3 Reasons Why Manchester United Should Sign a Defensive Midfielder

Manchester United had a great start to the English Premier League season 2021/22.

However, there are three reasons why Manchester United requires the services of a defensive midfielder.

1. To provide a balance between attack and defense: the team's defense is solid, but the team needs to sign a defensive midfielder to provide a balance between attack and defense. This is the lone position in which the board has to improve before the transfer deadline. Matic, the team's only defensive midfielder, is getting older and unable to play on a regular basis. In order for the team to succeed. A natural defensive midfielder should be considered by the board.

2. To break, the traditional diamond formation: this formation is used whenever a team is playing against a top opponent. The diamond configuration is fantastic, but because it is a defensive-minded shape, the squad has trouble finding the back of the net anytime they use it. If the squad wants to break this setup, they'll need to sign a defensive midfielder. The midfield will be sturdy if this is done.

3. To bring out Paul's creativity: The Frenchman is one of the team's most inventive players. If the board wants to get the most out of the Frenchman, it needs to buy a defensive midfielder who can protect the back line.

In the French national team, Paul is a free-role midfielder, whilst Kante is a static midfielder. This gives Paul permission to move forward.

Paul Pogba will be able to progress if the board can purchase a natural defensive midfielder, which will improve the team's performance.
