Most United fans agree Sir Alex Ferguson needs reinforcements in the January window with his team behind Manchester City in the Premier League and struggling to assert themselves in the Champions League.
Here are the latest names linked to United as possible winter buys, complete with video evidence to demonstrate what they're capable of.
Christian Fuchs is an Austrian international defender who plays for Schalke in the Bundesliga. Strong and quick, with a classy left foot, he could potentially be used at left-back or centrally.
Sami Khedira is a German international midfielder currently employed by Real Madrid in La Liga.
The 24-year-old is reportedly being viewed as a possible target for United, with the suggestion that Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to strengthen his midfield options. Jose Mourinho might need convincing, however, when you consider he's started Khedira regularly this season.
The 20-year-old is relatively inexperienced, but he's also said to be generating interest from Barcelona and Villarreal. A price tag of £4.5 million has been loosely applied to the Spaniard.

Ghanaian striker Richmond Boakye has been linked with Manchester United for a few months now.
Is it true that many clubs are already finding out about Boakye? A big Italian company (understood to be Juventus) and a great English one, Manchester United, have already asked me because he is very strong.
Boayke is currently on loan with Serie B club Sassuolo, where he's been scoring freely and attracting the eye of the best clubs in Europe.
Swedish international midfielder Rasmus Elm got a mention in last week's transfer wrap, but there's an update on the story from the man himself.
'You have to take rumours for what they are, but it is obviously flattering if there is some truth in it,' Elm is quoted at Mirror.co.uk.
I don't close the door to any league. But the most important thing is to develop here and do as well as I can in Holland.
