Currently Europa League became the only way MU to appear in the Champions League. Because the road from the finish in the top four of the Premier League was closed. Remaining one game, MU has been confirmed to finish in sixth place.
Against Ajax, MU remain a superior team. That is, most likely the public will again see MU in action in the Champions League after missing this season. However, coach Jose Mourinho should still make improvements before the new season begins.
2017 summer transfer market was an opportunity for MU to add quality to the squad. At least, there must be one new player in every position that is present in the summer. Here is the list of players:
1. Harry Kane
Kane is a player who has consistently shown his quality over the past three seasons. Together with Tottenham Hotspur, he appeared as one of the strikers tersubur in the Premier League. Last season, he won the Premier League's Golden Boot award after becoming the top scorer with 25 goals from 38 matches.

Kane's performance makes Tottenham could compete with Chelsea for the English Premier League title this season. However, their efforts failed after Chelsea locked the title.
Even so, he still helps Tottenham incised special notes. This is the best position Tottenham has ever had in the Premier League since last runner-up in 1962/1963.
2. James Rodriguez
James is a player who is widely reportedly docked to Manchester United in recent months. The lack of a chance to play at Real Madrid makes James already thinking about finding a new club after this season ends.
Madrid initially did not want to announce James's departure until after the Champions League final June 3, 2017. But James wants his future to be immediately clear and prepare for a new career in England.

Together with Madrid, James's appearance is quite consistent. In three seasons, he appeared in 110 matches, scored 36 goals, and created 41 assists.
3. Virgil van Dijk
Southampton success survive in the middle of the Premier League standings can not be separated from the contribution of Van Dijk. Last season, he also helped The Saints finish sixth in the Premier League standings.

Given the habits of Southampton that often sells its flagship player, Manchester United's chances to get Van Dijk is big. The only problem is to compete for a big offer to Southampton.
