Manchester United looking to sign a star loved by Pep Guardiola

Manchester United are looking to sign a major superstar.

Imagine this. Picture this. Pep Guardiola being in awe of a player. It doesn’t happen often. The multiple Bundesliga, La Liga and Premier League champion has worked with some of the best players in the game. When he declares someone as ‘god’ it shouldn’t be taken lightly. And that’s exactly how the Spaniard used to refer to one of Manchester United’s latest signings.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to rebuild his squad with flair and versatility. He needs players with the right mentality. Players who are winners.

A player like David Alaba certainly fits the bill. He’s someone who has won 9 Bundesliga titles, a Champions League and could be on his way to win another. The Austrian is a born winner and his talents were recognised by Pep Guardiola too. The current Man City coach was in awe of his ability whilst he managed Bayern Munich.

According to Sky Sports, United and Chelsea are both keen on bringing David Alaba to the Premier League.

The 28 year old only has a 1 year remaining on his contract and the Red Devils will be hoping to attract him to Old Trafford for a bargain price.

Not only would David Alaba be an ideal partner alongside Harry Maguire, the Austrian defender can also play at left-back which has been a problem position for United over the past few months as well as across the midfield which makes him a managers’ dream.

Alaba’s pace would be perfectly suited to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s style of play too. This move would be a no brainer for United. At 28 the Austrian star still has plenty of years left at the top.

David Alaba has the mentality that the club needs. In the semi-final in the Europa League United fell short because of their defensive frailties and their lack of experience, the current Bayern star could help to fix both.

And the icing on the cake would be the fact how bitter Pep Guardiola would feel watching his beloved player play for his arch rivals.
