2) Youri Tielemans

Youri Tielemans, like Neves, was a key player for Anderlecht before moving to the French League with AS Monaco. With the principality club struggling for form and stability last season, a loan move to Leicester City in the winter window saw him hit all the right notes.

The Belgian was a key cog in the Foxes' midfield as the club picked up crucial wins and ended the season on a high.

Tielemans is tipped to be a future star for Belgium, and like Neves possesses an excellent passing range. He can play further upfield if needed and this versatility could be key. 

3) Wilfred Ndidi 

Wilfred Ndidi enhanced his reputation as a tough tackling midfielder this season. The Nigerian ended the season with the tag of being the most successful tackler in the league - his 143 tackles earning him top spot.

The Man United midfield would dearly love the addition of Ndidi, as the departing Ander Herrera was a master of recovering the ball from the opposition.

The big clubs have now started taking notice of what Ndidi offers, and United would do well to beat them to the punch. After all, the United faithful do love a tough tackling midfielder in their ranks.

It's easier said than done, but Manchester United have the finances required to swiftly complete these deals before other interested parties make a move. A successful move for even two of these players would definitely improve Solskjaer's options in midfield come next season.
