Manchester United fans went into the January transfer window full of expectation after a summer period in which they spent close to £200 million on reinforcements.
The Red Devils adopted a Galactico-like approach in the summer where they secured the signatures of world class stars such as Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, supplemented by the likes of up-and-coming talents Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo.
Reports suggested Louis van Gaal was set to enter the market once more in January with a top class central defender and a defensive midfielder his prime targets.
However, the only arrivals this winter proved to be former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes on a free transfer and Bolton Wanderers’ 21-year-old full back Andy Kellett – a signing to strengthen the club’s Under-21 side.
It may not have been the busy window everyone at Old Trafford had been expecting, especially when you consider the number of players linked over recent months.
Here we have identified the transfer XI Manchester United could have had this summer.
