However, the painting in the Theater of Dreams seems far from ready to rest on their laurels.
As such, it goes without saying that things are improving at Old Trafford before the 2021/22 campaign kicks off.
Hence, the constant speculation about the future of key midfielder Paul Pogba came as a surprise.
Recent weeks have seen media reports pushing the narrative that the World Cup winner is tipped away from putting pen to paper in a new contract with United, although the club is finally beginning to build a squad around it that looks capable of challenging major titles.
Meanwhile, the current favorites to land Pogba come in the form of big spending for PSG.
Although he has already added the likes of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi to the club’s ranks this summer, it has been suggested that the French giants remain keen to lure Pogba back to his homeland.
But on Saturday, a certain section of PSG supporters made clear their feelings regarding the possibility of the United star joining the club.
In a series of banners hung not far from the Parc des Princes, the Parisians pushed the message:
‘Pogba should listen to your mother, she doesn’t want you here. We don’t.’

Despite this, the Red Devils coach remained shy, simply confirming that negotiations on a new contract were still ongoing, as the midfielder “looks forward” to next season:
