The 2013/14 season is not one Manchester United fans will be keen to look back on any time soon.
A seventh-placed finish, a sacked manager and a host of unwanted broken records summarise what will have been the worst campaign in living memory for many Manchester United supporters.
Even the appointment of Ryan Giggs as interim manager for the final four games of the season did little to lift the mood around Old Trafford, with a flat home defeat to Sunderland representing another moment to forget.
Louis van Gaal has been installed as the favourite to take over the reigns permanently, but with the World Cup just around the corner, his appointment may not be confirmed for some time.
That means the club look set to go ahead with their planned transfer business, despite not having a full-time boss in place.
One transfer deal that looks set to be all but tied up is the £27 million capture of Southampton left back Luke Shaw.
With Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand all on their way out of Old Trafford, the defence looks set to be the first stage of the rebuilding process.
But with so many changes needed this summer, who else will be following Shaw to Old Trafford?
