Jones out, Maguire in: Man Utd’s potential dream defence for the 18/19 season

Jose Mourinho has attempted to rebuild his team this summer, but thus far, he’s had mixed results. Three players have come in, and each is expected to have varying roles in the squad.

Fred is undoubtedly their statement signing of the summer, and you’d expect him to form a trio with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic through the midfield.

Diogo Dalot, meanwhile, has been brought in to provide some more competition defensively, whilst goalkeeper Lee Grant, in an ideal world, won’t play a single minute throughout the season – as that would mean an injury to either David De Gea or Sergio Romero.

Clearly, then, the major improvement that was needed has yet to arrive, and that is problematic. Fortunately, according to Sky Sports, the Red Devils are now looking at fresh talent, and Leicester City man Harry Maguire is apparently a target.

The Englishman is coming off the back of a very solid World Cup, and it’s fair to say that if he came to the club, he’d be able to force his way into the defence.

But who would partner him at the back? Let’s take a look at Man Utd’s potential dream defence for the 18/19 season…
