Well, it’s been a roller-coaster of a few days in the world of football. Sir Alex Ferguson’s sudden retirement was dealt with swiftly and securely, in a bid to avoid the potential for a media circus of rumours and hearsay, and we now know that the man at the Manchester United helm next season will be David Moyes.
The firey Scot certainly deserves the opportunity, but he will be desperate to impress and assure fans that the board made the right decision within his first season and retain the Premier League title.
Whether Moyes will follow the Fergie mould or attempt to take the club in his own direction will initially be determined by his actions in the transfer window, in regards to who he will bring in and who he will kick out at Old Trafford.
We’ve complied a list of the new United gaffer’s five transfer targets for the imminent transfer window, with full details of their pros, cons, likelihood and availability.
