Manchester United haven’t scored in 2 consecutive games, but this is not a new problem. All season the attack has looked a lot weaker than in previous campaigns.
United sit 4th in the Premier League and are in a good position in the Champions League but the style of play and the lack of chance creation, and subsequent goal scoring, has not been impressive.
The new front 4, if you count the attacking midfielder, has seen a lot of turn over. Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay have come in to occupy the striker and left wing role. Juan Mata has been shifted to the right wing and Rooney, commonly a centre forward or striker, has spent most of his time in midfield.
The Red Devils attack hasn’t found any sort of rhythm yet but as it hosts so many new faces in place of established team members, it will take time for them to gel.
It is rumoured that Manchester United are looking to bring in a quick fix in the January transfer window, by the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimović.
Zlatan’s contract expires at the end of the season it is heavily rumoured that he will go to the MLS to join David Beckham’s new franchise, when it commences in 2017/18. This gives the 34 year old a year without football, as it stands.
It is though that Manchester United would try to buy him in the winter window and sign him on for an 18 month contract.
This season, Ibrahimović has over come a knee injury and then scored 7 goals and 5 assists in 11 games for Paris Saint-Germain.
