Manchester United can no longer win a trophy during the 2021/2022 season.
Having watched their Premier League title dreams descend into tatters by the November break, the Old Trafford giants crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday night. Atletico Madrid beat them 2-1 on aggregate with a winner from Renan Lodi settling the scores.
It means their last standing target this campaign is to cement a top-four finish. Arsenal remain in pole position for that objective, but they were beaten 2-0 by title-chasing Liverpool on Wednesday night.
With an eye on the summer transfer window, meanwhile, United are set to prioritise midfield signings as they get set to lose Paul Pogba on a free for the second time. A decade on from his initial move to Juventus, the World Cup winner is out of contract this summer.
