There have been a few stories this week linking Manchester United with a move for CSKA Moscow’s Milos Krasic. In fact Krasic’s agent Dejan Joksimovic has suggested Krasic would be stupid to turn down the opportunity to represent United.
Is the signing of Krasic necessary?
I like Krasic, he is a good player and impressed in the two Champions League game this season. The question is, where will Krasic fit into the team? It would be very harsh if he was to oust Valencia from the right wing spot considering the fine season the Ecuadorian has enjoyed.
Personally, I feel other positions in the squad require reinforcing rather than sign another right winger. Surely a central midfielder is a top priority. Milner or Silva seem favourite. Can Krasic play in a central role of a three man midfield? This could be an option. Could Valencia play the same role as he performs for his country? Personally, I wouldn’t like to see Valencia play in a central role due to his weak left foot. His passing ability is limited as a result which will limit creativity from midfield. A central midfielder should be equally (or adequately) comfortable on either foot.
Can Krasic play on the left? As with Valencia the arrival of the Serbian would be equally harsh on Nani. The Portuguese is finally finding his way at United; his new found confidence is clearly visibly. Nani deserves the opportunity to maintain and further develop his form from this season.
I’m not sure why we are being linked with a move for Krasic. Why so?
