Manchester United have strengthened their squad this season to pose a serious title challenge. After spending more than £130 million to buy Victor Lindelöf, Lukaku and Matic this summer, the Red Devils are looking to sign two midfielders from Barcelona.

25-year-old Sergi Roberto, who has consistently been touted to join United is eyeing up a move away from the Nou Camp. There have been reports that United are ready to activate Roberto’s £36.5million release clause to make the Spanish international their fourth signing this summer. 

Another player linked with Man United is 30-year-old Arda Turan. It has been reported that Jose Mourinho has held several meetings with the Turkish international ahead of a potential £24m move to Old Trafford.

After failing to land Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan, the gaffer has turned his attention to Arda Turan, whom he holds in high esteem for his tactical discipline, astuteness on the ball and tenacity.

Manchester United got their 2017-18 Premier League season off to a flying start by destroying West Ham 4-0. Lukaku, Martial and Pogba were on target for the Red Devils as they demolished Hammers, who put up little resistance in their opening game. 

United controlled the game from start to finish and were absolutely brilliant. There was so much energy, pace, optimism and desire to attack in this team, which I haven't seen in a long time.

While United did enjoy majority of possession, the one thing that irked me was their conversion of chances. United had 22 attempts on goal but only 6 were on target. 

Not able to convert the chances has been a problem United struggled last season too. But with the players that Jose Mourinho has got this summer, I'm optimistic United will improve on that statistic and mount a serious challenge for the title.

Manchester United outplayed a young Ajax team to win the Europa League for the first time. Goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan helped United beat the Dutch side 2-0 in the final at Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

By winning the UEFA Europa League 2017, United join Bayern Munich, Ajax, Chelsea and Juventus as the only side to win every European competition.

More importantly, Manchester United now earn their place directly to the group stage in next season’s Champions League with a commanding performance.

Glory Glory Man United.

Manchester United won the English League Cup 2017 by downing Southampton in a thrilling 3-2 victory at Wembley. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, once again displayed his class by scoring twice in the final.

Jose Mourinho delivered the first cup for United in his first season as manager. With his fourth League Cup triumph, he now joins Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough as the most successful manager in the competition.

United were cruising with a 2-0 lead before Southampton striker Manolo Gabbiadini's brace either side of halftime breathed life into the showpiece match.

It looked like the match will head into extra-time, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic thumped a header in 87th minute to win the match for Manchester United.

Mourinho praised the big Swede by saying, ""He won the game for us. He was outstanding. He made the difference and he gave us the cup."

Congratulations to Man United. As a Red Devil fan, I hope 2017 gives us more chances to win trophies.

Glory Glory Man United!

Manchester United have appointed a full-time counter-terrorism manager, believed to be the first in the United Kingdom.

A former inspector from Greater Manchester Police's specialist search unit has been appointed full-time. The security at Old Trafford is under increased scrutiny since last few months, especially after a fake bomb was found in a toilet in May and two supporters were found to be hiding to watch Red Devils play against Arsenal.

Several fans have complained about the time it takes for searches at turnstiles and thus more security supervisors have been appointed.

It surely is a great move by Manchester United and emphasizes its commitment to ensure safety of its players and the fans during matchdays.
