Manchester United still need to sign a couple of players.
But, after a year at the club, Louis’s side is taking shape and it has a far more substantial look about it than a year ago.
Of course there have been massive changes at Manchester United and different players take time to settle in.
One player who that definitely applies to is Luke Shaw.
After such a big move last summer he looked a little lost at times last season.
And every time the Manchester United left back was about to get up some steam the got injured once more.
But he took a fitness coach away with him in the summer and what a difference it has made.
Not only does he look bigger this year but he is also gliding up and down that wing almost effortlessly.
He’s got the ball control and pace of a winger but is also already a very accomplished defender.
We always felt that this guy was going to be a superstar at Manchester United, despite genuine concerns at some stages last season from areas of the media.
But he’s come back fitter and sharper and Louis van Gaal has clearly given him a vote of confidence this season – told him that the position is his.
And he’s been one of the stand out performers for Manchester United in this campaign.
He not only wins most tackles but loves to run into the heart of the opponent when they back off expecting him to make the pass.
He’s a wonderful weapon for Manchester United and we feel that we have only had a small taster of what he is capable of so far.
Luke Shaw is comfortably the most improved footballer at Manchester United and he is going to be a huge player for the club.
