Manchester United boss David Moyes is going to be under a lot of pressure this summer when the transfer window opens.

United look as though they may fall just short of the top four this season and Moyes is reportedly looking at the idea of completely transforming the look of his squad to close the gap on United’s main rivals for next season.

Here are the five top players who have been tipped to become part of that revolution this week.

1) Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)

Sources suggested earlier this week that United would be making a £60 million offer for the Uruguayan in the summer. However, the player has recently come out stating there is no truth in the stories that he’s unhappy at PSG and the way he’s being used in the first tam by Laurent Blanc.

2) Claudio Marchisio (Juventus)

United are one of the sides widely linked with making a move for the experienced Juventus midfielder. He confirmed earlier this week that he’d heard about interest in him from agents but nothing official has been submitted to the Serie A giants or himself.

3) Nabil Bentaleb (Tottenham Hotspur)

The Metro suggested earlier this week that United were looking at 19-year-old midfielder Nabil Bentaleb. The Spurs star has featured prominently under head coach Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane and the paper suggested that Moyes is keeping a close eye on his progress.

4) Fabio Coentrao (Real Madrid)

Reports from Spain have suggested that Real Madrid are going to move for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno as a replacement for Fabio Coentrao. The initial suggestions doing the rounds are that it’s a move by Los Blancos which will allow the Portuguese defender to join United at the end of the season.

5) Virgil van Dijk (Celtic)

Celtic boss Neil Lennon dropped a huge hint that his club could be willing to listen to offers for the 22-year-old centre back this summer. United will be looking for a Nemanja Vidic replacement and Lennon says he’s expecting van Dijk to ‘earn a top transfer’.
