Humiliated out of the league cup at the very first hurdle, eliminated by arch rivals Arsenal in the quarter finals of FA Cup, for worst, Liverpool may topple Man United to finish fourth in the league.
Without champions league qualification, Louis van Gaal’s first season in charge of Man United will be considered a massive failure.
It does seem like a failure at the moment because nothing has really improved for them since Moyes departed even after spending heavy sums to bring in quality players.
United still need more reinforcements in key departments and defense is a major concern.
Manchester United have been in search of a quality right full back with Rafael not up to the mark as per Van Gaal’s requirements and Valencia is just a make shift RWB.
The Red Devils targeted Porto’s Brazilian star Danilo but as per reports, they have lost out on him.
According to ESPN, Real Madrid have agreed €30 million deal with Porto to sign Danilo on a six year contract that will triple his wages.
As per the provided link, Barcelona’s transfer adviser has been told that the deal is already done as he claimed:
“They have told me that the deal is already done, but I do not know for sure,”
“[Danilo] must decide that himself.”
Manchester United will have to look elsewhere to fill the void at right full back position. They also need top players for central defense, midfield and attack as well
