United enjoyed a not-so exciting opener against Foxes Leicester City, claiming an hard earned 2-1 home victory. However after that clash, their game turned soured and spiralled into a mes.
Out of a possible 16 points, the Red Devils have amassed only eight points, putting boss Jose Mourinho in a tight corner.
The Portuguese summer hauling of recruitment was terrible. The only marquee signing to walk in this summer is Shakhtar Donestk star Fred. A disturbing sign that Mourinho, 55, will need to shop for new players when the winter window is open for business in January.
But reports floating about are saying that Mourinho has already handpicked his January candidate.
According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Mourinho is interested in bringing in Argentine star Pablo Dybala.
Dybala had an amazing but abrupt World Cup campaign for Argentina at the World Cup.
His athleticism and his dangerous bursts down the right flank is unarguably threatening.
After their underwhelming performance against Burnley, Mourinho will ensure he packs enough artillery before the second half of the season.
Dybala’s worth is around 107 million pounds. The Argentine menacing forward has stamped his mark as one of the best crop of players in the Serie A, registering 52 goals in 100 appearances for the Old Lady.
The 24-year-old will no doubt add flavour to Mourinho attacking third if signed.
