The Red Devils couldn't do but watch their eternal rivals, Liverpool march on to break their 30-year wait for the title this season, and all United could do is fight for a top-four finish with Chelsea and Leicester City.
That said, United are now planning ahead of the 2020/2021 season as they look to mount a challenge of their own.
Manchester United have identifed Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho as one who could improve the squad and reports have confirmed that the Red Devils are closed to wrapping up a deal for the winger.
Popular media outlet, The Sun reported that Manchester United are edging closer towards wrapping up a deal for the 20-year-old England player who has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League recently.
The reports also claimed that the Red Devils are close to agreeing a deal for the £100m-rated winger who is also keen to join Manchester United in the summer.
As stated earlier, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be interested in adding some fire power to the squad as he prepares for his second full season in charge of Manchester United, and Jadon Sancho fits the bill for the quality and talent he possesses.
The Dortmund winger had a very impressive season. He scored 17 goals and provided 16 assists in 32 Bundesliga games this season, thereby attracting interests from Europe's top clubs.
Meanwhile, Manchester United will try to bounce back to winning ways when the host West Ham United on Wednesday night before travelling to the King Power Stadium to play Leicester City on Sunday.
