Five players Manchester United can sign instead of Ivan Perisic

  1. Gareth Bale:

Bale has been time and again linked with a move away from Real Madrid, but it hasn’t materialized till date. Bale was a monster when he was at Tottenham Hotspur which helped him earn a move to Real Madrid. Bale would be ideal for Manchester United given his experience in the Premier League and his versatile ability to play on both the wings. His future remains uncertain with Isco and Asensio showing some stellar performances on the field, meaning a huge hurdle for Bale to start regularly and it is best United make a move for him soon.

  1. Julian Draxler:

Draxler was once strongly wanted by a number of clubs when he was at Schalke. His move to Paris Saint Germain hasn’t been that fruitful for him, and now that the French club has signed Neymar, his future is very uncertain at the club. Draxler is equally good with both his feet and can play on either wing and also centrally. The German international can be a very effective signing for the Red Devils should they manage to sign him this summer.

  1. Keita Balde:

Balde is one of the lesser known players on this list, but he is a well-known figure at Lazio. He has been impressive for the Serie A team over the past few seasons and did well last season scoring 16 goals and assisting on three others. He’s only 22 and has a lot of football ahead of himself. Although it is a different thing to perform well in Serie A than to perform in the Premier League, Balde can develop very well under Jose Mourinho and help the English club.

  1. Kylian Mbappe:

The Frenchman is the next big thing in football. The AS Monaco striker impressed plenty of people with some stunning performances last season. The 18-year-old scored 21 goals in 38 games, and it is no wonder that the top European clubs want his signature. Signing Mbappe would be an option for United but a difficult task given the interests from Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid. Also, signing him would take a massive amount given the competition.

  1. Anthony Martial:

From one Monaco star to one former Monaco star, Anthony Martial is the man to look up to if United fail to sign Ivan Perisic. The Frenchman was signed two seasons back and has shown the strong potential he possesses. He was out of form last season, but this season he has looked sharper and better. With more game time and sharpness, Martial can become one of United’s key players this season, and that is why United won’t have much to worry in case they fail to sign Perisic.
