But it seems Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to change some of the dynamics within the squad and build side that has the strength to withstand pressure from almost any opposition.
While this team might seem vulnerable at times, with a season or two they could be reaching the heights of Barcelona, who are without a doubt the best team in the world.

Key to Sir Alex's plans is maintaining the high performance while changing guard, and not allowing any opportunity to close the gap to rival clubs.
This slideshow previews three partnerships that will develop into a world-class, winning team that eventually will be able to challenge Barcelona and Real Madrid.
