DC: Chris Smalling
A key performer for United, Chris Smalling was in fine form towards the end of last season and should remain a regular starter.
DC: Nicolas Otamendi
A £35m target from Valencia, Argentine centre-back Nicolas Otamendi would be an ideal buy in that problem position for the Red Devils.
MC: Lucas Biglia
Another Argentine being lined up for a late move to United this summer, Louis van Gaal wants Lazio’s Lucas Biglia as an option in midfield, perhaps ahead of the supposedly unfit Bastian Schweinsteiger.
MC: Morgan Schneiderlin
Brought in from Southampton, Morgan Schneiderlin is another new addition in the middle of the park and looks a top signing already.
