Main goal: Survival
What they need to secure it: Premier League quality, given how conspicuously they’ve been sliding. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been busy but it feels as if he needs much more than three former Molde players in Mats Moller Daehli, Jo Inge Berget and Magnus Wolff Eikrem. Stoke’s Kenwyne Jones has made the switch to Wales but he hardly guarantees goals, with Cardiff also getting Wilfried Zaha and Fabio da Silva on loan from Manchester United.
How badly do they need to buy: 9/10
What have they actually done?
Ins: Magnus Wolff Eikrem (Heerenveen, undisclosed), Mats Moller Daehli (Molde, undisclosed), Jo Inge Berget (Molde, undisclosed), Fabio (Manchester United, undisclosed), Wilfried Zaha (Manchester United, loan)
Outs: Rudy Gestede (Blackburn, undisclosed), Filip Kiss (Ross County, loan), Nicky Maynard (Wigan, loan), John Brayford (Sheffield United, loan), Craig Conway (Blackburn, undisclosed)
