Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba: 6 players Manchester United should sign, 6 who should leave this transfer window

Potential recruits on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's transfer list

Close, but not close enough.

If ever a line summed up a season, the one above neatly fits Manchester United's season.

While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side finished the Premier League season like a rampaging bull to take third place – and with it Champions League football – their semi-final exits in the League Cup, FA Cup, and Europa League, left no one in any doubt that a turnover in playing staff is needed to turn United into genuine contenders again.

While the prolific troika of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood offer more than green shoots of optimism, the continuing debate over Paul Pogba and the alarming dip in form of David de Gea has certainly given the United hierarchy plenty to mull over as they plot their next plunge into the transfer market.

While Jadon Sancho appears the primary target, could United launch an audacious bid to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford? And have the likes of Phil Jones and Juan Mata played their last games for the Red Devils?
