Of course, Aaron Wan-bissaka could leave Old Trafford in the summer. Therefore, this defensive setup could be the Dutch gaffer’s starting back-four next season.
Manchester United are still hell-bent on bringing Declan Rice to Old Trafford. So, if they sign him in the summer’s transfer window. He will play as a single defensive midfielder. While, Bruno Fernandes and Donny Van de Beek will play as double box-to-box and deep-lying midfielders.
Cristiano Ronaldo will continue at Manchester United next season. If the club doesn’t sign a new striker, because Edinson Cavani is leaving. So, Jadon Sancho will start from the left-wing and Antony from the right-wing.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo will continue as a striker. Because he can produce effectively from the position. So, the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga will start from the bench.
