The January transfer window has been a quiet one for Manchester United as they remain adamant about not spending too much mid-season.

Christian Eriksen suffered an ankle injury against Reading in United’s 3-1 win in the FA Cup. The Dane has been a crucial part of Erik ten Hag’s midfield and his absence could prove to be costly in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, Donny van de Beek is out for the rest of the season.

But as things stand, the club’s hierarchy aren’t looking to sign a new midfielder. Wout Weghorst is likely to be United’s only first-team signing this month. The Dutch striker has joined the club on loan from Burnley.

While United remain quiet with regard to strengthening their senior side, they’ve made a proactive move to improve their options at youth level.

The Red Devils have agreed a deal to sign Cardiff City forward Gabriele Biancheri.

Biancheri, who has played for Wales at youth level, isn’t the only talented forward to move to United from a Welsh club in recent years. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Premier League giants signed Daniel James from Championship outfit Swansea City.

The Wales international left Old Trafford for Leeds United in 2021 and is currently playing for Fulham alongside former United academy star Andreas Pereira.
