Manchester United v Chelsea - Premier League
Jose Mourinho needs support from Ed Woodward to become ruthless again

Manchester has made a lot of big money signings ever since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. Though they have gotten it right on some occasions, they have also made some bad signings in the last few years.

Players like Angel di Maria, Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay, and Bastian Schweinsteiger have arrived at Old Trafford with a lot of expectations but left the club as disappointments, within a year or two after their arrival.

Jose Mourinho's arrival brought in some quality names to the Old Trafford. However, Manchester United are still short of some quality players to compete with the likes of top European clubs like Barcelona, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

On that note, let's take a look at the players who can make Manchester United champions again.

#5 Danny Rose (Left back)

Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace - Premier League
One of the most talented left backs in England

Arguably one of the best left-backs in England, Rose is a key part of Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur side. He has played 152 times for the North London club and has made the PFA Team of the Year twice in the last three years.

He has always had the pace and dribbling ability of a left-back, but, what makes him special is his ability to make attacking runs in the wide areas and positional awareness while defending.

United currently have Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and to an extent Daley Blind as left-backs but Mourinho feels he needs a world class player in that position to challenge for titles. With a high work rate and a lot of energy, Rose fits the bill perfectly.

Daniel Levy values him at £50m, but, given the nature of price inflation in the transfer market, £50m could still be a bargain for the England international.
