Manchester United have had a shocking season to say the least, and so it should be a year to forget.

For me they need to now focus on building a new squad for next year, but perhaps not with the world-beating stars they've been linked with thus far but rather some lesser known but potential world future stars.

Here's who I believe United would benefit from bringing in at the season's end:

Defence:

Schalke 04 centre back Joel Matip. For one he's a tall, strong and a defensively sound presence who could assist in fixing the issues that face United with Nemanja Vidic leaving and Rio Ferdinand close to retirement. They leave behind only Johnny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, whom aren't proving so great at the moment.

PSV full back Jetro Willems is also a quick defender who has bags of potential and could be the perfect long term replacement for Patrice Evra. At only 19 he could well be there for 10+ years and develop into a world class left back

Midfield:

Radja Nainggolan. Currently on loan at Roma, the central midfielder from Belgium could be a great option for a defensive player, which United need for the future with Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher at the wrong end of their careers.

Finally we have Ajax's Viktor Fischer. The last Ajax import to the north west just happened to be close to breaking records so maybe he'd be a great buy. Fischer is a great dribbler and just like Suarez he could do with a better league and more challenging defenders to make him a better player.

Who do you think United should look to bring in? Let us know in the comment box below...
