Manchester United is confirmed in the race to sign a World Cup champion, the player in question is the Argentinian, Alexis Mac Allister. The other two clubs competing for this player are Arsenal and Liverpool, and the estimated value of Mac Allister is sixty-one million euros.
The midfielder is currently at Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, making 24 appearances in the current season, delivering a total of eight goals and one assist. After a good performance in the World Cup, making his way into the starting eleven of the national team, Alexis was set a priority for the big clubs, because of his attributes, but more importantly because of his way to adapt to any scheme proposed by the coach.
What benefits does he bring to Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag´s plans?
The Dutch coach is known for wanting his teams to be vertical at the time of the attack, but when they have the ball and need possession, he uses players that can fit that description, and move the ball with patience from one side of the peach to another, until the time for the team to go forward come again.
Alexis Mac Allister is well-known for being good with the ball at his feet, changing the ball direction, or making a winning pass for his striker but also, when the team loses the ball, and you have to retreat, he is a very committed player and will always help in the recovery of the ball.
What is the problem with signing this player?
There are two problems with the Argentinian midfielder, the first one, is that Liverpool FC is running ahead of the negotiation with the player, as they are currently in talks with his manager, leaving Manchester United with their back behind the wall if they don’t hurry and start moving their cards. And the second problem, that will bring this player, is the overbooking of players in the midfield zone, where in case of closing this deal, the Red Devils will have to move some players to the side.
