A lot will change at Manchester United from next season onwards. The performances the team has shown over the last few months have been disappointing and the results even more so. They were eliminated early from the Carabao Cup by Newcastle and failed to advance to the knock-out stages of the Champions League, while in the Premier League they are too far behind Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.

With this scenario, the FA Cup is their only chance to win a title this season. But that does not mean it is the main objective. It is also very important to keep getting victories in the English league to climb up the stadings and reach the qualification zone for the next Champions League. Right now the Red Devils are five points behind Aston Villa, who occupy the fourth place in the tournament, and three points behind Tottenham.

Whether or not they secure their place in Europe's top club competition next season, Manchester United will need to raise the level of the squad. To do so, some players who have not lived up to expectations will have to leave, while others will arrive in sectors of the pitch where coach Erik Ten Hag deems it necessary.

The midfield will surely be one of the places targeted for reinforcement. The future of Casemiro and Scott McTominay is in doubt, which added to Mason Mount's repeated injuries, makes a top level player necessary there. And the chosen one seems to be a midfielder who was a World Cup winner with Lionel Messi's Argentina National Team in Qatar 2022: Exequiel Palacios.

He shines in Germany

The 25-year-old midfielder is a key player for Xabi Alonso at Bayer Leverkusen, the surprise Bundesliga leaders. He arrived there in 2020 and has since played 108 games, with 13 goals and 7 assists. His excellent performances caught the attention of several top clubs in Europe and, according to Bild, Manchester United are one of them. But negotiations will not be easy, as the German side want more than £50 million for him.
