How Man United could line-up with three new signings, including a blockbuster French duo in midfield

Manchester United are making their transfer moves early ahead of next season. Following the recent announcement that the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund to sign winger Jadon Sancho, more news now appears to be coming in regarding two other targets.

It has recently been revealed by leading football journalist Fabrizio Romano that with Sancho more or less a done deal (pending a medical) – the Red Devils have now turned their attention to a centre-back and a midfielder.

Romano has been updating fans with regards to how the club’s pursuit of Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane is coming along – as well as recently providing a hugely exciting update on Rennes’ midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.

It has been noted that although a deal for Varane is very possible, a transfer is not expected to happen too quickly.

However, late on Sunday night, Romano also confirmed that the club’s hierarchy is progressing well in their talks to land Camavinga – a target often linked with a switch to Arsenal too.

In light of what is shaping up to a be blockbuster transfer window for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, we have looked at how the team may look, on paper, next season – should the Norweigan land all three of his main targets, that is.

Where would this side finish in the Premier League? – Let us know in the comments.

    I think you may take Pogba out of that line up. If he hasn’t indicated that he is signing the new deal by the end of July he will have to go otherwise United will lose him for nothing next summer and that may cause friction among the squad when he signs his pre-deal next January.

    I’m loving this.

    Throughout the season I was desperate for a no. 9. Witnessing Greenwood mature under Cavani made me realise that we probably were right to be focussing on Sancho last summer., although maybe a little too much.

    Varane, if we can pull this off would be incredible. I am someone who will always choose youth above experience, I suppose it comes with being a United fan. But Varane is as good as any defender in the world, and has the attributes our defence are lacking. He’s the perfect partner for Maguire and it would create a terrifying back four.

    When Camavinga came about last season I often went out of my way to watch Rennes games. I maybe watched 2/3 games last season and realised that the lad was perfect for our system. He’s played higher up the pitch this season, allowing Nzonzi to do his thing and they’ve been incredible. He’s a signing I’ve been crying out for for over a year and I would love to see him in a United shirt.

    I’m not going overboard. I think if city are going out buying Kane/Grealish they’re just going to be horrendous. With them, they’re one signing away from walking the league again. But this time I suspect it will be considerably closer and I think we’ll end up with some silverware.

    I think United will sign an experienced 9 when Cavani calls it a day but this time as Greenwood’s backup. 2022/23 we’ll be lifting that trophy again.

    Let Pogba go. He doesn’t want to play for Man U for sure. Don’t waste your time & money on him. Replace him with Van De Beek or another CM.
    Get Canavinga.

  4. Christopher Collington says:

    15pts clear for sure

  5. sadek says:

    Pogba has been our most talented footballer in the pitch just behind Bruno. The problem is we need a quality CDM for Pogba to paly better at United. If we play Mc Fred in our midfield we not create many chances for players like Pogba, and Bruno to shine at United.

  6. Lyon says:

    There is no reason to assume Fred ,no reason to bench Fred .

  7. Toto says:

    Bissouma would be a better signing I think

  8. Hasla says:

    Instead camavinga we need to buy Declan rice

  9. Hasla says:

    Good line up

  10. Evod David says:

    Man utd should get players who are going to do the business but not players who are lazy.
    If it was possible they would bring back CR7 to bring back the shape of the mighty Reds.
    I love Utd

  11. Dawit says:

    we need to buy declan rice instead of camavinga then it will be good line up

  12. gift says:

    lets utd sign a player like camavinga

  13. Ian Brown says:

    Camavinga will be one of the best in the world within 3 years and is by far the way we should go for the future.

  14. Eutychus says:

    I prefer Man Utd to go for Declan Rice instead of Camavinga,,,,because Rice has full experience in the EPL midfield but Camavinga is good yes but,,,he will take too long to adapt the nature of EPL midfield in united shirt .I love united

  15. James Scott says:

    Good line up.
    i love it
