Manchester United have shown great progress under Jose Mourinho this season, rediscovering the fighting spirit and feisty performances that seemed beyond them under Louis van Gaal, but they’re still some way from being the finished article.
That was evident against Chelsea in the quarter-final of the FA Cup; United were hindered by going a man down to a red card, but they still lacked the match-winning quality required to produce something special against the Premier League champions in waiting.
Accordingly, the summer transfer window could be a huge one for Mourinho as he attempts to move the Red Devils squad closer towards his own win-at-all-costs philosophy. But rather than taking a punt on someone untested at Old Trafford, would the Portuguese be better off bringing a former star back to the club?
United took that approach with world-record signing Paul Pogba last summer and there are plenty more former players who have excelled since leaving Old Trafford. With that in mind, let us know which ex-players you’d like to see return to United this summer by voting below, and we’ll publish the results later this week!
