They've had a season to forget - and it appears that Manchester United manager David Moyes is planning wholesale changes during the next transfer window.

With too many ageing legs and underperforming prima donnas, the Reds have seen themselves lose grip on the Premier League, and slip from the European elite - but things are looking up for the Old Trafford faithful.

Armed with a map, a change of pants, oh, and £200 million, Moyes is putting in the miles all over the continent in search of the key personnel to spearhead his sides' resurgence next year - and this week, he pitched up in Portugal.

The reason? Well, he fancied a spot of tapas, and a taste of finest Cabeca de Toiro Reserva wine. And a better look at Porto hotshot Jackson Martinez, whose sparkling form has been turning heads all over the continent this season.

We say sparkling, but seriously, this guy's goal record - a massive 44 notches in 57 outings - is shinier than a brand new, buffed pound coin. And it will take around 25 million of those pound coins to free him from the clutches of his Primeira League employers.

With pace to burn, and two good feet, the forward would definitely add much needed cutting edge to United's toothless front line, and, would certainly cost a fair bit less than a Cavani or a Hulk, which will mean that United have more dosh left to spend on their other 658 targets this summer.

But if Moyes does want the striker, he should probably move sooner rather than later. With the Colombian set to be handed a starting berth for his country at this summer's World Cup, that price could well multiply should he find himselves knee deep in goals post-tournament.
