Who Man Utd scouts must watch during international break to boost January transfer plans | Football | Sport

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will feel frustrated that Ed Woodward was not able to bring in more than three new faces this summer.

The Manchester United squad is already looking slightly thin on the ground just a month into the new season.

Paul Scholes believes it will take United five or six transfer windows to catch up with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

Here are a few stars they should be watching closely while they’re away with their countries, in preparation for the January transfer window.

Timo Werner

This boy has pace to burn and has already shown this season with RB Leipzig his star quality.

Having lost Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan, Manchester United need to start thinking about bringing in a new forward.

There aren’t many top forward prospects around at the moment, meaning Werner’s stock is high.

He’s been dubbed the future of the German attack, so it’s worth seeing how he fares in upcoming EURO 2020 qualifiers with the Netherlands and Northern Ireland.

Jadon Sancho and James Maddison

It goes without saying that these two are already on the club’s radar.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants young British players to be at the core of his rebuild, and these are two of the most promising youngsters in Europe as it stands.

Maddison is yet to make his senior Three Lions debut, but he and Sancho have started the season like a house on fire for Leicester and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

Woodward ought to keep his eye on them both, before their value continues to skyrocket.

John McGinn

Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly recommended to his former club that they snap up the Aston Villa midfielder.

On Monday night he will put his credentials to the test against the likes of Kevin De Bruyne at Hampden Park when Scotland face Belgium.

He has the nous and intelligence to be a real star at Old Trafford, so it’s worth United keeping track on his performances for both club and country.

McGinn is also one of the leading figures in the Scotland dressing room, a quality that wouldn’t go amiss right now at United.
