Jose Mourinho has already secured the signing of Victor Lindelof from Benfica to improve his defense and now he must focus on other key departments.
As far as the midfield is concerned, we covered a report earlier in the day (via AS) claiming that United are willing to sign Barca star Andre Gomes, who has a release clause of 100 million euros ($112million) in his contract.
The Old Trafford club do have top players like Herrera and record signing Paul Pogba in their midfield. The Spanish international proved to be brilliant in the CM role last season, however, Jose mainly used Pogba in the No.10 role.
The likes of Fellaini and Carrick used to start on and off in the center of the park and in all fairness, the duo are past their best and United must sign a top midfielder this summer.
In the presence of stars like Rakitic, Busquets and captain Iniesta, Andre Gomes could not start regularly for the Catalan giants last season and he must look to leave the Nou Camp.
If the former Valencia star does end up moving to Man United, we expect him to partner Herrera in Jose’s preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. The probable lineup is provided below.
