Manchester United haven’t quite hit the ground running as many expected following their activity in the transfer window.
We here at the Transfer Tavern feel that maybe with a bit of luck in the Europa League it could help to push on Mourinho’s men.
The Red Devils have a tough task in the form of Turkish side Fenerbahce – of whom have quite a key game in the history of United!
A young Wayne Rooney made his debut for the club in a Champions League game against Fenerbahce in 2003.
That brings us to one of the big talking points at Manchester United at the moment, whether or not captain Rooney should actually have a place in their side.
The 30-year-old was dropped for his country after the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ did so for the Red Devils.
The club who paid a record £89m for Paul Pogba in the summer have been playing the Frenchman deep when many feel he should be further up the field in the spot Rooney is currently occupying.
United have struggled so far in the Europa League, with a defeat in match-day 1 to Feyenoord and a struggle at Old Trafford against Ukranian side Zorya Luhansk and only winning 1-0.
Meanwhile, Turkish titans Fenerbahce have started well with 4 points and find themselves top of Group A.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at a potential team that could have enough about them to beat the inform Istanbul giants.
