La Liga star Michu could Manchester United’s secret weapon next season

Sir Alex Ferguson’s inability to secure a prominent midfielder in his squad is probably the reason why Manchester United lost the 2011-12 season to archrivals Manchester City. The Eastlands not only won their first Premier League title in 44 years but they also established themselves as the latest football powerhouse in Europe.

Now that the season has ended, fans and media have started to question Sir Alex Ferguson’s abilities as the manager of Manchester United. Well, let’s not get too hasty and kick off the legendary Scotsman from the hot seat at Old Trafford. However, one thing is for sure – Sir Alex Ferguson will have to make some serious adjustments to his squad this summer… starting with the midfield.

Manchester United is in dire need of a new centre midfielder. Manchester City’s Yaya Toure had an exceptional season with the Eastlands. It was his impressive form that made the difference for Manchester City last season. Sir Alex Ferguson clearly needs a player in his mould, but that will not be easy to obtain.
Yaya Toure’s ability to play in the centre of the park, create offensive sparks and score goals is highly impressive. Yaya Toure also tracks back when his team requires him to defend. Put all of these skills together and you have the perfect midfielder for this era.

The gigantic Ivorian knows how to handle himself too. In spite of his humongous frame, Yaya Toure knows how to head and run at full pace. Overall, Yaya Toure is the proper definition of trouble for his opponents.

Manchester United scouts might have come up with a solution to Sir Alex Ferguson’s problems. According to club insiders there is one player who could challenge Yaya Toure next season.

Rayo Vallecano’s midfielder Michu has acquired a lot of interest in Europe this season. Sir Alex Ferguson has already set his eyes upon Michu, who has scored the highest number of goals for midfielder in Spain last season. Michu scored 17 goals in 39 games for Rayo Vallecano.

Interestingly, Manchester United has the opportunity to acquire Michu for a cut-price. Michu can be obtained for as low £3 million, which is nothing in comparison to the outrageous amount of money Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to spend on Eden Hazard.

Manchester United will face competition from Liverpool for Michu. Although, Liverpool is without a manger right now they too are planning to rebuild the club this summer. Michu would be a good signing for the Reds too.
