With The Premier League title all but secured with ten games to play, Manchester United can afford to put a little more energy into their summer transfer plans.

After a successful pre-season last year, Sir Alex Ferguson will be keen to build further this time around, as he looks to wrestle the honour of being England’s strongest club force away from local rivals Manchester City on a permanent basis.

With Wayne Rooney reportedly on the verge of leaving Old Trafford, it could be a huge summer for the Red Devils, who cannot afford to let such a talented player exit without a replacement lined up.

As well as this, United have deficiencies at the back, an error-prone goalkeeper and are lacking a physical presence in midfield. Lots of work to do then.
