Dozens of players have been linked to Manchester United over the last months.
The media have been responsible for naming them and for setting prices and arrival dates of footballers from all over Europe, but so far nothing has been confirmed.
For Alex Ferguson, some clubs tend to get desperate, which ends in signing any player.
However, those linked to United are either young talents who have proven their abilities with their local clubs and national teams or veterans who have already settled and can lead their teammates.
Perhaps if some of these signings happen, they will help the Red Devils to find a bit more stability.
Here is a list of names that have attracted attention and the status of each movement.
