During the 2017-18 season, Manchester United have finished second in the Premier League table with 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

Furthermore, the 20-time Premier League winners were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the last 16 after going down 2-1 to Sevilla at Old Trafford.

Therefore, United as the most valuable football club in the world, will look to make some huge summer signings in order to get back their respect.

Today, we take a look at four signings that manager Mourinho could make in this summer.

4. Toby Alderweireld – Centre-Back

Toby Alderweireld is possibly one of the most consistent centre-backs in Europe entirely and particularly in the Premier League.

The Belgium international defender is renowned for his physical style of play, tactical tackles and his passing accuracy.

Manchester United have been struggling in the position, with Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof have been in poor form.

Toby Alderweireld, 29, is the right option to resolve the problem for long-term.

3. Gareth Bale – Winger

Bale is one of the best wingers in Europe but he is the most underrated player at Real Madrid.

The Wales international has been unplayable since he joined the Los Blancos in 2013 from Tottenham Hotspur.

The Southampton product moved to the Santiago Bernabeu on a world record transfer fee of £85.3 million (€100 million).

With his physical shape, pace and dribbling skills, the 28-year-old is capable to play anywhere in the world.

Bale has been a primary target for United boss Jose Mourinho last summer but the Portuguese was not able to sign the Madrid attacker.
