Man United avoided defeat in their 1-1 draw against West Ham United but more to that is the fact that they failed to seal their Champions League spot.
The Red Devils will now have to win Leicester City to be able to confirm their place in the Champions League after missing out in the last edition.
With the Red Devils chief, Ed Woodward present at to watch the Wednesday night game, it is clearer to him the need to do some transfer deals as the team still have a lot of improvements to make.

This, therefore, means Ed Woodward must quickly sanction a deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish when the summer transfer window opens.
Anthony Martial has proven he cannot be all-consistent in games for Man United and the same goes for Marcus Rashford, making a need for more options like the England international in the team.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already sent the message to the club hierarchy on the need to immediately do deals to help the club challenge, especially if they are able to secure a Champions League spot.
A fee for Jadon Sancho has been the challenge with Borussia Dortmund insisting on £100 million for the 20-year-old while Man United are only ready to improve their offer to £80 million.
EPL: Man United Preparing Final Jadon Sancho Offer
Manchester United are said to be preparing a final offer for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho according to the newest reports in the media in the United Kingdom (UK).
It’s an open secret that Sancho is top transfer target in this year’s summer transfer window and they have spent the most of it pursuing a deal for him.
The Daily Mirror has stated that the Red Devils are preparing a take it or leave it offer for Jadon Sancho.
Manchester United are ready to offer an initial fee of £75m plus £15m in add-ons for the player.

- Manchester United seeking to break bank for £105m target
The total transfer offer of £90m is still a long way from the £108m valuation of the player by his club, Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester United tried to meet up with the August 10 ultimatum set for the club by Borussia Dortmund on the Jadon Sancho transfer but they were unable to meet up mainly due to the lack of agreement with his agent. Personal terms and agent fees have now been sorted out leaving Manchester United to agree a fee with Dortmund for the 20-year-old England international.
Jadon Sancho scored 17 goals and provided 16 assists in 32 league outings for Borussia Dortmund last season but it was not enough as the club missed out on the league title to rivals Bayern Munich.
Report: Greek Super League giants Show Interest In Liverpool Defender
Liverpool defender Yasser Larouci is on the radar of Greek Super League giants Olympiacos according to Inside Futbol.
Olympiacos are in the market for a new left-sided defender after the departure of Kostantinos Tsimikas to Liverpool earlier this summer.
The Reds paid around £11.8m for the signing of Tsimikas and it was the first transfer made by the Premier League champions.
The Merseyside giants have since added the duo of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota to their squad.

Thiago Alcantara has signed for Liverpool in a £27m deal including add-ons, while Diogo Jota left Wolves for Liverpool in a £45m transfer, add-ons inclusive.
Larouci is unlikely to get much action at Liverpool this season as the likes of Andy Robertson, Kostantinos Tsimikas and Neco Williams are all ahead of him for the left-back spot.
The 19-year-old Le Harve Academy graduate has one year left on his Liverpool contract and it’s like the Reds are keen to cash in on him this summer rather than let him leave for free at the end of this season.
Yaser Larouci has a better chance of featuring in the first team at Olympiacos in Greece than at Anfield where competition for places is very stiff.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is the undisputed top transfer target for the Red Devils and the long-running transfer saga has been resurrected in the last few hours after the club made an offer of £75m plus £15m for the winger.

Dayot Upamecano is a centre back target for Manchester United and they may have to pay over €50m for him in this transfer window as per the report from The Peoples Person. He has a €42m release clause in his RB Leipzig contract but it won’t be active until next summer.
For outgoings, Leeds United are interested in signing Daniel James from Manchester United, while Inter Milan want to sign Chris Smalling after the centre back’s successful loan spell at AS Roma last season.
Third choice Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is also a target for Everton with Toffees shot stopper Jordan Pickford under pressure to perform.
EPL: Man United Eyeing £13.7m Bargain Transfer For Barcelona Player
Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo is the latest player to be linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United in this transfer window.

Lindelof partnered club-record signing Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence during the Palace game.
Apart from Todibo, Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano etc. have all been mentioned as a possible centre back signing at Manchester United.
Jean-Clair Todibo has suffered from a lot of injury problems in recent seasons but his quality is not in doubt as he showed during his loan spell at Schalke 04 in the German top flight.
The injury ended his loan spell at Schalke 04 abruptly last season.
EPL: Man United Legend Backs Club Stance Over ‘Crazy’ Jadon Sancho Fee
Manchester United legend Andy Cole has backed his former club over their reluctance to pay the outrageous transfer fee demanded by German Bundesliga team Borussia Dortmund for their top target, Jadon Sancho.
England international Sancho is the priority target for the Red Devils in the present transfer window but they have not been able to make any headway after Borussia Dortmund slammed a €120m (£108m) transfer fee on him.
When asked about Dortmund’s valuation of the player, former Manchester United striker told PA news agency that it is crazy money.
According to him, Manchester United are right not to bow to the outrageous demands of Borussia Dortmund.

Dutch international Donny Van De Beek is the only major arrival.
EPL: Arsenal Manager Approves €40m Bid For Lyon Midfielder
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has given the go ahead for the club to make another bid for highly rated Lyon skipper Houssem Aouar.
Aouar, 22, is the top midfield target for Arteta and Arsenal as they attempt to beef up their squad before the transfer window ends in October.
The latest Arsenal bid was confirmed by French TV show Telefoot Chaine as it was revealed that the Gunners have made an offer of around €40m for the player.

Houssem Aouar has made his decision to sign for Arsenal after the lack of approach from other interested clubs like Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus.
Various media outlets claimed that the player has already agreed his weekly wages with the Gunners and that the Premier League giants are in talks with Lyon over his transfer.
Houssem Aouar came through the ranks at Lyon and he’s one of their best players.
The Frenchman showed his quality in the Champions League last season and he was a big driving force behind the performances recorded by Lyon.
In eight Champions League outings, Aouar scored one goal in addition to four assists.
EPL: Chelsea Agree Personal Terms With Rice
Chelsea have spent the most money amongst European clubs during this year’s summer transfer window and it looks like their transfer splurge has not ended according to the Daily Express.
The Blues have spent almost £250m on transfers this summer and the report via the aforementioned British media outlet stated that the West London giants have agreed on personal terms with Declan Rice paving the way for the club to sign him if they can agree on a transfer fee with the Hammers.
Declan Rice spent the majority of his youth career at Chelsea before he was released at the age of 14.

West Ham United signed him almost immediately and the England international went on to represent the first team and he has not looked back since then.
Declan Rice is an important member of the West Ham United squad and he has a valuation of £80m on his head.
Chelsea will take their transfer splurge over the £300m mark this summer if they are able to re-sign the midfielder with the Hammers reluctant to lower their asking price.
The Hammers hierarchy came in for some rough treatment from the fans earlier this month following the sale of young winger Grady Diangana and the sale of Declan Rice would even cause more problems at the club.
