Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is expected to be armed with an enormous transfer kitty this summer which could exceed £200 million. But who will the club sign to return them to past glories from next season and beyond? Well, FullTimeDEVILS have offered five potential acquisitions to make their club great once more.

The maiden first-team signing of the Van Gaal era looks almost certain to be Luke Shaw, and the Southampton full-back is one of the stars to have been outlined as capable of reviving the club when the new campaign begins.

Manchester United appear likely to have to pay £30 million to sign Shaw, who was been called into England’s World Cup squad aged only 18, and the defender’s recruitment is set to spark something of a flurry of deals at Old Trafford.

Following the departures of club icons and defensive stalwarts Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, the signing of reinforcements at centre-back would appear to be imperative. Mehdi Benatia could be that player, although the Roma defender has been more extensively linked with Manchester City.

As has been a priority for some time, buying a creative midfielder of some repute remains a priority for Manchester United. FullTimeDEVILS reckon Marco Reus and Arturo Vidal could provide the creativity and goals lacking from the middle of the park, with the duo able to score 33 times between them last season.

Ed Woodward & Co have also been urged to pursue a move for James Rodriguez, with the Monaco player able to offer goals and assists across a variety of attacking midfield positions. The Colombia international makes up FullTimeDEVIL’s transfer dossier - what do you make of it?
