Old Trafford side looking for reinforcements in the middle of midfield.
Manchester United have narrowed down their list of midfield targets to three and look set to make their move either this January or at the end of the season, according to The Manchester Evening News.
The Premier League leaders are also set to go head-to-head with rivals Chelsea to seal their preferred target’s signature.
The Old Trafford club are looking for quality midfield reinforcements with Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs nearing the end of their playing careers, and doubts lingering over the capabilities of Michael Carrick and Anderson to compete at the highest level.
With Darren Fletcher unsure of how his career will be impacted by his chronic bowel condition, Ferguson is ready to invest as he seeks to prepare his side for another crack at the Champions League.
So who has Sir Alex identified as the men capable of leading United in the middle of the park?
