Man United’s possible line-up next season including incredible new-look midfield

Posted by

Manchester United could sign several new players this summer.

Recent reports have confirmed the club has not only made progress in talks to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong, but after hijacking Lyon’s move to sign full-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, the Red Devils are on course to kick their summer transfer window off with a bang.

It isn’t just De Jong and Malacia that Erik ten Hag wants to lure to Old Trafford though. The former Ajax boss is keen to be reunited with two of his old players – defender Lisandro Martinez and winger Antony (The Times).

Although Brazils’ Antony is probably the fans’ pick of the bunch due to his exciting style of attacking play, Martinez, a hugely versatile defender, is another name sparking a lot of excitement.

Rumoured to also be wanted by Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, a potential deal for the Argentina international, which is expected to cost around £45m, looks to be a two-horse race.

Both Antony and Martinez are likely to cost a combined £125m but should the 20-time league winners find a way to bring in the Ajax duo, as well as De Jong and Malacia, here is how ten Hag could line his new team up next season.

How well do you think this team would do in next season’s Premier League? – Let us know in the comments.

More Stories Antony Erik ten Hag Frenkie de Jong Lisandro Martinez Tyrell Malacia


  1. De Gea – Limited GK for the modern game
    Dalot – nowhere near good enough.
    Varane – seems likely he’ll be injured more than he is fit.
    Maguire – Confidence needs rebuilt
    Malacia – Unproven in EPL
    Martines – Unproven in EPL and unlikely to play at CDM – this was De Jong’s position in Ten Hag’s 2019 Ajax
    De Jong – Phenomenal but still has to settle in EPL
    Bruno – Phenomenal
    Sacho – Could be great under ETH
    Antony – Bags of talent but forwards have struggled to move from Eredevise to EPL in the last decade.
    Ronaldo – Is a handicap in the modern game. Phenomenal goalscorer but nothing more than an immobile poacher at 37 years old. He should not be starting matches.

    1. I cannot argue a single point. I think every evaluation is spot on…for a reality type baseline. If some of those players achieve the perceived potential; They could be Top4 contenders. If most/all achieved it(pure fantasy); They could double/treble.
      Unfortunately Man. U won’t sign the lot. I foresee some mediocre adds that won’t find form and De Jong, Bruno, and leave out of frustration. I’ve grown so jaded with the Glazers at the wheel.
