Louis van Gaal has made a number of changes to the squad at Old Trafford since he took over as boss, and Falcao could now lead the attack, fitting in alongside fellow new-boys Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera, with two more signings from the Dutchman’s Netherlands World Cup squad also looking likely to go through by the end of transfer deadline day.
Goalkeeper and defence:
In a very different-looking back three, Manchester United look set to welcome the arrival of Daley Blind from Ajax in a deal worth roughly £13m. The versatile Dutch international could also have a role in the side filling in at left wing-back or as a defensive midfielder, but centre-back seems his likeliest position at the moment due to United’s desperate need for new players in that position. In what is likely to be the club’s first choice defensive trio, Blind lines up alongside Phil Jones and fellow new-boy Marcos Rojo.
