ManUnited wants to play in the concert of the greats again. SPOX and goal show who should help – and who has no future with the Red Devils.
Manchester United is playing a decent season under their coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but their unpopular city rivals ManCity are in completely different spheres.
The record champions have a great desire to minimize the gap to the lost skyblues, especially on the international stage the Red Devils are hungry for competitiveness.
In order to play again in the concert of the greats, personnel changes have to be made, a radical change is imminent.
Who should play a major role in the future and which players could soon leave the traditional club?
These players will also play at ManUnited in 2021/22:
United are looking for a high-class side man for Maguire, but Lindelöf is expected to continue to wear the record champions’ shirt. The Swede does not meet the highest international standards, but is considered a stable central defender. Before United surrender Lindelöf in the summer, other, more injury-prone defenders (e.g. Bailly or Jones) have to give way.
The left-back is currently in the shape of his life and is now one of the most important Solskjaer players. No wonder United continue to plan with Shaw in the future. Again Daily Mirror reported that the club is ready to prematurely extend the national player’s working paper, which is valid until 2023. A clear sign of appreciation that Shaw should move up into the monetary regions of the club’s high earners in the future.
Is the only remaining “real” right-back after Fosu-Mensah’s departure to Bayer Leverkusen, so Wan-Bissaka does not have to fear great competition at the moment. United is looking for a rival for the right-back position, but Wan Bissaka exit is out of the question. The 23-year-old just missed two Premier League games this season, has a long-term contract and is highly regarded at Solskjaer.
Allegedly, Declan Rice will move from West Ham United to Old Trafford in the summer. Even if the case happened, McTominay is not a sales candidate at United. The midfielder is placed under Solskjaer and should continue to direct the fortunes of the center in the future.
The fact that interest in Dortmund star Jadon Sancho should have subsided is closely linked to the outstanding development of Mason Greenwood. About a month ago, the youngster extended his working paper prematurely until 2025. There is no way Greenwood will lace up his shoes for another club in the coming season.
United prevailed against well-known competitors in the race for the Atalanta talent and transferred around 21 million euros to Italy. The transfer fee, including all bonuses, can increase to 41 million euros. Bergamo had approached the Red Devils with a request for a loan until the end of the season, but the English remained tough in the winter. Against Milan, he contributed the important goal to 1-0 in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16, for the second representation United, he snapped three times in two games. It is possible that clubs will apply for a loan deal again in the summer, unlikely that they will be successful.
