Realistic summer transfer fixes for Manchester United's malaise

Romelu Lukaku will speak with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

James is the subject of interest of several Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, but United are expected to win the race for the Welsh international's signature.

Solskjaer was unsure about Herrera's future although he could feature on Sunday.

With the likes of Juan Mata and Ander Herrera just a few players set for the Manchester United exit door, there is a sense that the Red Devils will be a much different team next season.

United have finished outside the top four in four of the six seasons since Ferguson retired. "So next season we've got to close that gap".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted Manchester United have "hit a brick wall" in recent weeks as a dispiriting campaign ended on a fittingly low note following defeat to relegated Cardiff.

The 17-year-old made his United bow in the closing minutes of their stunning Champions League win at Paris Saint-Germain in March, subsequently featuring twice more from the bench in the league.

United ended a hard Premier League campaign with a shock 2-0 defeat at home to already-relegated Cardiff, leaving them sixth in the Premier League and 32 points behind neighbours and champions Manchester City.

Asked about a move for James on Friday morning, Solskjaer said: "I can't comment on every single individual". How far are we behind these other teams?

Born and raised in Ohio, Day initially dreamed of being a dancer, but an injury suffered in a auto accident made that impossible. Her films, which included Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much and That Touch of Mink , made her known around the world.

"We're in a great position to be able to do that".

"The feeling in the end is very bitter", the out-of-contract Spanish midfielder said in his weekly blog on his website.

United are sixth in the standings with 66 points. "The English full-back picked up the Players" Player of the Year trophy before scooping the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award, as voted for by fans.

Solskjaer's squad needs a radical overhaul after years of poor spending and drift.

"This summer will be also about players that can last here for many years".

"You'd be surprised how many agents have been touting their players".

"That is my opinion as a fan and as someone who knows the club at the moment. It's going to be important we come together from the first day, pre season is going to be important". When you've got that raw pace, you're a threat at any level so as a winger, obviously for me playing as a winger, when I was younger, you then have to develop the other parts of your game which I feel he is doing.

They could yet finish the season 32 points off the top of the table and Solskjaer is well aware of the job facing him.
