Incoming Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has already identified eight players he will work closely with when he starts work with the Premier League, the UK Telegraph reports.
Some big names and first-team regulars at Old Trafford have failed to deliver consistently, leading to some fans calling for them to be dropped or sold.
Ten Hag, however, will be more patient and is looking to revive some flatlining careers.
United captain Harry Maguire has faced plenty of criticism this term for the decline in his form, but Ten Hag wants to find out why Maguire’s form for his country is so much better than when with his club.
Another central defender could be brought in to bring the best out of Maguire and deploy him in the middle of a back three.
Marcus Rashford is also under Ten Hag’s microscope after the most disappointing individual season of his career.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s performances and chances of a future at the club will be mulled over by Ten Hag. The former Crystal Palace right-back appears to have lost his place as first-choice to Diogo Dalot.
Plenty of the current first-team will not be around by the time Ten Hag arrives, with the likes of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani all expected to depart following the expiration of their respective contracts.
