The Red Devils have been lured into a number of transfer traps over the years. Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, the club have been somewhat bedazzled by stars before bringing those players to Manchester after their peak years of performance.

Some have prospered but the large majority have encountered difficulties or impacted the growth of the team. From Bastian Schweinsteiger to Angel Di Maria to Radamel Falcao, United have generally not benefited from acquiring the services of elite names.

According to manchestereveningnews, N’Golo Kante is one of the players who is currently linked with a move to Old Trafford but despite his undeniable status as a modern great of the Premier League, there is enough evidence to suggest that his signature should be avoided.
“I think he is our key player,” said Thomas Tuchel recently, “but key, key players have to be on the pitch and he only plays 40% of games. He is our Mo Salah, van Dijk. He is our Kylian Mbappe.”
The words of the Chelsea boss capture Kante’s problem at the moment. His contributions are extremely valuable, but he’s not present enough to deliver on a regular basis.
Ultimately, although United certainly need a midfielder of his type who will primarily contribute with defensive actions against the ball, Ten Hag would likely benefit from a younger model to build around.
Identifying the next Kante would almost aid the Red Devils more than signing the real thing. Rather than the Frenchman being deemed as a legitimate target, his profile should instead act as a template for United to locate in the transfer market.JAMB Result
