Seven years ago, Manchester United were struggling for a foothold in the Premier League and were on their way out of the Champions League group stage, where they ended up finishing bottom of their bracket.
To address the club’s problems, then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson defied his "no value in the January transfer market" mantra by acquiring Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic, both of whom would go on to be integral parts of five league titles and one European Cup success.
With the Red Devils currently seventh in the table after 12 games, new boss David Moyes would no doubt like to make several similarly impactful signings just over a month from now.
Over the next few slides, we’ll have a look at the players he is thought to be considering.
This rundown will be updated throughout the week, so check back to keep up to speed with what United may be planning for January.
