It’s been a horrid season in so many ways but, watching Manchester United step out in front of their massed ranks of supporters against Bayern on Tuesday evening, it gave you the strongest sense that this club is simply too big to fail.
Not least because of their spending power. As we know, Manchester United is a club in debt. But their turnover is so high that they have a massive capacity to splurge. Here are the ideal signings to get them back to the top of the league.
Luke Shaw – If Moyes can sign Shaw for Manchester United his summer paned will be off to the perfect start.
Ilkay Gundogan – He’s beeb out for most of the season but Manchester United would have to be keen on a player of his quality. A constant blur of movement, Gundogan never stops running and links things together beautifully.
Lucas Moura – Hasn’t done badly at PSG but we feel Manchester United could become his spiritual home. The fans would idolise a player of his style. He’s lighting quick, loves a trick and has great end product.
Andros Townsend – Manchester United lack pace and this guy is a speed demon. He also has a trick. Watching him run with the ball at his feet is a thing of rare beauty.
Eliaquim Mangala – Don’t mess with this guy as he is carved out of granite. He’s also impossibly quick for someone made of such a heavy stone. Another ‘must have’ player.
Marco Reus – This guy could be the icing on the cake. He’s scoring for fun at the moment and has so many qualities that he would improve even the best teams.
