Having spent over £200 million on new playing staff since being in the hotseat at Old Trafford, Louis van Gaal has been making a large statement in the transfer market and with this brings certain pressure.
In truth, United are always under to pressure to win silverware by their loyal band of supporters and given the fact the last trophy they won was the Community Shield under David Moyes – if you can even count that – there is an onus on the Red Devils to stop the rot this term.
This summer, Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Sergio Romero have all arrived at Old Trafford but despite these five new incomings, the papers suggest United are far from finished in the market.
Still requiring a centre back, striker, a potential replacement for David De Gea, not to mention the papers linking Lucas Biglia with Manchester United this week, United fans haven’t known a summer like this in a long time.
Given their fans often refer to them as the biggest club in the world, it is no surprise that United are linked with an entire plethora of transfer targets each and every summer, so much so that we’ve devised an entire XI’s worth of them here.
