Leighton Baines, Cesc Fabregas, Juan Mata? Who could Manchester United turn to when the January transfer window opens

A look at some of the players David Moyes could go after if his squad needs strengthening in January

Manchester United made no secret of their rather unsuccessful transfer business this summer, something that was kept under wraps when Sir Alex Ferguson and former chief executive David Gill were at the helm.
