Man United’s Midfield Transfer Targets, Part 1, The Box-to-Box Midfielders, Summer 2012
In the first part of our new midfield transfer targets series, we’re going to look at the players who have the ability to become United legends as the tenacious, box-to-box midfielder which we are sorely missing.
In the past, United have had many players capable of fulfilling this role but since Fletcher’s loss of form, due to illness, we have been lacking that player who can drive our team to victory because of their attacking and defensive prowess.
Assessed below are five players who all possess power, creativity and ruthlessness and are the essence of box-to-box midfielders:
- Bastian Schweinsteiger
- Arturo Vidal
- Claudio Marchisio
- Éver Banega
- Jack Rodwell
