Manchester United have been the kings of the transfer window thus far and are still in the market to make further key additions to what is already a team capable of challenging and winning the title.
Manager, Jose Mourinho is on a quest to regain the league title after 4 years away from Old Trafford and the signs point to the fact that we could have a great season next season. We last won the league in the 2012-13 season in what was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game as manager, but in Jose Mourinho, we have a manager that is primed to win the league.
Our major rivals have had issues in the summer window thus far. Our biggest threats, Chelsea are struggling to complete deals for their major transfer targets, and the psychological blow we dealt in the in the signing of Lukaku may prove to be their undoing.
Jose will start his mind games in full after using the first year to come to grips with the club, and with Manchester City also struggling to find players that fit the Pep Guardiola’s mould, it is a different atmosphere going into next season.
We have squad strength and can boast two quality players in every position. More signings are still expected to beef up the squad with the likes of Ivan Perisic and Nemanja Matic on the way, no team in the division can rival the United squad.
Jose Mourinho has always won the league in his second season at every club he has managed thus far, and going into next season, coupled with the fact that he finished sixth, he is ready to mount an onslaught on the EPL next season. Just like he did after his first season at Chelsea, he has identified his problem areas and has done well to address them early in the transfer window.
The title will not be easy to win, but United have it all: Squad and a manager desperate to return the club to the top of English football after the mediocrity of the past 4 years.
Mourinho knows that if he wins the league and perhaps a cup victory will be a key aspect in re-establishing the club before mounting an assault on the Champions League in the near future, as majority of the squad will boast of trophy-winning experience. No team has won more league titles than us, and it’s time to do it once more. Everyone outside Old Trafford is afraid and rightly so.
