Fans’ view: Who would your top three summer signings for Manchester United be?

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United have thrown money at their problems in recent years and it is unlikely this will change when the next transfer window comes along in the summer.

Despite the expensive acquisitions of players such as Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata, Angel di Maria, Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera, Louis van Gaal’s squad is horribly imbalanced.

The issue has led to Wayne Rooney playing in midfield, Daley Blind playing at left-back and Di Maria playing up front at various points this term.

It is clear United will need to spend once again in the summer and with that in mind, we asked our Twitter followers who their top three signings would be:

It seems as if all fans are agreed on the type of players that United need, with the only issue being what calibre of player the club can attract.

Of course, in a perfect world United would be signing the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Paul Pogba but things can pan out differently in reality.

Instead, van Gaal may look to Memphis Depay, who he knows from his time with the Dutch national team and Nathaniel Clyne, who is nearing the end of his contract and knows the Premier League well.

When it comes to world-class talent, Pogba seems to be the most realistic option as his agent has said on numerous occasions that he could well leave Juventus at the end of the season.
