Manchester United has been under fine form under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Saturday’s victory against Southampton was Ole’s thirteenth win in sixteen games as a Manchester United boss. With the Norwegian likely to secure a permanent job at Old Trafford, he would be looking in the transfer market to improve his squad.
The 46-year-old must add some quality players to his team to take the Red Devils to the next level and make them title challengers again. One of Ole’s major transfer activities in the coming window would be related to Alexis Sanchez.
The Chile international has struggled to find his old form at Old Trafford after joining the club from Arsenal last January. Earning approximately £300,000 per week plus bonuses, he is the Premier League’s highest paid player.
Pablo Sarabia: Alexis Sanchez Replacement?
Player Profile: Pablo Sarabia
The 26-year-old attacker has been Sevilla’s stand-out performer this season. He has scored eight and assisted nine goals this season. The attacking midfielder is one of Europe’s best in his position currently. He is a constant threat from the right side of the pitch. The Spaniard likes to cut inside and score goals from outside the box. He possesses prodigious passing skills which makes him one of the best attacking players in the world.
The Sevilla man is a natural finisher of the ball. He has a knack of finding the back of the net whenever he shoots towards the goal. His through balls are always spot on and the weight of all his through balls is always precise. The attacking midfielder is an indirect set-piece threat as he likes to nod in headers from the set-pieces.
Nonetheless, the midfielder’s movement off the ball is absolutely superb which makes him a very difficult player to mark. Although Sevilla are sixth in the La Liga table, Sarabia has performed consistently well for his side. He has caused many problems even to the best defences in the world.
Perfect for Manchester United?
At Manchester United, Sarabia can be a like-to-like replacement for Alexis Sanchez. The Spaniard has the ability to be an instant hit at Old Trafford. He can combine well with the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and a rejuvenated Romelu Lukaku.
The team always lacked a quality right-sided attacker and Sarabia can solve this problem for the Red Devils. He has the potential in him which could take the team to the next level and make them real title contenders.
A move to Old Trafford will be perfect for Sarabia. Playing alongside so many quality players at Manchester United can take his to the next level. This Premier League move will help him improve his skills by playing against some quality defenders all the time.
Sarabia’s presence in the Manchester United team can provide good competition for attackers Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata. To conclude, the signing of Pablo Sarabia from Sevilla will help Ole build a fortress at Old Trafford.
