4-2-3-1: Manchester United want these 5 players for an amazing new look team

British media outlet, The Independent, has gone big today by suggesting that Manchester United want to bring five new faces to the club this summer and that the club is in a good position on most of the deals.

It’s a largely feasible article save for the fact that there is no central midfield anchor man mentioned among the shortlist. Are we to assume from this that Paul Pogba, the world’s most expensive player, will be asked to play a deep role again next season?

That aside these additions would be superb and give Jose Mourinho an almost entirely new team of his own.

David de Gea is now expected to stay at Old Trafford and continue between the sticks. Victor Lindelof will reportedly partner the brilliant Eric Bailly in the heart of the defence and the speedy Brazilian Fabinho will join from Monaco to add dynamism down the right.

Winger Ivan Perisic has oft been linked with the club and he could bring some more cutting edge to a completely new front line.

According to the bold report Manchester United will add not one but two top strikers to the ranks and perhaps go with a 4-2-3-1 with Perisic and the sensational Andrea Belotti assisting Morata at number 9. Then perhaps we can expect Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to both continue their development by sharing the wide right role.

So here is how Manchester United could line up next season and it looks like a title winning side to TFF.

Manchester United fans: is this the team to take the club forward at home and in Europe?

Manchester United XI with 5 additions

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea, Shaw, Lindelof, Bailly, Fabinho, Pogba, Herrera, Rashford, Belotti, Perisic, Morata


  1. Belotti is more of an out ‘n out striker than Morata, so swapping those at top would be sensible. Allthou I am sure this would work too. Rashford can’t play every game. I would want Rodriguez as well. Neither Martial or Mata are good enough

    • Good question!

      I don’t see him as a winger. Belotti out right then and Rashford on the bench?
      Valencia will play, so I think Fabinho will be more of a midfielder.

      Not sure why we signed Lindelöf to be honest. Smalling can still play (I hate Jones) and we have Rojo who I like + Tuanzebe and Fosu-Mensah. But, maybe we will have injuries again + Bailly can’t play every game

      I want a left back. Stop using Rojo there just because he has a left foot. He is not a fullback. And get rid of Darmian. He is not good enough. Blind is also in the category of having a left foot. He is neither a left back. Actually not a United player at all as I see it. Good with the ball. Terrible at everything physical in the game. Same with Mata. Get rid of them
