Manchester United look to have finally come through the rocky patch which came after Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

A regime change after more than two decades of sustained success will always herald a period of uncertainty, but with the arrival of Jose Mourinho and a couple of shrewd acquisitions in the transfer market, the Red Devils have appeared to be on steadier ground of late.

The proof of Manchester United’s recovery is in the pudding, and with the EFL Cup already sitting pretty in the trophy cabinet, the dessert in question looks to be a tasty one.

Not only has silverware been won, but the red half of Manchester has started an assault on the Premier League table in the last three months. New signings and new tactics meant Mourinho’s first months in the role were lacking in consistency, but United are now within touching distance of the Top Four.

There is genuine optimism around Old Trafford that the good times may well be returning after a hiatus. Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Anders Herrera and Henrik Mkhitaryan represent a bright future on the playing field, but they are far from a complete team yet.

With rumours of 35-year-old talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic being tempted by a lucrative offer from LA Galaxy, Jose Mourinho may well be in the market for a striker.

There are plenty who could fit the bill out there, here’s twenty of the best.
