Following the capture of full back Guillermo Varela, David Moyes is looking to add more fresh faces to the Manchester United squad he has inherited.
These five players have all been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks, and may yet line up for the Red Devils in August.
Only Cristiano Ronaldo scored more often in last season's Champions League than Lewandowski, whose ten goal tally included four in one game against Real Madrid. He had been tipped to join Bayern Munich until Dortmund's chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke ruled out selling another star player to their Bundesliga rivals, following Mario Gotze's departure. Watzke's words appear to have boosted United's hopes of landing the man who bagged 36 goals in 48 games last term, six more than Robin van Persie. Could they yet forge one of Europe's most lethal partnerships?
With Rio Ferdinand very much in the twilight of his career, Man United are thought to be keen on adding Ezequiel Garay to their central defensive options. The Argentine is available for just under £17m from Benfica, where he experienced mixed fortunes against United in the 2011/12 Champions League group stages. Garay kept Wayne Rooney at bay in Lisbon, but was later exposed aerially during a 2-2 draw in Manchester, a familiar weakness to his game likely to be exposed more often should he move to England.
Cavani is likely to move this summer despite new Napoli boss Rafa Benitez wanting to keep Serie A's top marksman on board. Chelsea and Man City have expressed an interest, while United are also thought to be mulling over an offer which may need to top £50m. Uruguay's Confederations Cup campaign ends this weekend, meaning we should have a clearer picture next week on whether it's United, Chelsea, Man City or Real Madrid - now under the stewardship of Carlo Ancelotti - who are most likely to land the South American.
Less than a week after David de Gea talked up Thiago Alcantara's potential Man United move, Javier Hernandez has recommended teenager Jonathan Espericueta to David Moyes. The young winger wears the No.7 shirt for Mexico's Under-20 side and has impressed at this month's FIFA Under-20 World Cup, scoring a Beckham-esque free kick against Greece (see above).
The 20 year-old Real Madrid striker is likened to Fernando Morientes in style, but has found first team opportunities few and far between since penning professional terms in 2011. He had pledged to stay and fight for his place in at the Bernabeu, though it's now unclear whether he figures in new boss Carlo Ancelotti's plans. Morata starred in Spain's Under-21 European Championship winning side earlier this month, finishing the tournament as top goalscorer after bagging four goals in five games (see below).
