Ed Woodward didn’t fulfill the pre-World Cup publicity; Manchester United failed to make the two acquisitions prior to the World Cup that were so widely rumoured. Yet, the club’s executive vice chairman did much to quell significant criticism of his performance in the marketwhen United signed Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera for fees totalling more than £55 million last week.

The two acquisitions will fill significant holes at left-back and in central midfield, although the club’s performance last season suggests a significant gap between United and Premier League champions Manchester City. Indeed, United may well be on the look-out for a new central defender, reserve full-back, tough tackling midfielder and a winger this summer. United’s budget may not stretch that far – so what’s the priority?

CB is most critical at the moment

Beej199 - July 3, 2014 Reply

Cleverly, Carrick, Felliani, Herrera, Anderson, Fletcher


Smalling, Evans, Jones, Keane

Which players would be first on the teamsheet? That dictates the priority area for me.

Hummels please followed by Vidal

Once Van Gaal returns from winning the world cup – is it not a given that he’ll sign the entire dutch back line?

Paddy McCoy - July 4, 2014 Reply

Get rid of the slack. Champions 2015. Simples!

Well we need Hummels then Vidal, then Di Maria (who real madrid are trying to sell to us for 50m euros) then maybe De Vrij or Vermaelean. = extreme summer

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that United is lacking two good centerbacks.

Please don’t count on that useless Smallings and Jones.

Rohan - July 4, 2014 Reply

I think we should trust Smalling and Jones as a CB pair. Let them have at least 10-15 games together at CB.
We did pay quite a bit for Jones it would seem like a waste if we don’t test him out in his favorite position.
