Towards the end he played more. I'm confused by United's transfer strategy here to be honest. They are unlikely to get Modric. They weren't going to get Fabregas. It's like they are targeting players they know they won't get.
It seems like flailing to find someone, anyone, who can play the DLP. Yet there are so many good options. They could go after Cabaye, or Marvin Martin, or Steven Defour or Ivan Rakitic, among many other players. Maybe they need a star signing as a sign of intent or something. They would do fine to get Felliani too. They just need a midfielder.

Have you guys seen any of the players I mentioned? All are international quality. Defour was heavily linked with Man U before he broke his foot. Rakitic is an underrated player who has good long range passing. Martin has a great final ball and Cabaye is a good B2B player. They aren't on Fabregas or Modric level yet, but even both those players have struggled in La Liga where their technical skills give them no advantage in particular.
