Main goal: Champions’ League qualification
What they need to secure it: A new midfield and replacement for Patrice Evra. Juan Mata will add creativity and David Moyes is also targeting Juventus’s Arturo Vidal and Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Patrick Herrmann, with a longer-term eye on Ilkay Gündogan of Borussia Dortmund. Enquiries have been made for Luke Shaw of Southampton; Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis is another option. So is Toni Kroos of Bayern Munich.
How badly do they need to buy: 10/10
