29 players Manchester United and Man City can sign for free in January transfer window


The January transfer window is open for business and clubs across the Premier League will be looking to bolster their ranks, including Manchester United and Manchester City.

United’s need for reinforcements was magnified once again during Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to City, while the Blues themselves have struggled for defensive stability this season and that has allowed Liverpool to cement themselves as clear favourites for the Premier League title.

As such, United and City are open to doing business in January should the right players become available, although both clubs acknowledge that major mid-season deals are rare.

The January transfer window also presents the opportunity for clubs to get ahead of the curve by signing overseas players on pre-contract agreements, with those players then arriving for free in the summer.

This is something Italian giants Juventus have developed a reputation for, having signed Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal and Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain in the past 12 months.
