Player: Kevin Strootman | Club: Manchester United
Sir Alex Ferguson has seen his side come roaring back this season to almost certainly reclaim the Premier League title from rivals Manchester City.
However, next season will see the likely retirement of Paul Scholes and, with the continuing fitness worries of Darren Fletcher, they will be without significant quality and experience.
Holland international Strootman has the necessary energy and quality to bring something special to the Old Trafford midfield. His physicality and box-to-box style would add an element of drive in the centre of midfield that has been missing at Manchester United for some time.
