Raktic has enough in his locker to add to the United midfield. At 32, the only downside is his age. He does not fit the profile of the young, talented players we are looking for.
However, the Croatian has played in some of football’s biggest games alongside some of the best in the game. He would act as both an inspiration and a mentor to the younger players.
