But it was the marquee signings themselves that have made Man United fans jump with excitement:
With Schweinteiger and Schneiderlin, ManU are looking scary now. We need to invest our money for the “now” instead of more youth

Can’t wait for Spurs on the opening day of the season. Watching Darmian, Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger make their debuts will be lovely.

Schneiderlin to Man United looks like a terrific signing. Darmian, Schweinsteiger & Morgan inside the space of 48 hours. Efficient & astute.

Man United has a pretty darn good roster right now, and if they can keep things together, they can make a serious run at the Premier League title during the 2015-16 season.
