Man United were not able to adequately bolster their front-line in the summer transfer window. Their priority was to sign a top right-winger. Jadon Sancho was on the radar but Man United failed to hire his services. The Norwegian manager even failed to lure an alternative and he should bolster the area in the winter transfer window.
Red Devils have to secure the signing of Adama Traore from Wolves this month. The 24-year-old winger was in world-class form for the Molineux outfit last campaign and that heavily increased his market price. Now, due to a drop in form, Wolves want to offload Adama and he could be lured for a fee of only £36m this month.
Traore is 24 and has his peak years ahead of him and we know what he is capable of. Praised by the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Guardiola, Spain international troubled the big guns last campaign. The Spanish winger scored a brace at the Etihad to earn a 2-0 victory for Wolves over the then champions Man City.
Moreover, Adama scored a goal and provided an assist to beat the Cityzens at home as well. Traore also provided an assist vs Liverpool and troubled a world-class left-back like Robertson. Overall, while mainly playing as a right-winger, he directly contributed to 18 goals in all tournaments last campaign under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Adama is arguably the fastest player in the world and definitely one of the strongest as well. Last month, a jogging Traore absolutely flattened De Gea, who was finding it hard to breath after the collision. Adama has not been able to score a goal in the PL this campaign and he has been in and out of the starting line-up as well.
