As summer transfer windows go, this one is set to be massive for Manchester United. In a matter of days the doors to Old Trafford and the rest of the Premier League will swing wide open, allowing sides up and down the country to bring in new recruits and populate Sky Sports’ iconic ‘yellow bar’.

With Ander Herrera seemingly on his way to Old Trafford from Athletic Bilbao, some outlets are mooting Sami Khedira as the next top target on Louis van Gaal’s ever-growing hit-list. An all-round midfielder needed after the lack of options and energy in the area was ruthlessly exposed under David Moyes, and the Germany international would certainly add a combative edge to the Red Devils’ engine room.

So with a new central duo potentially in place, whom else should United be targeting? As it’s a warm summer afternoon we’ve done the thinking for you, and here are six players we see as fit to follow Khedira to the Theatre of Dreams…

    Sami Khedira , what a step backward that would be , a poor mans carrick at best , I think 90% of united fans would be majorly disappointed with this transfer.

      Sami Khedira is a brilliant defensive mid.. Great read of the game, tall, strong, great tackler. His distribution probably isn’t as good as 2012/2013 Carrick (Carrick declined last season in my opinion), but he offers a solid backbone to the midfield, which will allow more attacking midfielders to go forward.
