Bayern Munich, Sporting Lisbon, Southampton and Everton stars all feature.

David Moyes will be feeling quite happy this morning.

His Manchester United side thumped Aston Villa last weekend and then backed up that solid result with a hard earned draw against Bayern Munich in a Champions League game many expected them to lose heavily.

The current Premier League champions have been linked with several signings this summer as they look to push on and get back to a level next season where they can compete domestically.

Here are five of the best.

Toni Kroos (Bayern Munich)

Kroos looked like a top class player when he faced United in a Bayern shirt earlier this week. He continues to be linked with an Old Trafford switch with the latest reports suggesting that Moyes is happy for the club to overpay with a fee of £40 million to ensure they get their man.

William Carvalho (Sporting Lisbon)

Reports had claimed that United had agreed a deal for Carvalho but the details were sketchy and reports continue to flood in talking only of their apparent interest in him. The 21-year-old has been watched frequently by scouts of the club so a move is very realistic.

Adam Lallana (Southampton)

United have good players in their midfield but they are still lacking a little bit of creative energy and flair. Adam Lallana could be the man to inject that into their side next season and he’s someone the club could realistically tempt in if they don’t have Champions League football to fall back on.

Ross Barkley (Everton)

The Everton midfielder has also been linked with a United move due to Moyes’ association with his former club. However, Chelsea are also believed to be interested in him and United may have to come up with a huge offer if they want to get their man and one of England’s best young prospects.

Luke Shaw (Southampton)

Alexander Buttner has done a great job at left-back for United since he recently came in for Patrice Evra. However, that hasn’t stopped United being linked with a move for Luke Shaw, a highly rated teenager with an astonishing reported market value of around the £30 million mark.
