Louis van Gaal made a number of signings this summer, but many would argue not in the positions that were most needed by the club.

United will undoubtedly face competition from the German’s long term admirers Arsenal and Chelsea, but with the Red Devils already showing they are not afraid to pay monstrous wages to attract their top targets, could they have the advantage over their London rivals?
