The 2020/21 season is over. This was a season that was filled with thrill, entertainment, and tactical masterclasses. However, even though Pep’s Manchester City won the title, the battle for the top four lasted until the last day of the season, every team trying their best to obtain the highly coveted champions league spots. After a long and vicious battle, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea managed to grab these spots.
Now that the transfer window is open, every team is trying their best to reinforce their squads with new talents from all over the world, and Manchester United has not been left behind. The ever-busy period has seen the manager get backing from the board.
Can Manchester United win the Premier League? With bookmaker bet365 odds favoring them, below are some reasons why the famous title might be going back to Old Trafford after a long time.
As we have seen, the Red Devils have been having a couple of busy weeks trying to bring in additions to reinforce their team and add to the squad depth. One of the players that they managed to purchase was Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Jadon Sancho was initially a player for their rivals, Manchester City, before being sold to Borussia Dortmund as a teenager for those who don’t know. However, Sancho has risen among the ranks at Dortmund to cement his place in the first team and getting himself the number 7 jersey.
After long persuasion, United managed to get the sign of one of the most promising young talents in the footballing world. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer couldn’t hide his delight when speaking on their summer signing for the first time. He even discussed his qualities, claiming that his addition to the team will mean that they can now compete at the highest level. He even claimed that they had been pursuing him for quite a long time now.
Sancho has been directly involved in fifty-two goals contributions in the Bundesliga. He recorded twenty-five goals and twenty-seven assists, numbers fit for a player to be regarded as a class player. He can perfectly play on either side of the wing, running at defenses and unlocking the organized ones. He will be such a signing for Man United; all we can do is wait and see whether he will leave up to these expectations.
In addition to Sancho, United has also managed to bring Raphael Varane to Old Trafford from Real Madrid. The twenty-eight-year-old French defender is a world cup winner who has won everything there is to win in club football. In fact, Varane will go down in the books of history as a part of the formidable defensive duo that won three back to back to back Champions League titles with Real Madrid.
One of the things that the French ace brings to United is experience. He is a player who has been involved in highly competitive matches for the better part of his football career. He joined Madrid from Lens and made one of the center-back positions his.
Additionally, he will bring a winning mentality to the dressing room. His numbers stack up, making him one of the most decorated defenders in the league. He has won eighteen major trophies and might be the motivation that United has been waiting to challenge for the title finally. It will be a sight to behold!
Manchester United is endowed with lots 0f footballing talent. Sometimes you take a look at their bench, and you can’t help but marvel. At the moment, United might be one of the teams with a substitute player in almost every position on the field. They can field two different teams at the same time, and both of them will be competitive.
Let’s take, for example, their defense. With the addition of Varane to the squad, the starting center back duo seems to be Varane and Harry Maguire, the club’s captain. However, this will mean that they still have another fit-to-play center-back duo in Lindelof and Bailly. This means that for every position, Ole seems to have a top-quality cover. The only position that is yet to get a substitute is the right-back position, and United is working towards correcting this.
Squad depth allows clubs to compete at the highest levels for a long time without being affected by setbacks such as injuries. Additionally, even if some of the players run out of steam, Solskjaer has the luxury of rotating his squad and still field an eleven that can win titles.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Numerous other reasons make Manchester United the favorites to win the Premier League. With a good manager, squad depth, the hunger to win, and a group of talented players, the sky is just but the limit for this team.
