Manchester United had an absolute disastrous campaign under David Moyes. With the new season coming to a start, the Red Devils will be looking to strengthen their squad under the guidance of the newly appointed Louis van Gaal. The Manchester club still have a strong strike force, but they will need to strengthen all other areas of their squad.

AS Roma were an absolute revelation last season in the Italian Serie A, making Juventus FC work until the very end for the title. Benatia was part of the Roma defense that propelled the team to a second place finish. The French-Moroccan defender is strong defensively and can score goals. Benatia could be a world-beater under van Gaal.

Blind is by no means a finished product, but the Dutchman showed his quality under van Gaal during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The Ajax player will add versatility to the Manchester United lineup, with his ability to play both as a defensive midfielder and a left back. Blind would be a fantastic addition to both the defense and midfield.

With Paris Saint-Germain seemingly giving up on Di Maria, Manchester United are once again poised for the signature of the Argentine winger. Di Maria is a world-class winger and midfielder, and the Real Madrid man will add creativity and quality that Man U had been missing under David Moyes.

Having missed out on signing Thomas Vermaelen to FC Barcelona, Manchester United will need to turn to Hummels. BVB Dortmund have stated on numerous occasion that Hummels is not for sale. With Jurgen Klopp going as far as naming him Dortmund's captain, the Red Devils will have to work hard for the defensive beast.

The Juventus man has been on the radar of the Red Devils for the majority of the summer. One of the major concerns that Louis van Gaal has for the Chilean midfielder is his fitness after a major knee injury. If Arturo Vidal is willing to go to Old Trafford and there is no problem with his fitness, the Juventus midfielder would be an absolute monster in the Manchester United midfield.
