Man Utd would’ve filled Lukaku’s void by signing this burly Spanish free agent to lead the line – Agreed?

Why Manchester United should sign Fernando Llorente

According to a report in the Daily Express, Manchester United were being linked with a move for Fernando Llorente, who is a free agent and would be an ideal stop-gap solution to life without Romelu Lukaku.

United will have to depend a lot on their defence this season but someone like Llorente would have been perfect to destabilize the opponents’ set-up with his ability in the air and threat from set-pieces.

Not to mention, United already have Harry Maguire, who is one of the best players in the air in the Premier League and the task of marking both of them from set-pieces will be nearly impossible.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his short time at the club has shown a lot of tactical flexibility as he inherited a very large squad with players of varying attributes. He has already trimmed it down and is likely to continue doing so while he’s at the club, as he’s shown a clear blueprint for how he wants his side to play.

United have some of the quickest players in the league players with such attributes are perfect for big games like in the game against Chelsea but against teams that sit back and soak up pressure, there will be a need for more penetration through creativity or disruption.

Llorente showed in his time at Spurs that he’s the man for the big moments and can make a massive difference off the bench. Buying a player like Llorente could be the difference between qualifying with a Champions League finish and just missing out.
