Amazingly though only one per cent of fans said the squad is adequate the way it is, while two per cent said Van Gaal still needs more than the five new squad members he already has this window.

A whopping 30 per cent thought United still needed to spend between £75-100 million get the squad complete.

Over 80 per cent of fans that took part in the poll said a striker needs to be Van Gaal's number one priority while a smaller number of eight per cent said it should be a winger.

Surprisingly though only six per cent said United need a centre-back, it seems the boys at the back Chris Smalling and Daley Blind are doing the job for the fans so far this season.

When asked who would be their top target, an astonishing 50 per cent of supporters said Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller while 15 per cent said it would be Borussia Dortmund winger Reus.

High street bookies Paddy Power make it 4/6 for 25-year-old Muller, to make United his next club when he decides to move on from Bayern.
