Two Technical Stars Who Can Replace Scott McTominay & Fred At Manchester United

Their games are based on energy, tenacity, and toughness rather than technical skill on the ball, and although both Scott McTominay and Fred have moments of brilliance, such moments are not the foundation of their games. United are desperate to add a deep-lying player who is able to take control of games. A player who can carry the ball out of tight circumstances, make the ideal pass at the opportune moment, and reestablish a feeling of control that had been lost on the side for quite some time.

Given that Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic are both leaving, further limiting their alternatives, the club has now reportedly admitted that this is the fact and is planning to bring in a midfielder this summer. This is fortunate given that Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic are both leaving because it limits their options even further. United is in serious need of a facelift in the middle of the field.

1. Frenkie De Jong

Ten Hag could be well on his way to resolving one of the team's most pressing issues if the club is successful in completing the transfer of De Jong, who is precisely the kind of player United should be looking for. However, the likelihood of the club being successful in completing the transfer is extremely low.

Even though Manchester United would almost likely need to bring in another midfielder if they had the financial means to do so, signing De Jong would be a significant step in the right direction toward helping them revamp their midfield.

2. James Garner

James Garner will also be returning to Old Trafford this summer after a loan stint that was far more fruitful. The academy graduate has been an integral part of Nottingham Forest's amazing season, which has seen the team move from being contenders for relegation to coming within a hair's breadth of automatic promotion under the direction of Steve Cooper. Garner has won a berth on the United roster, despite the fact that the play-offs are yet to come.

Even though there are worries that he has only done it in the Championship, the 21-year-old has played well in the FA Cup against Arsenal, Leicester, and Liverpool. This is despite the fact that there are worries that he has only done it in the Championship. Garner is a wonderful compliment to De Jong since he has a precise pass, confidence when holding onto the ball, and an eye for a terrific goal.
