Jose Mourinho has conducted a typically productive summer transfer window at Manchester United.
Wholesale change was anticipated upon his arrival on May 27 but no one quite expected him to have three deals - and a potential fourth - wrapped up before August.
Indeed, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have all completed moves, with Paul Pogba set to arrive in a record-breaking £100 million-plus deal.

A number of high-profile departures are now expected to coincide with the influx at United, and according to the Daily Mail, three first-team stars are likely to be axed by Mourinho.
They claim that Bastian Schweinsteiger will spearhead the exodus having arrived at the Theatre of Dreams just last summer, with Juan Mata and Memphis Depay at risk of following suit.
Like his German teammate, Depay joined the Red Devils in 2015 for £25 million but failed to impress throughout his debut campaign.
Twenty-two goals for PSV Eindhoven during the 2014/15 term suggested United had signed a future star yet he looks anything but 12 months on.
First-team opportunities will be difficult to come by too, with Anthony Martial, Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford all above him in the pecking order out wide.
Where Mata's future is concerned, the Spaniard was always at threat of being sold considering his chequered history with Mourinho.
After all, it was the former Chelsea boss who sold Mata to United in 2014.
Mourinho recently insisted "there is space" for the attacking midfielder in his side, but that might not be the case.
He said: "I think since the first day, everything is clear between us. There is space for him.
"He is a talented player but I don't promise places to anyone. I promise respect and I like him.
"So if he wants to stay and I think he wants [to] then yes, there is space for him and yes, I think he can be useful to the club."
