Manchester United ideally need a right back, centre back, anchor man, right winger and a striker this summer. But they may have to prioritise as the sort of players that they are looking for won’t come cheap.
But there are additions which would clearly fit the system and would be available.
De Gea looks likely to leave but Manchester United should sign Begovic either way – top keeper.
He’s similar in style to Antonio Valencia. He’s a true athlete who works hard and never stops moving. But he is an upgrade on the Ecuadorean in several respects. He’s a better defender and, improbably, better in attack too. While Valencia has forgotten how to beat a man over the last few years Clyne cuts teams to ribbons with his attacking thrust. He delivers wicked crosses and has the pace and guile to beat a man. Manchester United simply must sign him.
Box to box magician. May not be the most defensively minded midfielder, but who cares! With him in the side Manchester United would simply outscore most opposition.
The perfect addition. With him on the right and Depay on the left, Manchester United would be superb to watch.
