Sir Alex Ferguson couldn’t have dreamed of being in such a luxurious position with only a month and a half left of the season.
Manchester United currently possess a 15-point advantage over their closest rivals, who just so happen to be the champions, Manchester City, and with only a handful of tricky games left to encounter they look certain to claim the 20th league title in their history.
They have done it in style, too, currently on course to set a new record points total, eclipsing Chelsea’s tally of 95 which was amassed in the 2004-2005 campaign.
But for Ferguson, this is simply par for the course. The Scot will already be planning United’s siege for glory next year, and having controversially been eliminated from Europe against Real Madrid earlier this month, will be looking to avenge this injustice by claiming his third Champions League medal next May.
Here are five summer objectives for Manchester United that they must complete in order to remain on top in the Premier League and continue to progress in Europe.
