Manchester United are keen on bridging the gap with their more balanced city rivals this summer. Coach Jose Mourinho has been constantly criticized for his defensive tactics and safe way of play that does not even get the results a lot of time.

A lot more United fans want the club to play attacking football, as it was in the past but the Portuguese tactician prefers control in a game that cavalier football. The team play convincingly early on in the season, the prospects were good. However towards the season, the number of goalscorers available to the team had really dwindled. RomeluLukaku’s conversation rate started dwindling while Zlatan Ibrahimovic was obviously on his way out. The style of play and locker room issues started affecting the team balance as well.
