Manchester United fans have been in a euphoric mood this past weekend with the news that the Red Devils have significantly revamped their midfield options with both Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin arriving at Old Trafford.
In what has been a manic last week for everybody concerned with the club, this double swoop came on the back of the news that Robin van Persie will be trading Manchester for Istanbul and Fenerbahce this coming season.
While most United fans will admit that the Dutchman looked way beyond his best last season, they are still somewhat disappointed that his hot streak at Old Trafford didn’t last for longer in tandem with the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson.
But ultimately as our landlord reminds everybody, the show must go on and on the evidence of it, Louis van Gaal is hell bent on accelerating United into this season’s title race with the eye-catching captures of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin.
Despite this pair arriving, Robin van Persie’s departure does leave the Red Devils with some work to do in the transfer market in regards to bringing in a replacement for the former Arsenal man.
At present, only Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez represent United’s first team striking options and with the latter player in talks with MLS franchise Orlando City, the Red Devils will definitely need to bring in one, if not two more strikers this transfer window.
Could any of these five be winging their way into Old Trafford any time soon however?
