could serve as a ball provider for both Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowsky would be Ousmane Dembélé, who has prodigious wing play and whose runs could give the aforementioned players the opportunity to find their place up front to finish off the balls that the French striker could serve them. And since it's not all about the forward line, it's time to review what would be the best options for United in terms of midfield.

Given that McTominay and Fred are good at defending but lousy at creating a play, the best accompaniment for these players in midfield would be Youri Tielemans, the Leicester City midfielder, who has become a reference for the team coached by Brendan Rodgers, with whom he is going through a great footballing moment. But the most important thing would be that this player could serve as a link between midfield and forward.

And to close, we must be hard on something: Manchester United was a real sieve last season and not because of David de Gea, but because their defensive line was simply lost, so United should go all out for Jurrien Timber, the 20-year-old promise of Ajax Amsterdam who has had an outstanding season in the Eredivisie. Despite his youth, the defender's abilities and desire to excel may offer the club the leadership it needs in defense.
