The Greatest Manchester United Signings Of The Post Alex Ferguson Era

The Greatest Manchester United Signings Of The Post Alex Ferguson Era

United finished sixth in the Premier League and weren't much of a threat domestically.

The 35-year-old confounded the doubters last season, plundering 28 goals before a serious knee injury brought his maiden campaign at Old Trafford to a shuddering halt.

Following the failed tenures of David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal, Manchester United tasked Jose Mourinho as the man to bring back the glory days to Old Trafford.

New signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic will be crucial to Manchester United's title aspirations in the upcoming Premier League season.

Chelsea star Willian has confirmed that Manchester United have held talks to sign him but added that negotiations fell apart due to Chelsea's reluctance to sell him.

"He wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season".

We got a central defender who can play in many other positions, which is important.

Mourinho acknowledged this week that Real Madrid's Gareth Bale was out of reach after the Welshman started for the Spanish side in their 2-1 European Super Cup win over United.

Hearing Loss of US Diplomats In Cuba Blamed On Covert Sonic Device
Relations between the United States and Cuba broke down in 1961 at the height of the Cold War and the U.S. embassy was closed. Later, after the departure of some American staff, USA officials asked two Cuban diplomats to leave Washington in response.

"Between the players we have lost and the players we have got, I think we are in a similar situation but with more experience of working together and a much better pre-season".

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea".

While Lukaku's addition will definitely ease some of United's goal-scoring woes, it's the other attacking options that will need to step up for them to become a dominant force in the league: Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan give Mourinho plenty of options up front but at least a couple of them need to score in the double figures in the next 10 months.

"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying".

"I am happy that the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts and, if until Aug 31 the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive, I will not moan".

"It's not because I have always done it [won the title in his second season] that I am going to do it again", he said.

"Victor can play right-back and can play central midfielder, we got a central midfielder, we got a striker, obviously the 25 per cent would be a player for another position playing from the sides".
