Man Utd transfer news: Sky Sports man makes Liverpool transfer claim – ‘they need it’


 That’s according to Sky Sports reporter Adam Bate, who believes the Manchester United defence is a ‘major weakness’  Table-topping Liverpool have conceded just seven goals all season in the Premier League with £75million man Van Dijk a key part of that  He has played in every match and has transformed Liverpool’s backline into the best in the country  **PREDICT FIVE RESULTS AND WIN £25,000 – FREE TO PLAY HERE** United, meanwhile, have conceded 29 goals already Even Huddersfield, who sit second bottom, have let in less.  On what United need to do when the window reopens in January, Bate told the Transfer Talk podcast: “I think you have to look at the defence because they’ve conceded more goals this season than last season in its entirety It’s a major, major weakness. “They’ve got a right-back, a teenage full-back and an aging full-back They’ve got Ashley Young playing left-back who is 33. “Virgil van Dijk transformed Liverpool and made everyone else better They do need a centre-back who is going to make his partner better.” Although it’s not just in defence where the issues are at Old Trafford  Bate added: “There are problems everywhere in that team really – even in midfield ” Paul Pogba is part of that midfield and Bate expects him to be called back into the starting line-up now Mourinho has gone  “He will get a chance under the new manager, I would imagine,” Bate said.   “It’s a tricky one with him as Mourinho did try different solutions – on the left, further forward, deeper He couldn’t find this position that would get the best out of him. “Maybe you could argue that’s part of the whole style of football they were playing but France had some success playing him with Kante, he has success playing with a Pirlo figure at Juventus  “There are options there but it’s obviously a big thing as he’s one of the biggest assets they’ve got ”
