Whilst the Old Trafford side could indeed do with a real re-shuffle in terms of their playing staff it is something of a surprise to see such a sum being made available for the process and whomever takes over as permanent successor to David Moyes is clearly going to be free to splash the cash.

Respected pundit Guillem Balague claims that Man United’s number one priority comes in the shape of PSG forward Edinson Cavani, with a £53m bid for the Uruguayan in the offing.

One imagines that for the sake of UEFA’s FFP (Financial Fair Play) guidelines the Premier League side will also look to trim their squad ahead of such additions and in terms of bring in further firepower Man United may well look to offload Javier Hernandez, who has become something of a bit-part player.

The likes of Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa and Nani could be sold for decent sums, having failed to deliver the good on a consistent basis.

Clearly one obstacle to garnering the services of top talents is the fact that Man United will not be able to offer Champions League football next term.
