Jose Mourinho has already made the important signing of Victor Lindelof this summer but is by no means finished in the transfer market.
Here is a potential XI next season containing all the regularly named targets so far from this transfer window.
This is, of course, just a hypothetical starting XI and will not be what supporters see as their side walks out to face West Ham United in August, but it does provide a useful indication of the team – and ethos – Mourinho is trying to build at Old Trafford.
Having Fabinho and Matic, not to mention Ander Herrera as a regular feature, alongside Paul Pogba will give the Frenchman license to roam forward at will – something he couldn’t do on occasion last season.
The combination of the industrious Perisic on the right hand side side and the skilful Rodriguez on the left provides a tantalising blend of attacking craft and one that will, with Pogba joining in attack as well, supplement the deadly Alvaro Morata in front of goal.
