With a lack of creativity and dynamism in Manchester United’s midfield, plenty of potential summer signings are currently being assessed by the Old Trafford board.
However, one man held his hand up for a big-money move to Manchester at the end of the season on Friday night.
Miralem Pjanic has been a star for a Roma side pushing for the Serie A title this term and again showed his breathtaking array of skills against AC Milan last night.
The gifted midfielder scored this opener in a 2-0 win – showing Manchester United fans just what they’d be missing by overlooking him this summer.
United have been linked with audacious moves for Toni Kroos and Cesc Fabregas, but the reality is that the Old Trafford club will have more difficulty than usual in attracting top-notch players to the club without Champions League football.
However, Pjanic’s future at Roma is up in the air and with an expiring contract in 2015 the Bosnian is a more realistic choice.
His ability on the ball, vision and creativity would give United something they would be dearly missing – instead of a transfer saga that fails this summer, the outgoing Premier League champions must move for Pjanic NOW.
Is Pjanic the man to fire United back into the title reckoning?
