So, Sir Alex Ferguson has left Manchester United and in comes David Moyes as his successor. A new manager means fresh faces and new ideas. Moyes will be reluctant to change the whole landscape at Old Trafford, however a couple of quality additions may be in the offing.
Brendan Rodgers raided his old club for Joe Allen last summer and Moyes looks set to do similar. Arguably the two best players at Everton (Moyes’ old club) are left-back Leighton Baines and goalscoring midfielder Marouane Fellaini. According to today’s tabloids in the UK, the new Red Devils boss will look to take them with him after the season finishes.
The knock-on effect of these arrivals could be more interesting. Wayne Rooney is reportedly unhappy and the addition of Fellaini would push him further down the pecking order - and potentially out of the club. Baines’ arrival would no doubt leave Patrice Evra wondering whether he will get game time next season.
