Manchester United’s move for Jose Mourinho looks to be close, with the club clearly trying to start the summer off with a huge statement of intent. The self-proclaimed Special One will have his own ideas and tactics, and for that he’ll be bringing in players who fit his system.
We’ve already been linked with a few names, so we’ve decided to draw up a potential starting line-up for the 2016/17 campaign under the self-proclaimed Special One – and one things for certain, it’ll leave you salivating in excitement.
In goal we have David de Gea, with a fully fit Luke Shaw back in the mix which is exciting in itself. Alongside him we have our first possible new acquisition in the form of John Stones. Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian will make up the back four.
Morgan Schneiderlin will be a revitalised player under Jose Mourinho, as will Ander Herrera. The pair will form a dynamic midfield duo.
The front four is where things get really exciting. Wayne Rooney will be in the team at the #10 slot, with Anthony Martial out on the left. The last two spots in the team will be new signings – Alvaro Morata will use his pace out on that right-hand side, with the main man Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line.
