I am playing as Manchester United in January, 1st season. Although i have Evra and Fabio, I need another LB as Evra is ageing and Fabio keeps getting injured and too tired..

Already started retraining Evans as a LB, but I plan to use him as a CB along with Jones and Smalling.

I am willing to spend 20-30 mln

Please suggest who can i go for ? (Alex sandro already gone to Arsenal)
Criscito DL (great great full back)
Ansaldi DR/WB (good at everything,can also play al dl/wbl)
Romario DR/WB (one for the future)
Aly Cissokho from Lyon , i payd for him 10 mil in my 1st season with tottenham and he had an average rating of 7.20 .in 2nd seasons he was amaizng with a rating of 7.45!!! certainly worth it, i think is the best LB in the game after marcelo:) . GOOD LUCK:D
In my 2nd season at PSG, I was offered Marcelo for £19m, got him for £15.75m only on 64k a week too.. Give it a try maybe as R. Madrid now have Coentrao!
Thank you all for your suggestions, U guys rock!

Will try getting Marcelo or Aly cissokho ! Any idea how would Bale do a LB ?
kyle naughton from tottenham maybe?? he plays as a RB/RWB but can also be used on the left
Bale is too expensive for a LB in my opinion as Tottenham won't let go of him easily. Better off using him as AML. Had him as AML in my GB U23 squad at the Olympics and was great! Got an assist in the 2-1 win against Brazil in the final!
i agree with you. using bale as a LB is just a waste of his talent and of you;re money
or try tremoulinas from bordeaux
on my game Trémoulinas isn't that good but I have known him to be really good on previous versions. Hopefully this is a one off!
Cissokho is a definitely a good buy got him for £10m at Arsenal and in my first season had a rating of 7.20. If you wanna go get a younger LB look at Lucas Digne from Lille. Another good young right back is Danny da Costa you can get him for about £3m. Because they're young you can train them to other positions easier, takes a season approx. especially if you play them there often.
Bale is a quite good Winger but not the best. But he's the best LB of the game! I have him in my second season with Paris, got him for 40M£ ok but he's got such amazing stats: he scored in free kick, he's very good to kick corner and assist a lot! Moreover, he's a good defender! I had Criscito or Cissokho but Bale is way much better!
Leighton Baines can support while you are attacking, defend when you don't have the possesion, and score penalties and freekicks. I got him for 25m Euros. He is English.
i bought philip lahm, he is unbelievable. he doesnt let anyone through and he terrorizes the wing all the time in attacking movements but he is very expensive. i got him for liverpool and i payed 50m 48months, 150k wages. i know its a lot for a left back but i wanted one of the best and i think its the hardest position to find a world class player in the game...
