You could forgive Manchester United fans for thinking that aside from Real Madrid, is is now their side that also boasts something of a Galactico policy after they read today that the Red Devils are chasing the signings of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sergio Ramos this summer.
What is somewhat strange this summer is the fact that most of England’s elite clubs are trailing after completely different transfer targets altogether which isn’t often the case with the Premier League’s superpowers usually trailing after the same targets.
Arsenal are closing in on Petr Cech while monitoring Morgan Schneiderlin, Liverpool have signed James Milner and Danny Ings, Chelsea are set to wrap up the signing of Radamel Falcao while Manchester City continue to play their own version of Fantasy Football after declaring an interest in England pair Raheem Sterling and Jack Wilshere.
At this point, our resident United fans concede that while Schweinsteiger and Ramos would be wonderful additions in positions that require strengthening, it will be an extremely difficult task for Louis van Gaal to prise them away from their current clubs and this is worrying fans somewhat.
Memphis Depay is already in the bag of course but United fans are chasing more concrete news of bids that have been submitted for a new centre back and a central midfielder.
All of this news has got us thinking just which current Manchester United players need to up their game next season in 2015/16 in order to fend off competition from potential new arrivals in Louis van Gaal’s squad.
That’s why today, our Red Devils fans have listed five United players who must improve their performances next term. Do you agree with their selections?
