The Red Devils were knocked out of the Uefa Champions League at the quarter-final stage by the holders Bayern Munich earlier in the week to end any hope that new head coach David Moyes may have had of winning a trophy in his first season in charge at the Theatre of Dreams.
And now it is expected that the likes of Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Anderson will all leave the club this summer, while there are also doubts about the future in the north west next season of Alex Buttner, Nani, Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa and Tom Cleverley.
“He (Moyes) will definitely look back on this season and realise it was a disappointment, but I fully expect there to be some signings. It is time to show the manager that you deserve to be at this club,” said midfielder Darren Fletcher after United’s 3-1 second-leg loss in Bavaria.
“We need to rise to that standard, said Fletcher. ‘I don’t think we are as far behind as some people think. Whoever the manager signs, they will hopefully help us bridge that gap. If we end up in the Europa League, we can try and win it.”
