Manchester United are clearly one of the richest clubs in world football, though even they would be foolish to pass up the possibility of pulling off a bargain swoop.
As another season draws to a close, the contract situations of a number of stars become increasingly interesting.
Big money signings may indeed make the headlines, though the Red Devils have previously shown an aptitude in pulling off these kind of deals in the past.
Both Laurent Blanc and Michael Owen, two big name European players, have arrived upon the expiration of their deals to go on to win league titles with the club in days gone by.
Considering the fact the Red Devils have plunged £250m into the squad to little success, perhaps they should reign in the spending somewhat and scoure the free market.
They won’t, of course. But they should.
There are plenty of options out there.
