Fans’ view: What more do Manchester United have to do to make this a successful transfer window?

After a frustrating few weeks, Manchester United look to have stepped up their transfer activity in recent days and they are now said to be closing in on a move for Torino right-back Matteo Darmian.

Louis van Gaal has already brought in Memphis Depay but the experienced manager will be fully aware that he needs more new faces if his side are to be a success next term.

The current United squad is imbalanced and the rumoured departure of Robin van Persie will only emphasise this further.

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on what more United need to do to make this a successful transfer window:

Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and James Wilson will be left as United’s only recognised strikers if van Persie leaves so there is no doubt that they will need someone else to share the workload next term.

Van Gaal will also be keen to beef up his midfield as he often had to ask Rooney to play there last season. Bastian Schweinsteiger has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, as has Morgan Schneiderlin.

Finally, United need a dominant centre-half. Sergio Ramos would be a superb addition but van Gaal may turn to Nicolas Otamendi as an alternative.
