After last summer's huge spending spree at Manchester United, recent reports have suggested that the Red Devils are set to splash the cash once again in 2015.
There's no doubt about it, Louis van Gaal's side are not the finished article just yet, so it's not surprising that they've been linked with a whole host of players from around Europe.
In fact, a number of United's reported transfer targets were involved in European action over the last couple of days, so we're going to take a look at how they got on.
Manchester United targets
Despite the fact that Arjen Robben is now 30-years-old, Manchester United continue to be linked with the flying Dutchman. After all, Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal knows the player extremely well, so it's not surprising that he wants him at Old Trafford.
And, as Bayern proved too strong for CSKA last night, Robben replaced Thomas Muller at the start of the second half. The Dutchman certainly played a key role in proceedings as he was involved in both of his side's second half goals.

Once again, it's not surprising that Louis van Gaal has been linked with Kevin Strootman. After all, like Robben, the Manchester United boss enjoyed a fine relationship with the midfielder throughout his time with the Dutch national side.
And, despite the fact that Strootman didn't feature in Roma's defeat to Manchester City last night, Manchester United fans would have been interested in the result. After all, with Roma now out of Europe's elite competition, Red Devils fans will be hoping the club can land the midfield ace sooner rather than later.
Midfield ace William Carvalho continues to be linked with a move to the Premier League, and it appears that Manchester United are interested in his signature.
However, as Sporting crashed out of the Champions League last night, Carvalho had a night to forget on English soil. In truth, he failed to make his mark against the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Co.
There's no doubt about it, Manchester United's back-line is in desperate need of improvement. Diego Godin, then, would prove quite the coup for Louis van Gaal, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club can take him out of La Liga.
And, as Godin starred at the heart of Atletico's defence in Turin against Juventus, his side secured a 0-0 draw and ultimately top place in Group A. The experienced Uruguayan continues to prove his worth on the elite stage, so would prove the ideal signing for United.
