How the Red Devils could look in five years time.
Manchester United are going through a transition phase currently that has seen them hire and fire David Moyes within 11 months and are now struggling to truly find their feet under Louis van Gaal’s guidance.

In five years time van Gaal and a number of their high profile players are unlikely to be there and here is how CaughtOffside thinks the Red Devils may lineup in 2020.
GK – David de Gea
Provided they can ward off the interest of Real Madrid – with on-field success – the goalkeeper will still only be 29-years-old and could be competing with Peter Schmeichel to be considered the club’s greatest between the sticks.
RB – Nathaniel Clyne
With Rafael failing to impress and Antonio Valencia not a natural fit at right-back there is no reason to think United wouldn’t move for this Southampton ace, who is only 23-years-old at the moment.
CB – Phil Jones
If he can start proving his fitness more consistently then Jones could go onto be the world-class centre-back many thought he would be when he was signed from Blackburn Rovers for £17m.
CB – Tyler Blackett
Jonny Evans has never looked quite up to the task and there are doubts over whether Marcos Rojo can cut it as well, but along with Paddy McNair this youth product has been one of the real positives at Old Trafford this season.
LB – Luke Shaw
Completing an all English back line is a left-back who at 19-years-old was signed for a whopping £27m and there is much expectation for the former Saints man to succeed as a result.
