Is this Man United’s XI for next season with Matic and other new signings?

first_img Centre-back: Victor Lindelof – An excellent young defender, Lindelof is capable as both stopper and ball-player and will upgrade the already miserly backline Mourinho has formed. Right-wing: Henrikh Mkhitaryan – After the trials and tribulations of his first campaign in England, the ex-Borussia Dortmund star should be fully up to speed with the rigours of Premier League football. Centre-back Eric Bailly – Ex-Villarreal man Bailly showed plenty of potential in his debut Premier League campaign, which was interrupted by injury. If he can progress, the Red Devils are going to have a formidable defence once more. Right-back: Antonio Valencia – The Ecuadorian’s conversion from winger to full-back has been excellent and is now one of the best in the Premier League at the position. Centre forward: Alvaro Morata (Real Madrid) – Transfer rumours continue surrounding the Spain striker, although his move is still expected to go through. With Cristiano Ronaldo now expected to stay with Real, Morata will exit the Bernabeu, surely. Central midfield: Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) – After a season alongside the force of nature that is N’Golo Kante, Matic will now line up with Herrera, who offers a similar role. If they form the right partnership, Paul Pogba could be allowed a much freer role to create and score. 11 11 11 11 Goalkeeper: David De Gea – Click the right arrow above to see our predicted Manchester United XI including Nemanja Matic and other possible signings… – Spanish shot-stopper De Gea has been superb for the Red Devils since joining in 2011, making 200 Premier League appearances. He’s a wanted man, with Real Madrid interested in his services, but Jose Mourinho should hold on to him for at least one more season. Central midfield: Ander Herrera – Already a fan favourite and now winning over neutrals too, Herrera is becoming indispensible in the Manchester United midfield thanks to his all-action displays. Central midfield: Paul Pogba – Should be released from any remaining shackles once Matic signs for the club, this should see his goal and assist tallies improve – if they bothered you in the first place. 11 11 11 11 Manchester United have made one signing so far this summer, with Swedish star Victor Lindelof brought in from Benfica to add some technical quality to their defence.The ball-playing defender, though, is set to be joined at the club by another former Benfica man – Nemanja Matic.Currently with Premier League champions Chelsea, Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho so adores the Serbian maestro, he’s going to give £40million to the Blues in order to be reunited with him.Matic is, of course, not the only man being linked with a switch to the Theatre of Dreams this summer, and there is plenty more business to be done.So, how could Manchester United line up next season if these rumoured signings are made? talkSPORT have taken a look at the latest transfer rumours, and have built a predicted XI including potential arrivals in the summer transfer window.You can see the entire team, in a 4-3-3 formation, by clicking the right arrow, above… 11 Left-back: Luke Shaw – Reportedly impressing Mourinho as he continues his rehabilitation from injury, Shaw seems set to be handed one last chance to shine at Old Trafford. 11 11 Left-wing: Federico Bernardeschi (Fiorentina) – With a move for Ivan Perisic stalling, there are reports Mourinho is now turning to this Serie A star to boost his attack options. A versatile attacking midfielder, capable of long range goals, he could add another dimension to the Red Devils. last_img read more
