Manchester United fans can certainly dream, you've got to give them that.

With the January transfer window fast approaching and United's fortunes still struggling to return to their glory days, the fans have taken to the internet to give Jose Mourinho some ideas on who they'd like to see arrive at the club in the new year.

Having taken part in a survey in the Manchester Evening News the fans revealed which players they'd like to see moved on in 2017, and who they'd like to come on board.

The names on the chopping block include Marouane Fellaini , Marcos Rojo, Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and England international defender Phil Jones.

And while the names they hope to see coming in don't add up in terms of numbers, they more than make up for the discrepancy with their quality.

The players on their transfer wish list are Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, highly-rated Monaco full-back Fabinho and Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin.

And the fans managed to fit the potential new boys into the side for United's meeting with Hull on February 1, which will be the first game after the closure of the January transfer window.

The new line up certainly makes for a strong looking side, with current stars David De Gea , Eric Bailly , Luke Shaw , Paul Pogba , Michael Carrick , Henrikh Mkhitaryan , Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all included.

However, there's no place in the side for Ander Herrera, Daley Blind, Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney.

The lowdown

While everyone is well aware of what Aubameyang can offer a team, the real interesting selection is Monaco's Fabinho.

The 23-year-old, who can feature at either right-back or as a defensive midfielder and has been making roads into the Brazilian national side over the past two years.

Having began his career with Portuguese outfit Rio Ave, he was snapped up by Real Madrid in 2012, but spent the majority of his time there in their B team.

And after making a single appearance for the senior side, he was snapped up by Monaco on loan before joining them permanently a year later, where he is now a regular starter.

Godin has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford before, with a £30million move mooted. However, with the Uruguayan turning 31 soon, there is a sense that the fee could be too much of a stretch.
