How Mourinho’s Man Utd Could Line-Up Next Season With His 3 New Signings

By on July 6, 2016

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was confirmed today as Manchester United’s third major signing of the summer following the arrivals of defender Eric Bailly and super-star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It’s going to be interesting to see how many more signings Jose Mourinho makes over the coming weeks but here is a look at how we think he’ll line-up with the players currently available:

Goalkeeper

There was a point where it seemed inevitable that David De Gea would move back to his homeland to join La Liga giants Real Madrid but Mourinho’s arrival has ended any speculation over his future and it looks almost certain that the Spanish international will continue to be United’s No.1.

It’s a no-brainer for Mourinho, De Gea is one of the worlds best goalkeeper’s so he’ll keep the gloves under the Portuguese coach next season.

Defence

Daley Blind was one of Louis van Gaal’s signings and I think that if the Dutchman ends up staying at Old Trafford, his time as a centre-back will be coming to an end under Mourinho.

Chris Smalling is a cert to start and I think we could see Eric Bailly alongside him. Bailly was a big-money signing from Villarreal last month so it’s going to be interesting to see how the 22-year-old adapts to life in England. The Ivory Coast international is still raw but he has bags of potential so I’m sure Mourinho is confident he can get the best out of him.

Luke Shaw will be desperate to get his United career up-and-running after missing the majority of last season with a broken leg and he’s expected to get the nod over Marcos Rojo at left-back.

Right-back is an area of contention and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mourinho eventually strengthen this area but Timothy Fosu-Mensah will be the favourite to start ahead of Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia if the Portuguese coach sticks with what he’s got.
