Manchester United’s transfer policy over the past two years or so has been inherently flawed and has led to some of the biggest gaffes in Premier League history.
Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao being the prime examples here.
However, despite largely wasting £250m under Louis van Gaal, the Red Devils are still major players in the transfer market and won’t be far from top end talent should such individuals become available this summer.
A testament to how big an institution of world football they are, though this summer will surely be a pivotal one.
While Pep Guardiola’s arrival at Manchester City guarantees little, the Red Devils simply cannot afford to lose any further ground on their noisy neighbours.
With Arsenal and Chelsea likely to spend a lot this summer and the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool benefiting from the most high pressing hipster regimes around, the club simply have to get it right this season.
That’s not to mention Premier League champions Leicester City who will no doubt be looking to continue their sensational journey.
So, it really is now or never for Ed Woodard and company at the Theatre of Dreams.
They need to buy big players. They need to by the right players.
So, to that end, here are FOUR players Manchester United really should smash their transfer record for this summer.
