Manchester United’s season has picked up massively since the introduction of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and they are firmly on course to make the top four come the end of the campaign.
The Red Devils will be hoping to maintain their current form in the short-term, while long-term there are issues to sort including the future of Solskjaer, as well as if the club are going to act in the summer and make some big money signings to mount a real title push next term.
The January window passed for United without any movement, and although they are playing well, there are still a few gaps in the squad which, when you look at the other clubs in contention around the league, could be improved upon.
We here at the Tavern think that United do indeed need to make some splashes in the market if they are to get to the point of challenging for the title once more, and signing a couple of big name stars might be just the way for the Old Trafford club to lift themselves back to their former status.
With that in mind, we’ve looked at TWO world class players who United should be looking to make a move for this summer…
The Juventus forward is still regarded as one of the top talents in world football, but with Cristiano Ronaldo on the books in Turin, Dybala might fancy being the main man elsewhere.
While United do have attacking talent in abundance, both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez have struggled this term, meaning a space could well open up in the summer for a new forward at Old Trafford.
Dybala fits the bill perfectly then, with his talent, match winning ability, and potential to get even better all likely to appeal to the men in charge at United.
Would it really be too awkward for the Red Devils to bring in former Liverpool man Coutinho? We think not.
The Brazilian has struggled to find his best form for the Catalan club since making a big money move, but he would slot in nicely at Old Trafford one would assume.
Capable of slotting in a number 10 role or in one of the wide forward areas, Coutinho would bring skill, goals, and assists to a team who have fine attacking players, but sometimes maybe lack someone like Coutinho who can unlock a defence out of nothing.
