This was their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and it is important that they have a positive summer to build on the current foundations. They have been active in the transfer window in recent years, with big name signings such as Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku arriving at Old Trafford.

Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

As part of my weekly Manchester United transfer series, I decided to look at the career of Luke Shaw at Manchester United, the present and whether or not there is a future for the young Englishman at Old Trafford beyond the Summer of 2018. It is easy to forget some of the more simpler issues - amidst the whole argument surrounding United's Premier League season with it dividing opinion among the fans, progress versus the lack of entertainment, possibility of …

Veteran Michael Carrick is still Crucial to Manchester United

He has still got it, Michael Carrick. Though not at the grandest of stages to announce a return to playing capacity - at Huish Park against Fourth Division side Yeovil Town, in front of a capacity crowd - Michael Carrick showed Jose Mourinho and the Manchester United fans, why he is still vital to the Red Devils who have now added another potent weapon to their arsenal in Alexis Sanchez. It is a shame that he is 36 years old …

As the dust settled and final whistle blown, United emerged victorious in another Premier League game, a vital 2-0 win at Old Trafford against the 2015/16 Champions Leicester City. On the whole, United deservedly took home all three points as Mourinho's side improved their points tally to nine, out of nine available - and will go into the international break with confidence as high as it can be.

Carrick, Title Charge and the Celebration of an Excellent Career

A year on after Wayne Rooney's testimonial against his boyhood club Everton, 36-year old Michael Carrick will be honoured with a similar celebratory fixture, on the 4th of June at Old Trafford.

It's been more than 48 hours since Manchester United altered the dynamics of the title race by comprehensively beating runaway leaders Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford on a day when simply everything went to plan. Jose Mourinho went with a side that was as unconventional as it has been in his brief time at Old Trafford so far - with the usual suspects Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michael Carrick and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on the bench and Ashley Young taking the armband off Marouane Fellaini …
