With only a few weeks until the January transfer window opens for business, Manchester United need to get busy as they look to get on the front foot in the new year.

Diogo Dalot doesn’t really have a future with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, but at present he’s hardly pulling up any trees on loan at AC Milan.
