Luke Shaw: KEEP (New signing)
Will be the cornerstone of United’s team for years to come, although will want to prove early that he was worth the £30m price tag.
Michael Keane: LOAN
One of a handful of young United defenders who will likely spends the season on loan, at 21 he has bags of potential.
Possible replacements? Thomas Vermaelen, Mats Hummels, Stefan de Vrij, Daley Blind – Two of the first three names will likely join the club as Louis van Gaal looks to replace long-term centre back partners Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic. The latter could provide full-back cover.
