United sit fourth in the current standings, having won all of their last four games ahead of tomorrow night’s game with Southampton, and manager Louis van Gaal is determined to continue revitalising the Red Devils.
The Dutchman has already spent £150m on his squad, bringing in the likes of Angel di Maria, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Radamel Falcao, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind, and that degree of spending certainly doesn’t look likely to slow any time soon.
Here are eight players United will target to transform their side back into world beaters in the next 18 months:
