A Manchester United XI : With the 2 new signings and ‘The Warrior’


The Next Great XI?

Manchester United may not have been the quickest team off the mark in the transfer market, with Chelsea and Liverpool hitting the ground running this summer.

But it is arguable that they have done the best business so far with the announcements today that Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera have joined the club.

Herrera has been tracked by Manchester United for a couple of years and it seems as if he was desperate to finally put pen to paper on a deal.

He will offer the creativity that has been desperately lacking from Manchester United’s midfield over for the last few years.

But we think that it is the signing of Luke Shaw that really signals Manchester United’s intent to stay at the top of the pile in English football.

Even at 18 this lad is so good that he could play for any team in Europe. He is physically imposing, incredibly athletic, and just loves to get forward much like a famous predecessor at Southampton, Gareth Bale.


Shaw will become one of Manchester United’s best defenders of all time but could also easily do a job further forward and may well fill in on the wing in years to come.

These two signings have given Manchester United fans genuine cause for excitement and optimism.

They will now want to see central defensive reinforcements plus a holding midfielder and possibly one or two wingers coming to the club this summer.

Reports on Friday suggested that Manchester United will pursue Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal – known as The Warrior in Italy for his swashbuckling style – for their next midfield general. With him in the side Manchester United’s eleven starts to look very special indeed.

So let’s have a look at how Manchester United might line up with these additions and a couple more. Manchester United fans, let’s have your thoughts on this team.

Manchester United: 3-5-2 De Gea – Jones, Hummels, Martins Indi – Shaw, Mata, Vidal, Herrera, Rafael – Rooney, RvP

Subs: Amos, Carrick, Januzaj, Smalling, Hernandez, Blind, Welbeck

    British media should stop the “hipe” of Luke Shaw and allow the young man to be focus rather than being noisy about his capability.

      Really? Play Welbeck and keep Mata on the Bench? And Rooney in the Midfield? And you say yourself a number 1 “Man U”(*Man Utd) fan.

        You see what i am seeing, i can not imagine a fan of manu taking us back to flop days of Moyes and his selected players such as Welbeck. Tell me what’s a team that have winning mentality be parading welbeck among first or second eleven? It is quite disheartnen.

      I celebrate the reformation going on in manu by Van gaal, but players like Welbeck, Young,AND FLETCHER, should be sold rather having a game plan that involved them because they are total flop………

    Van gaal should give juventus pressure for fee of £30m for Arturo Vidal and give pressure with a fee of £22m for Blind, lane Matt Hummel with price of £18m and lastly Martins Indi should buy atlist £20m that my advice for head manager of manchester united.

      U could get indi and blind for a lot cheaper than that and u would need a lot more for Vidal and hummils but good signings if possible

    Brilliant selection. But i agree with Chris o, the British Media should leave Shaw alone, let him play to his capabilities n not be pressurised!
