January transfer thread

This looks to be an interesting January window. With the injuries to the Manchester United squad, I look forward to seeing if Sir Alex Ferguson will look for a solution or decide to wait it out for the return to fitness of all the casualties. It is a similar situation to 2009(I believe) when Ferguson decided not to spend when there was a dearth of defending options due to injury.

The one place I, and I'm sure everyone else, pray a replacement is pursued is central midfield. The loss return of Paul Scholes is still being felt and the long term illness of Darren Fletcher just adds to the lack of options. The sight of Rafael in central midfield is something I hope to never witness again. Let's all hope a quality addition is found in this window to help for the run-in.
