Manchester United facing defensive crisis

Manchester United have suffered a massive injury blow

Defender Harry Maguire is set for up to two months on the sidelines after suffering a torn hip muscle.

The 26 year old picked up the injury int he first half of Saturday's draw with Wolves in the FA Cup, but insisted on playing on, making the injury worse.

It now means boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has just two fit centre halves available - Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof, with the red devils boss now looking at bringing in a loan signing in the transfer window.

Meanwhile reports this morning suggest that United are about to launch a £20m bid for Tottenham Midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The Denmark playmaker is out of contract in the summer, and United are hoping to land the midfielder in January.
