Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern this morning are in good spirits, wetting their whistles with a round of ale whilst considering what the future may bring.
Jose Mourinho seems to have started something good at Old Trafford; the Red Devils have really turned a corner under the Portuguese and are back in the frame for Champions League qualification, amid a run of just one defeat since losing to Fenerbahce at the start of November.
Of course, no one can predict what will happen in five years’ time, especially in the ever-chaotic world of Premier League football. Mourinho’s never actually lasted that long in one job, but it’s clear he’s laid out the framework for long-term success at Old Trafford.
With that in mind, our landlord’s whacked out his crystal ball, encircled by United patrons at the bar, hoping for a glimpse into the future. Combining well-documented transfer targets with prodigious youngsters, this is what United’s starting XI could look like in five years.
