Manchester United haven’t been able to ensure consistency so far this season, with a top four spot looking unlikely at this moment in time.
The Red Devils continue to take a step backwards under the guidance of Jose Mourinho, which has caused plenty of concerned faces at Old Trafford. Of course, there’re many things that need to change in order for the Manchester club to really push on to try and challenge the teams above them this season.
Indeed, Manchester United could definitely do with bringing in a number of players to freshen things up and strengthen in what will be a long, tiring Premier League campaign. Mourinho should already have his eyes on potential additions, with the teams above them all expected to strengthen as well.
With that in mind, here’s a look at Manchester United’s potential new line-up after January…
MANCHESTER UNITED’S POTENTIAL POST-JANUARY LINE-UP
David De Gea hasn’t exactly been able to produce many clean sheets this season, but this can be put down to the defence in front of him.
Luke Shaw has been one of the standout performers down the left-hand side of defence for Manchester United this season, with young full-back Diogo Dalot perhaps enjoying a run in the side on the opposite flank. Also, Eric Bailly has struggled to find a central defensive partner this season, which is why Mourinho should look to bring in Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld to sure things up in defence.
Paul Pogba could look to take his footballing career elsewhere in January if Mourinho remains at the club, so Fred and Nemanja Matic will aim to form a formidable partnership in the middle of midfield.
The Red Devils’ attacking three will consist of Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Hirving Lozano. The Mexican was linked with Manchester United during the summer after an inspired World Cup, and they could look to lure him to Old Trafford once again in January due to Alexis Sanchez’s inconsistencies.
Lastly, Romelu Lukaku’s disappointing record in front of goal for so far this season could put his future under threat, with United possibly looking to provide him with competition by bringing in the prolific Mauro Icardi, who has been linked with a move to Manchester over the past couple of months.
