Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking ahead to next season already, after another underwhelming Premier League campaign.
Thanks to a surprise West Ham defeat away at Stoke, and a rampant Southampton thrashing struggling Crystal Palace 4-1, Louis Van Gaal’s men have overtaken the Saints into 5th place and absolutely guarantee Europa League football next season.
European football can still be secured for United through winning the FA Cup however, and the club are still guaranteed at least a qualifying spot thanks to Manchester City winning the League cup earlier in the season and furthermore finishing 4th in the league.
Complicated I know. Dutchman Van Gaal will certainly want to end the season on a high however following a hit and miss season for his side, and with the former Ajax man’s future up in the air, he will certainly want to bolster his chances of remaining at the helm next season with victory tonight.
Regardless of the result – and indeed the fate of Van Gaal – United must improve next season. With the European Championships in France in July, it gives clubs across Europe a chance to scout for their summer transfer targets.
Roy Hodgson’s England are joined in Group B by Russia, Slovakia and of course Wales as the Englishman’s side will hope to bring home only their second ever major trophy.
Could Louis Van Gaal (or Jose Mourinho) find the answer to United’s problems in Group B? Our landlord thinks they can and has identified FIVE Group B players Man United must consider signing……
