Nemanja Vidic has left United and Rio Ferdinand looks destined for Queens Park Rangers. This means center back may be United's most vulnerable position. Mats Hummels is an excellent defender who towers at 6-foot-4, and at the age of 25 he already has a lot Champions League experience.

With rumors that Marouane Fellaini may be on his way out of Old Trafford, the Red Devils are in a position with only Michael Carrick as a reliable central midfielder. Vidal scored 11 goals for Serie A champions Juventus from his deep-lying midfield role and is the perfect player to blend United's defense and attack.
