A number of Man Utd fans make Emre Can suggestion; former LFC midfielder unhappy at Juventus

Desperate times call for desperate measures, eh?

That what my initial thought after seeing tweets from Manchester United fans suggest former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can would make for a good January signing.

Currently at Juventus, the Germany international is not happy about being omitted from the Italian side’s Champions League squad.

Juve manager Maurizio Sarri has decided against involving Can amongst his midfielders, unlike summer signings Aaron Ramsey and Adrian Rabiot — both whom arrived on Bosmans this summer — clearly pushing the German down the pecking order.

Can is quoted as telling journalist Kerry Hau: “I am shocked and angry. Last week, the club promised me something else, yesterday the coach called me and told me in less than a minute that I was not in the squad. I can not explain it, I have not been given any reason.”

Aged 25, had he known he wouldn’t be involved in the Champions League with Juventus this season, Can could have easily pushed for a transfer elsewhere.

Last season he made a total of 37 appearances for the Serie A champions, but the majority of those were from the bench.

But these fans United below clearly feel Can could strengthen the midfield at Old Trafford but he’d have to accept a drop to the Europa League, and it doesn’t look like the Red Devils will be returning to the Champions League anytime soon.
