Manchester United Set Sights on Handful of New Signings

Old Trafford Manchester UnitedManchester United were recently crowned as the Champions of England for the record 20th time in the history of English football. It may be an excuse for Sir Alex Ferguson to sit back and enjoy the success. The Scot, though, has proved over the years that it is not the way he operates. According to the Mirror, Ferguson is already looking at several signings to bring in over the summer, as he aims for the 21st league title. Everton defender Leighton Baines is reportedly one of the top transfer targets for Manchester United in the summer.

United are expected to spend in upwards of £50 million as the target handful of players. Even though there is not going to be a massive clear out at Old Trafford, influential players like Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes are not expected to be at the club next season. Rooney has been linked with a move to PSG, while Scholes will retire for the second time in his career. The future of players like Nani and Anderson are also in doubt to some extent.

United have already signed players like Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace with an eye for the future, but Ferguson is also keen on bringing players who will be able to slot into the first team immediately.

The enormous success of Robin van Persie is the reason behind this shift in transfer policy of the club. A few years ago, almost all Manchester United signings were under the age of 25. Now, the club is linked with established names like Leighton Baines and Radamel Falcao.

Ferguson has always tried to strengthen the squad in the summer when they have just won the league title. The upcoming summer transfer window seems to be no different, as there could be several new arrivals.

    I tink Valencia n Nani should remain @ old traford. Fergie should get wanyama, Angel Di Maria and varane to strengthen D midfield n defense. Am ok wit out strikers and i knw they will get us more goals if out midfield n wings are a bit stronger next season

    Is it true that Rooney want to leave man united?

  8. Javi Rodriguez says:

    I feel Man Utd should ship-off Anderson who was been given plenty of time to stake a first team place. Nani should also be shown the door after a string of poor performances, and a ongoing contract feud with the club. I also feel either Young or Valencia should also be sold, Young has had a very poor season he’s had fitness problems and has not scored a single goal all campaign. Antonia Valencia has not been the same player since who won Man Utd player of the season vote a couple years back. He has not been the same dazzler since returning from his injury, he has forgot how to run against his marker, has forgot how to cross and hardly ever scores nowadays. I personally am a Wayne Rooney fan and hope he stays. I hope we could bring in some really good young starlets and finish products, obviously I hope we bring Ronaldo back home or even sign Bale but let’s be realistic. In that case, with my first choice target Mario Gotze already gone Bayern Munich, i hope we could bring in the next big thing in Spanish football, Malaga’s Isco. I wish we follow up our interest in Everton’s Leighton Baines and sign him up. Kevin Strootman (23) a hard tackelling defensive midfielder, who has already captained the national dutch side will be a force in the middle of the box. Finally if we do decide to sell Javier Hernandez which I hope we don’t, but either one of Falcao or Lewandownski would be great additions. If by ant chance we can’t get Isco or Rodriguez, then I hope we could bring in Modric and Angel Di Maria!

    Man Utd Must Signing Defender Like a Matt Hummels From Dortmund
    and Midfielder Like Schweinsteiger.
