Manchester United: Grading the Red Devils' Summer Transfers

Following a second place finish in the Premier League last season that saw the title ripped from their grip, Manchester United had an aggressive emphasis during this summer's transfer window to grab some of the best players in Europe.

Stars like Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie secured moves to Old Trafford, which made United the favorites to win the Premier League yet again.

Though players like Paul Pogba and Ji-Sung Park may have left, these incoming players provide plenty of potential for the Red Devils.

Altogether, United bought five players this summer. With the completion of the transfers for Angelo Henriquez and Alexander Buttner, Sir Alex Ferguson told The Guardian, "we [Manchester United] definitely won't be buying anyone else, that is for sure."

According to TransferMarkt, United spent slightly more than £52 million on Kagawa, van Persie, Buttner and Nick Powell. Though the price for Henriquez has not been announced, the Daily Mail has estimated that the Chilean striker's price is in the £4 million range.

Assuming that United have officially ended their work in the transfer window, here are my grades of each player United bought this summer.
