Manchester United have confirmed Jose Mourinho as their new manager, with the Portuguese coach already beginning work. With the European Championships looming, that gives the former Chelsea boss some time to work in the transfer market and mould his squad.
Ahead of that, we’ve decided to take a look at a probable starting line-up that we could see next season. First and foremost, he loves to play in a defensive 4-3-3 system with plenty of pace on the counter.
In goal we have David de Gea, and in front of him is the first of his potential signings – John Stones. Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw and Timothy Fosu-Mensah make up the rest of a young back four.
Onto the midfield, and Morgan Schneiderlin will protect the back four. He’ll have Wayne Rooney and Ander Herrera in front of him. This trio will provide the perfect blend of pace, defensive diligence and ability.
The front three is the most exciting. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will provide plenty of speed on the wings, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the figurehead of a youthful side.
