Manchester United chief executive David Gill has claimed that the club could be set for an "interesting" summer of transfer activity.
The Red Devils are on course for a historic 20th top-flight title but many so-called experts have suggested that the squad is not as strong as it has been in previous years.
However, whether United's current position is down to dropping standards in the Premier League generally or something else, Gill is adamant that the club won't be standing still.
He has revealed that work has already started on trying to secure deals to improve the group and those efforts will be stepped up in the coming weeks as the season draws to a conclusion.
Gill, who's been at Old Trafford since 1997, told the official club website: "We're looking at all that. The work goes on all year round but obviously intensifies as we come to the end of the season in terms of players.
"There's various contracts we've got to do, we'll look at some acquisitions and there will be some players who will leave. It's an interesting time."
He is also delighted to see the team leading the way heading into the business end of the season and with a five point gap on big spending neighbours Manchester City.
When asked whether he would have taken this position at the start of the season, Gill replied: "I think we all would.
"It's been an amazing run and it's going to be a tense end to the season. If we do it, it will be fantastic.
"This time of year's not good [for the nerves]. You do get tense but we've done very well and are in good shape now - five points ahead with four games to go. It's going to be tight but it's been wonderful."
