The Red Devils have not found success in the transfer market and can face further embellishment as five players can leave the club on a free.
Sir Alex Ferguson ensured that Manchester United was a tight ship. There were not many areas of concern and the old Scotsman had everything under control. He left with a final Premier League triumph and Old Trafford has not been the same since.
David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have sat on the managerial hot seat. But to limited success. With triumphs in unheralded cup competitions, the fans from red part of Manchester have not had much to sing about.
Title triumphs are title triumphs. But for the Red Devils, the Premier League is the holy grail. They have usurped Liverpool from the perch of English football and then fallen flat.
And all of this can be attributed to poor dealings in the transfer market. The squad is in disarray and now five Manchester United players will be out of contract in summer.
