Merson: United could enter transfer market in January to add central defender on one condition
- United will try to sign a centre-back only in case they're still in the title race, says the ex-Gunner
“Who’s to say if they’re anywhere near the title challenge come Christmas or when the market opens again, they might take a chance then. They might take a chance.
“But if they’re 10 points behind or eight points behind, will they?
“I don’t think they will.”
The central defender has been a position that Jose has been desperate to find strengthening. But the window is already shut and United have to wait until winter to get someone.
