Manchester United’s season ended on the worst possible note on Sunday afternoon.
A 2-0 defeat at the hands of relegated Cardiff City, at Old Trafford, was a pitiful end to what has been a dreadful and worrying run of form from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
The Red Devils finish the season sixth in the Premier League table, 32 points behind champions Manchester City, on a run of six games without a victory.
They’ve only managed to win two of their last 12 matches and a squad overhaul is essential this summer.
We already know that Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera are leaving the club this summer and several others are certain to follow.

"The last couple of months have been extremely hard for the team, the club and for the players,” Solskjaer was quoted as saying by BBC Sport after the match.
"More or less the only positive from today is that the season is over. We meet again on 1 July and we will work back to where we belong.
"To reach the leaders it will take a long time. For ourselves, the short-term focus in the league will be getting into the top four.
"We have got the Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup to go for a trophy because Manchester United can't go many years without winning a trophy. Jose [Mourinho] won the Europa League last and that is a realistic ambition.
"In the league, the points we are behind the top two, they have been excellent, those two. Absolutely exceptional. And we are five or six points behind Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea. They are the ones we have to make sure we catch up and don't let anyone closer to us.”
Despite United’s disastrous end to the 2018/19 campaign, the players and coaching staff still did a lap of honour after full-time.
Many fans, to their credit, stayed and applauded the team.
However, there was an unsavoury incident involving a few angry supporters and Paul Pogba once the lap of honour had ended.
A video was posted online which shows one fan shouting at Solskjaer to get rid of Pogba.
Others can be heard calling him a disgrace and telling him to “f*** off” in the footage, which has been shared across social media.
Needless to say, this wasn’t appreciated by Pogba, who pointed back at the irate fans and put his finger to his lips before walking off down the tunnel.

Another video has also emerged showing a fan shouting at Pogba: "All this f****** Instagram. You're s****, mate. Pack your bags and f*** off!"
Pogba did well to keep his cool...
There are many United fans who wouldn’t be bothered if that’s Pogba’s final appearance in a red shirt following his below-par performances over the past couple of months.
