Man Utd fans are excited about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, and rightly so. The Portuguese is one of Europe’s best players, and the mere prospect of him returning to Old Trafford has been a dream for many fans.
There’s at least a chance that that could happen this summer, too, with the Sun reporting that the club are trying to get the funds to be able to launch a move for him.
Naturally, a signing like that would change everything at the club, and it’s fair to say that he’d be an undisputed starter at Old Trafford.
However, just how would he fit into the team at the club?
Would he play out wide or through the centre? Would he replace Lukaku? There are certainly some options for Mourinho to consider.
With that said, is this how Man Utd’s attack could look next season including Ronaldo?
LW – Alexis Sanchez
Alexis Sanchez hasn’t had a particularly big impact at Old Trafford yet.
But alongside Ronaldo? That’s a mouthwatering prospect.
The deadly Chilean is one of Europe’s best at driving at defences and terrorising opponents.
He’s at the peak of his game, and having had a few months to settle, next season could see him unleashed.
CAM/Shadow Striker – Cristiano Ronaldo
Rated at £90 million by Transfer Markt, they don’t come much better than Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese has become one of the best players to ever play the game during his time at Real Madrid, and a return to Man Utd would go down in history.
He’s best used through the middle now, but it seems unlikely that he would replace Lukaku.
Instead, he’d likely to play as more of a shadow striker. He’ll be able to run at defences and cause trouble all the same, but he’d also have a deadly forward with him to unleash the same amount of magic.
RW – Jesse Lingard
Regardless of who signs this summer, surely Jesse Lingard needs to keep his place?
The Englishman has had a great summer at the World Cup with his country, and his brilliant energy and enthusiasm will have delighted Jose Mourinho.
Though used to playing more centrally, he could be forced out wide, but if recent form is anything to go by, that won’t be a problem for him at all.
He’s really come of age as of late.
ST – Romelu Lukaku
Romelu Lukaku had a decent first year at Man Utd, and he’s only getting better.
He’s been just as good at this summer’s World Cup, and so Jose Mourinho must continue to utilise him every single week.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival would, surely, not impact upon his importance to this team.
He’s crucial for this squad.
