As Manchester United's worst season in decades comes to an end, fans will be relieved to see a fresh manager but more importantly fresh players arrive at the club and as the transfer window fast approaches, one player can heal United's midfield misery once and for all.

The player I talk about is of course Barcelona and ex-Arsenal midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas. The Spaniard has been in great form this season, assisting 13 goals and scoring eight of his own. 

Fabregas is still relatively young at 26-years-old, so he would be a good long-term solution for the club.

He has certainly matured over the years, starting off as a very attacking-midfield player to a more defensive holding player, which is just what United need. 

For Barcelona, Fabregas plays that holding midfield role behind the likes of Andres Iniesta and alongside Xavi. His passing ability is incredible as he can pick out a pass that other players just wouldn't see.

Louis van Gaal would certainly do well to capture this man as his first Manchester United signing when he is inevitably signed as United boss. 

Fabregas would fill any hole that is left in United's midfield, especially after the purchase of Juan Mata healed some of the wounds in that position. Now, all United need is a man who can play comfortably behind Mata but also make a great attacking contributions.

Actually capturing Fabregas will be the big challenge, though, as other factors could well block any kind of transfer. 

First of all, Fabregas still has an attachment to Premier League rivals Arsenal and it is hard to imagine him joining a major rival of the Gunners.

Secondly, Fabregas is a major player in Barcelona's midfield setup and losing him will greatly affect Barca's already aging midfield. Finding a suitable replacement for the player would be quite difficult as most Barca fans know that Cesc is special.

Of course if United do complete the transfer of Fabregas this summer, he will not be the answer to all United's problems - he'll just be a really good starting point.

United's problems aren't just in midfield, with an aging poor defence a lot of change is needed in that position with the addition of several new names.

Van Gaal must also invest in a decent winger to solve United's problem in that position and signing Marco Reus in particular would be the perfect solution.

Of course this is easier said than done and it will most likely cost the Glazer family in excess  of £100 million to patch up all of United's problems.

But if they are serious about success, these are the costs that you must pay to reach that goal of European and domestic dominance.
