Despite Manchester United coasting to yet another title last season for the final time under the guise of Sir Alex Ferguson, pundits have often said in recent years that this United side is less than spectacular.
A particular mention is usually given to the midfield area where Sir Alex really hasn’t replaced Roy Keane since he left the club in 2005. Michael Carrick was one of the stars of the Premier League’s last campaign but beyond him question marks remain in all other positions. Anderson has been frustratingly inconsistent, Darren Fletcher is fighting to save his career at the moment and Tom Cleverley still divides fans.
On the wings Nani was used sparingly last year, Ashley Young was injured for the most part and Antonio Valencia failed to capture the sparkling form which made him arguably the best winger in the Premier League in 2011-2012. That leaves Bebe, the less said about him the better
Similarly one of the legends of that infamous era- Paul Scholes, has also retired this season. Ryan Giggs is also not getting any younger and he looks to be making the transition to a coach at the club this season. Huge boots to fill for any potential replacements.
