HOT TAKE: Do Manchester United need another big signing?
Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Willian and many other world-class players have been linked with a summer move to Manchester United. After already having signed Alexis Sánchez in January, this would be a clear statement of intent by the Red Devils. Is this the right direction to go in for United though? By the time next season starts, Bale and Sánchez will be 29 years old, Willian will be 30 and Ronaldo will be 33. United's current crop of promising attacking players include Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku. Lingard is the oldest at 25 years old. If all of those players started week in week out, they would grow as a unit and all reach their ceiling, potentially leading to United dominance over the upcoming years. One of José Mourinho's predecessors, Sir Alex Ferguson, would most likely have capitalised on this young core in an attempt to start a dynasty. Pep Guardiola has also seen the importance of young superstars at Manchester City, allowing club legends to leave in order to let a young team flourish. With Martial, Rashford and Pogba all rumoured to want away from Manchester, the "win now" mentality of United has to be questioned.
