Ahead of the summer transfer window, Manchester United are hopeful they can reinforce the central midfield position.
Given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding current midfielder Paul Pogba, the Red Devils are keen to identify possible summer targets.

Stretty News can exclusively reveal that one player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting is Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks.

Yikes, no way Winks is a target, even as a free agent.

Most likely bullshit link but I think he could be an interesting one. We should know better than most that playing for a Mourinho side can be detrimental to player performance. We have plenty of examples, Shaw being the most noticeable.

Harry winks is more pointless than Cleverly at the end of his United career. Least Tom looked a player at some point.

Someone is trying to plant a seed. I hope Woodworth does not see this.

Can't see him coming to us when Barca are also looking to reinforce their midfield

If you were to put a gun to my head then, yes, this is a good signing.

One Harry to City, and one to United. Good to see that we’re keeping pace with the champions :wenger:

Seriously though, this is clearly nonsense.

He's a bit of a nothing player isn't he?

I've seen him play in matches but I can't quite recall him doing anything. Does he do anything particularly well?

Winks was superb under Pochettino, before it all went a bit pear shaped. He struggled to really find a place under Mourinho, and ended up looking a bit shite.

A bit like Dele, really, but he never really had the opportunity under peak Poch to stand out as much.


He's not as bad as he's looked recently - and could easily turn a corner - but I think a lot of the disdain spurs fans have towards him have come from his reaction to being dropped under Mourinho. The general image is of a player that isn't self-aware of his own shortcomings or bad form. Like Eric Dier.

I just had a look at a video of his and I liked this comment :D

As expected, it was nothing but safe passes.

God no, he is honestly the most pointless player I've ever seen play in the Premier League. Also he would cost a lot more than someone like Camavinga. Hell Hannibal is already ahead of him in terms of ability for me. Garner would also be a better option too. Both of them are already here.

Maybe thats the trick. We sign Winks and then rub out his last name and write Kane and there you go we bought Harry Kane for 50 million. That's about the only reason I could imagine targeting someone as awful as Winks.

The most pointless midfielder in the history of football. Can't pass, can't dribble, can't defend. Utter crap.

He would be a nice depth signing for under 20M. Play cup games, fill in for injuries. An orthodox central midfielder who has a good attitude and motor. Poch rated him and was quite reliable in that system. Maybe Carrick sees something in him similar to when he made the switch from Spurs?

Is he the players to take the central midfield another level, paired with or without Pogba...no.
