Manchester United might be set for a busy January transfer window as they are reportedly planning to bring in three players next month.

Manchester United know that it is difficult to bring in quality players in January. But that has not stopped them in the past from completing some brilliant deals in the winter transfer window.

Of course, the name of Bruno Fernandes comes to mind immediately. The Portuguese playmaker arrived from Sporting CP last January and has set the Premier League on fire since then. Those with a good memory will also remember that the club managed to sign both Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra in January of 2006.

And according to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils could be looking to repeat that trick at the turn of the year by signing three players in the winter transfer window.

Not many would have expected United to be in the midst of a title race this season but their win against Wolves has left them just two points behind leaders Liverpool. As a result, it might be necessary for them to bring in some reinforcements in January. And that could come in the form of Kieran Trippier, Max Aarons and Moises Caicedo.

United have seen the effect that Alex Telles’ arrival has had on the performances of Luke Shaw and they will be hoping that brining in Trippier will have the same effect on Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Norwich City’s Aarons has also been a standout performer in the Championship this season and could be about to be rewarded with a move to Old Trafford next month. On the other hand, Caicedo has been linked with a move to United for quite a while. And it looks only a matter of time before the 19-year-old wonderkid seals a switch to the Premier League.
