United finished the season sixth after a terrible year in the Premier League which was fraught with problems.
Two wins in 12 saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s bubble burst after an initial brilliant start where he went 11 games unbeaten.
But for the Red Devils, the season ended with a pathetic display at Old Trafford – losing 2-0 to already-relegated Cardiff.
Fans were furious with the United flops – with one video shared on social media showing a fan launching expletives at Paul Pogba.
A season in the Europa League now beckons – the second time the Red Devils have been in the competition in three years.
United are set for a major revamp as Solskjaer targets young talent to freshen up a disinterested squad.
Among the targets are Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice and Kalidou Koulibaly – but the club have already been blocked in their efforts to sign players.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the sixth-place Premier League finish has already had a disruptive effect on player recruitment.
The MEN report that United enquired about an unnamed international winger that played Europa League football this season.
However, the unnamed player has chosen to join a Champions League club instead of the Old Trafford outfit.
One player that appears to be the favourite to move to Manchester this summer is Swansea winger Daniel James.
And fellow Welshman John Hartson believes it would be a good transfer for everyone involved.
“In recent years, Swansea have sold a complete team. Influential players like Lukasz Fabianski, Federico Fernandez, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wilfried Bony have all gone,” he told the Daily Mirror.
“If they are offered in excess of £20m for Daniel, then it’s difficult to turn down. It would also be hard to deny the boy the opportunity of playing for a Manchester United.
“He was very close to going to Leeds on the final day of the January transfer window for £10m. But I believe Swansea pulled the plug on the deal at the last minute because they thought, at that price, it was a steal.
“The transfer was almost over the line. I believe his parents were at Elland Road with the lad, but Swansea then told Leeds the deal was off.
“It wasn’t very nice for Daniel because he had probably pinned his hopes on joining Leeds, who then looked like they were on their way to the Premier League.
“The way things have developed could be better for both Swansea and the player.
“From the club’s point of view, the transfer fee will at least be doubled – while Daniel could join one of the Premier League’s top clubs.
“Ryan Giggs, the Wales manager, obviously believes in him. That was fantastic for his confidence.”
