The dust has settled and Manchester United supporters finally know how the squad will shape up ahead of a tough campaign.
Louis van Gaal also removed a lot of deadwood in the form of players such as Tom Cleverley and Nani. We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on whether United had a successful transfer window:
@PeoplesPerson_ no. Smaller squad yet playing more games. Madness. Midfield improved, weaker elsewhere.

@PeoplesPerson_ A good window, it had potential to be a great one but with the players available (& De Gea staying), an ultimate success.

@PeoplesPerson_ Was hoping for a superstar CB and FWD. Time will tell, but we do have a bit more depth with what we have.

@PeoplesPerson_ I think the incoming and outgoing, especially the strikers, was a lil imbalanced but we didn't do too bad at all.

@PeoplesPerson_ I'm much more confident than after the last two summer windows. There's some very interesting signings.

@PeoplesPerson_ Don't have a problem with van Gaal shifting the dead wood. There isn't necessarily strength in numbers. Good window.

@PeoplesPerson_ YES. Martial is INCREDIBLE TALENT. Schmidfield,Darmian, Memphis amazing.Lot of dead wood gone. New CB wud've made it perfect

@PeoplesPerson_ Decent but we're a Smalling injury away from a mini crisis at CB and weakest iv seen as a Utd supporter for options up top

Van Gaal has been backed in the transfer market and he must now deliver the goods.
The current squad is full of his players and there can be no excuses when it comes to the personnel at his disposal. Perhaps the biggest concern is that there isn’t too much strength in depth but the hope is that youngsters such as Andreas Pereira can make the step up.
