Man United heading for more misery in the transfer market this summer

Manchester United's 2018-19 campaign was one of their worst seasons in recent memory: They sacked a manager, failed to challenge for a single major honour and finished sixth, five points adrift of the top four and Champions League qualification.

Ending the season 32 points behind champions Manchester City and 32 points ahead of relegated Cardiff City in 18th place, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players quite literally found themselves drifting along in No Man's Land, having posted the club's worst-ever defensive record in a Premier League season by conceding 54 goals in 38 games. To put the seal on a dismal campaign for a club with more domestic titles than any other English team, neighbours City achieved an unprecedented domestic Treble, while traditional rivals Liverpool won the Champions League to claim their sixth European Cup -- twice as many as United's all-time haul of three.
