With Radamel Falcao now calling Stamford Bridge home and Robin van Persie leaving Manchester behind to join former United teammate Nani in Istanbul, Wayne Rooney is the only viable option to lead the Red Devils front line.

But is this really such a bad situation for Louis van Gaal and the rest of the back-room staff at Old Trafford that they need to bring in extra fire power?

Rooney ability 

The United forward, although being handed the captain's armband for both club and country and never really being left out in favour for another striker, has often gone underrated.

The Englishman has never gone a season scoring less than 11 goals since transferring to the Red Devils from Everton and it also seems that despite being shifted around numerous positions and playing alongside multiple strike partner, Van Gaal is to entrust his captain with the role of being his primary goal getter.

With the young James Wilson waiting in the wings and Javier Hernandez also being present as backup. should something happen to the United veteran surely there shouldn't be any worry as to who can fill his void until his return? Or should there be?

Big bid for Muller

According to Sport1, as relayed by talkSPORT, United are seriously considering making a colossal bid of €100million for Bayern Munich's Thomas Müller. Claims by the paper seem to hint towards Van Gaal's determination to convince the striker to follow his former Munich teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger to Old Trafford.

One man who stands firmly in the way of Van Gaal's ideal plan is Bayern chief Karl Heinz Rummenigge, who has already confirmed to fans of his club that he has no intention of letting Muller leave.

Either way, United fans shouldn't be too worried. Regardless of whether Muller does make that jump over The Channel or not, whoever stands in front of their freshly bolstered midfield will struggle to fail.

United fans, do you agree? Does Van Gaal need to sign Muller to succeed or is Rooney good enough? Let us know in the comments box below.
