Manchester United haven’t had the worst of finishes to the year 2019 but their first Premier League encounter of the new year ended in a 2-0 defeat to arch-rivals Arsenal at the Emirates. Moreover, injuries to first-choice midfielders Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba has left them thin in the middle of the park and as a result, they are looking at a possible signing or two in the January transfer window.
Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell has had a stellar season so far which has seen him score six goals for his club in the Premier League this season. United, who are desperate for a midfield signing in January, have added the 21-year-old to their list of targets if reports from Daily Mail are to be believed.
However, signing him wouldn’t be as straightforward for the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-managed side as both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in him as well and might make a move in the upcoming transfer window. The report claims that Cantwell could cost around £30 million.
United have been linked with the likes of James Maddison, Sean Longstaff and Christian Eriksen as well and it remains to be seen if they do make a move in the winter window.
