Why Manchester United might miss out on Champions League spot again?

Why Manchester United might miss out on Champions League spot again?

The struggle at Old Trafford saw them relegate to the UEFA Europa League last season after a poor run of form. The three times UEFA Champions League winner sacked club legend, Ole Soskjaer in a bid to remediate the season but fortunately escaped playing UEFA Europa Conference League.

Manchester United were expected to have a busy summer, acquiring players to shapen the squad but reds have been underwhelming so far. We take a look at few reasons Manchester United might fail to perform again?

Despite signing Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez, Ten Hag would be far from satisfied right now. United finished sixth and lost the quality of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Edison Cavani, Jesse Lingard and Dean Henderson, You'd expect that atleast six statement signings are made this summer.

Rumors have had it that Cristiano Ronaldo would likely move to a Champions League playing club before the end of the window and it's quite interesting to how these situations would be handled at Manchester United.

A deep look at the depth of the squad at Old Trafford reveals that United's midfield is far from being okay at the moment. The have just Fred and McTominay deep in the midfield, without direct replacements should they get injured.

The attacking midfield is quite fine with a like for like replacement of Pogba with Eriksen. Subject to how Ten Hag deploys his team, it would be interesting to see how Manchester United survives with this midfield.

Dean Henderson moved to Nottingham Forest, Lee Grant retired. Who backs up for David De Gea is still a puzzle unsolved. United have brought in Tyrell Malacia with Wan Bissaka and Alex Telles failing to hit the ground running.

Luke Shaw remains isolated at Left back and it would be interesting to see how quickly Malacia settles to the physicality of the League.

Last season, Cristiano Ronaldo was the main source of goals which makes his transfer situation very germain to the Club's hierarchy. Rashford was disappointing last season, Martial had a poor loan spell, Greenwood still out in the cold, Fans are eager to see who steps up for the current season. United? A team to watch.
