After some seriously protracted negotiations for two great players Manchester United finally did the deals to bring Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera to the club.
We have absolutely no doubt that both of these players are going to improve the team and become crowd favourites at Manchester United.
But you would hope that at least three or four more players will be signed in the close season so that Manchester United can return straight into the Champions League places come May 2015.
To do that a top central midfielder will be required, a couple of defenders and possibly one more forward, of some description.
We heard about the plan A, B and C list that Louis van Gaal reportedly gave to Ed Woodward when he took the job and let’s hope that plan A includes players such as Arturo Vidal and Arjen Robben because they could make Manchester United great again.
The plan B would perhaps include players like Nigel de Jong and Dirk Kuyt may just squeeze into plan C.. but hopefully it won’t come to that!
Looking at the players that are potentialy available in the market we believe that Manchester United could feasibly get some more world stars in before the start of the season.
So assuming that Manchester United flip the nuts with new signings this summer here is what we think to be the best case scenario line up come August.
Manchester United fans: let’s know your thoughts on this. Are any or all of these players gettable?
Manchester United: (3-5-2) De Gea, Jones, Mangala, Hummels – Shaw, Herrera, Rooney, Vidal, Cuadrado – Robben, RvP
