After careful consideration, we’ve assembled our ideal MUFC starting XI, assuming everyone is fit, following the close of the transfer window.
Manchester United’s performance at the start of the season has been a mixed bag, with Erik ten Hag’s squad appearing far from their best in the first four matches, raising concerns.
Transfer deadline day was unusually hectic for the Red Devils, necessitating four signings due to the injury woes they faced.
Let’s take a moment to imagine a perfect world without injuries. In this scenario, what would our dream XI look like? Here at Old Trafford Faithful, we’ve put together our selection…
While a couple of players in our lineup are currently sidelined due to injuries, the team still looks strong.
In goal, we have Andre Onana, who has been exceptional since his arrival from Inter, displaying sharp skills both with the ball at his feet and in shot-stopping.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s redemption story has been remarkable, earning him a potential new contract with the club. Luke Shaw, when healthy, is among the best left-backs in the business. Lisandro Martinez has been an outstanding signing, as has Raphael Varane. This defensive duo is now a standard choice.
Casemiro has been in need of midfield support, often left isolated, particularly in the latter stages of matches. That’s why Sofyan Amrabat’s arrival is so crucial; the Moroccan midfielder will solidify that position almost single-handedly. Completing the midfield trio is Bruno Fernandes.
Although Rasmus Hojlund has only played for 20 minutes, the signs are promising. He’s already ahead of Anthony Martial in our personal pecking order. Flanking him are Antony and Marcus Rashford, though Antony’s status may be uncertain following off-field allegations.
