Manchester United fans are convinced that Ron Vlaar would help their team a lot. He probably would, but they still don't have him.

Apparently some Manchester United fans are blogging about the fact that Ron Vlaar would be a perfect fit for their club. How do I know this? Well, because I saw this headline on NewsNow:

And you know what? They're probably right! Ron Vlaar could certainly help a struggling, mid-table Manchester United side. But so could plenty of other players. Let's investigate, shall we?

Players who could help Manchester United

  • Ron Vlaar
  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
  • Christian Benteke
  • James Rodríguez
  • David Luiz
  • Branislav Ivanovic
  • Ryan Bertrand
  • Gareth Bale
  • Lionel Messi
  • Mario Götze
  • Diego Costa
  • Neymar
  • Mesut Özil
  • Angel Di María
  • Sergio Agüero
  • Arjen Robben

Now, for the sake of completeness, let's look at another list:

Players Manchester United don't have now and probably won't have any time soon

  • Ron Vlaar
  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
  • Christian Benteke
  • James Rodríguez
  • David Luiz
  • Branislav Ivanovic
  • Ryan Bertrand
  • Gareth Bale
  • Lionel Messi
  • Mario Götze
  • Diego Costa
  • Neymar
  • Mesut Özil
  • Sergio Agüero
  • Arjen Robben

But that doesn't really tell the whole story. One final list to show the progress they're making:

Players Manchester United actually have who could help them

  • Angel Di María

Hey, it's a start!

Now go away, United fans. Vlaar is ours and you can't have him until this summer at least.
