David De Gea scooped the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year Award for the second consecutive season, as the 24-year-old was voted as the best Manchester United player this season.
The Spaniard was instrumental in ensure United returned to a top-four finish in their first season under Louis Van Gaal, as he produced a number of outstanding saves throughout the season and must now surely be considered among the three best goalkeepers in the world.
Louis Van Gaal stole the show with a rousing speech at United’s Player of The Year Awards on Tuesday night, claiming United were not far from Chelsea before, bizarrely, asking for a round of applause for the lady playing the saxophone. How can you not love this man?
Radamel Falcao might have dropped the biggest hint yet that his future lies away from Old Trafford, after thanking the fans for the “incredible support” this season.
The 29-year-old was substituted on Sunday and trudged off the pitch to a standing ovation, while on Tuesday he took to Twitter to thank the United supporters for what he described as an “unforgettable” season.
Chris Smalling has insisted Manchester United should not celebrate clinching a top four finish, which should simply been seen as a first step after last season’s turmoil.

Manchester United’s already slender hopes of finishing third are all but gone after Arsenal secured a late equaliser at Old Trafford on Sunday, meaning they’ll need one from their next two games to clinch third place.
United looked to have the game under control for an hour before allowing Arsenal back into the contest and will now have to settle for the Champions League playoffs.
Angel Di Maria has revealed he has been frustrated by his own performances this season, adding that he is capable of offering much more to the club than he has so far.
Arrived from Real Madrid for a club-record fee of £59.7m, the Argentine hit the ground running earlier in the season but has since been a shadow of his former self, hampered by a number of injuries while rumours linking him with a move away from United have increased.
