Manchester United had a quiet transfer window going into deadline day. Sir Alex Ferguson seems content with his squad, and he should be after clinching their 19th Premier League title last year and being a finalist in the Champions League. United did not need a lot of help through the transfer window.
However, they did get younger and deeper through the transfer window. Their main needs were for depth on the back line and a midfielder who can control the game. They also needed to replace Edwin van der Sar at goalkeeper, as van der Sar's retirement left a hole at that position.
United are deep on forwards with Chicharito and Wayne Rooney, as well as Dimitar Berbatov on the bench. The midfield struggled at times last season and with the retirement of Paul Scholes, they lost some depth.
Sir Alex Ferguson needed to address these issues, so here are the grades for Manchester United's activity in the transfer window.
