However, the same West London club got thumped by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane by the same score so the Red Devils faithful may want to calm down just a little bit.
They will however refuse to calm down if reports in the Daily Express prove to be true with the national reporting that the club will launch an ambitious bid for Mats Hummels.
The Red Devils bid for the World Cup winner in the summer but saw all attempts to lure him to the club blocked by Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp.
Hummels was named Dortmund captain as a reward for his loyalty at the start of the summer but it seems that loyalty will be tested again.
It could prove a very, very busy and expensive January in Manchester with Louis van Gaal also lining up big money moves for Roma’s Kevin Strootman and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United fans. Do you think those three big money signings would complete the squad or does the team need further improvements? Let us know your thoughts below.
