Manchester United will no rush into any panic signings in the January transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils have acquired the services of a Spanish consultancy service to help the club with their overhaul of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

The same article states that the Madrid-based company Drilab is already being used by over a dozen clubs in La Liga and Championship outfit Nottingham Forest.

According to the same story, Manchester United are ready to adopt modern technology as other top clubs such as bitter rivals Liverpool FC have done over the past five or six years.

The Daily Mail go on to report that the Red Devils want to follow Liverpool FC’s blueprint and show patience in pursuit of the right targets, just as Jurgen Klopp did in pursuit of Virgil van Dijk.

The story adds that Manchester United want to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele but the Red Devils are prepared to wait for his £71m asking price to drop rather than splash a huge fee on the former Celtic man in January.

Manchester United are in 12th place in the Premier League table ahead of their clash against league leaders Liverpool FC at Old Trafford next Sunday.
