7th September 2015, 16:41:04

Ng Han Guan/AP Who will be the next Kun Aguero and who will be the next Lord Bendtner?

The modern game has a shortage of world class strikers. That was the sentiment of Arsene Wenger this year at least, and many other managers look to be in agreement as Europe's elite spend extortionate amounts of money on the few players available.


5 Players Louis Van Gaal Needs To Get Rid Of Today

1st September 2015, 11:51:28

Martin Rickett/PA Wire More misfiring stars could yet follow Adnan Januzaj out of Old Trafford.

Transfer Deadline Day is here and for the next few hours there will be an inundation of flimsy transfer speculation, blue, white and red ticker bars and an obstreperous Jim White. Luckily for Manchester United fans, David de Gea's name may not be mentioned by the aforementioned three as much as once imagined with the news that his proposed move to Real Madrid has collapsed due to 'paperwork issues' (wink, wink).

8 Things To Know About Cameron Humphreys

29th July 2015, 18:28:28

Nick Potts/EMPICS Sport Louis van Gaal is trying to lure the City starlet to Old Trafford.

16-year-old Cameron Humphreys started for Manchester City last Friday as Manuel Pellegrini's side faced Real Madrid. He astonishingly walked out of the MCG cricket ground in Melbourne alongside Yaya Toure, David Silva and Raheem Sterling but perhaps more amazingly was that he was then expected to mark Madrid's fearsome front-line of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.


10 Players Who Could Replace Angel Di Maria

28th July 2015, 13:40:17

Martin Rickett/PA Wire Despite his poor form last season the gifted midfielder will be tricky to replace.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville believes that Louis van Gaal should bring in a replacement of similar quality if they are to sell Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain. Neville, who praised the club's summer transfer business is concerned about the Red Devils losing such an attacking threat and thinks a new face should be brought in imminently.


7 Reasons Why Man Utd Would Be Crazy To Sell Angel Di Maria

27th July 2015, 14:29:40

Nigel French/EMPICS Sport Losing their industrious, Argentine, skill-squirrel buries the Champions League for another season.

BBC Sport reported this morning that Angel Di Maria is "close" to a move to Paris Saint-Germain and that the Argentine midfielder has not joined Manchester United on their pre-season tour. Some supporters will be happy to see the back of their number seven who hasn't yet fumigated his red jersey with the same iconic stench as George Best, Brian Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo but I feel they're wrong.


10 Strikers That Could Be Louis van Gaal's 'Secret Signing'

23rd July 2015, 11:29:41

Matthias Schrader/AP Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger are finalised, now to replace Wayne...

There is something ugly about Manchester United's sparkly, expensive, Bastian Schweinsteiger shined 2015/16 Premier League winning machine. Louis van Gaal simply hasn't finished the job. He's spent around £75 million on a good valet, new alloys, fresh tyres and a paint job but he's left a big Wayne Rooney-shaped fluffy dice dangling from the interior mirror. The England international was given assurance from the Red Devil's boss that he would be leading the line this season but given the amount of investment already put into the club this summer it seems unlikely they would risk starting their return to stardom on a striker who scored 12 league goals last season. Yes, he played a handful of games in the middle of midfield but had his performances up front been of a high level then van Gaal wouldn't have been able to consider moving him. Since 2012 Rooney's natural goalscoring instinct has started to diminish and despite still being a stand-out talent it makes no sense for Manchester United to significantly improve all their other stuttering areas while neglecting the one that matters most. If van Gaal's fluffy dice is not replaced with a garden-fresh streamline air freshener then his well-oiled automobile will struggle to get out of Chelsea's slipstream. I take a look at the potential Rooney replacements who are currently in the showroom...


Man Utd €100m Muller Bid 'Confirmed as Untrue'

21st July 2015, 09:40:55

Martin Rickett/PA Archive/Press Association Images There is apparently no truth to the reports emerging from Germany.

Manchester United are not about to break the British transfer record for the second summer in a row, despite reports in Germany claiming that a €100 million (£70 million) move for Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller is on the cards.

Man Utd Are Set To Announce Next Signing For Another HUGE Fee

5 Things Man Utd Fans Need To Know About Morgan Schneiderlin

14th July 2015, 21:11:02

Chris Ison/PA Archive Meet Bastian's new midfield partner...

Morgan Schneiderlin signing for Manchester United is a strange one. The former Southampton midfielder is clearly a very talented footballer and certainly gives Louis van Gaal a midfield presence that was lacking last season. He has made more tackles than any other player in the Premier League over the past three seasons and is a reliable, steady and disciplined £25 million signing. What he hasn't done is played any Champions League football and that could prove to be a problem as Manchester United aim to regain their place at the top of the football stratosphere.


5 Things Man Utd Fans Need To Know About Bastian Schweinsteiger

14th July 2015, 11:11:13

Matthias Schrader/AP Louis van Gaal has finally got his midfield general.

Bastian has joined Manchester United. It is news that has left both Bayern Munich and Germany reeling. The Bavarian legend has left behind a legacy, but arrives in Manchester determined to become more than just a Bavarian legend. There is a big question mark around his fitness, but the signing of any World Cup winner is huge news, regardless of the club. The 30-year-old has signed a three-year contract from the Bundesliga champions for a reported £14.4m and will undoubtedly give the Red Devils some midfield stability, something they seriously lacked last season. Alongside new signing Morgan Schneiderlin, Louis van Gaal has gone from having limited midfield options to being spoilt for choice and if he does choose to play a 4-2-3-1 formation then he couldn't have purchased a better deep lying pivot for under £50 million. WhatCultureSport look at the top five things Manchester United fans should know about their first, real German player.
