With the defence, against Swansea City, not being up to scratch and at times looking a little more than suspect, we`d be very surprised if Louis van Gaal didn`t make a move into the transfer market quickly.

However, with those within the walls of Old Trafford intimating that there is no Manchester United interest in bringing Madhi Benatia to the club, the press has identified another supposed target.

The defender identified, by the press, as someone who could step forward and do a decent job is Phillipe Mexes.

Mexes is currently on the books of AC Milan and is seen as a cheaper option than those previously mentioned although at 32 years of age, he has to be considered a short term option rather than long term.

We`ll report back further if we hear anything else relating to the subject matter.
