Updates will be posted with every player coming in or leaving the club

2016/17 was another turbulent season at Old Trafford. Although Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United qualified for the UEFA Champions League after winning the Europa League, their Barclays Premier League form left a lot to be desired. Manchester United finished 6th in the standings – a whopping 24 points behind league winners Chelsea. The team accumulated 15 draws and score only 54 goals (23 less than 5th place Arsenal and 31 less than Chelsea). To make matters worse, Manchester United lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic to season ending injury having scored 28 Goals from 44 appearances in all competitions. Mourinho will definitely look to bring in some goal scoring options.

Similar to last year, it will be interesting to see who leaves during the transfer window. Although Manchester United boasted the 2nd best defensive record in the Premier League, Mourinho is looking to further bolster his defensive line. As a result, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones find themselves on the list of possible exits from Old Trafford this summer.

The only guarantee this summer is that Manchester United will be linked with plenty of players.
