Three ways Man Utd may line up after Jadon Sancho transfer deal including gung-ho set-up with two attacking midfielders

July 1, 2021

MANCHESTER UNITED are on the verge of FINALLY signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The winger, 21, will complete his transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Old Trafford after a third bid of £73million plus add-ons was accepted.

He has already agreed personal terms on a five-year deal and will have his medical once he has finished duty with England at Euro 2020.

Sancho has only made one substitute appearance at the tournament so far this summer.

But he showed his capabilities last term in the Bundesliga as he scored 16 goals and produced 20 assists.

With the protracted deal looking like it's near completion, let's take a look at how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could line up his team with its latest addition.

The Norwegian could go all out attack, in which case the back four and goalkeeper will have to be in top form.

David de Gea is set to continue his battle for the No1 spot with England international Dean Henderson.

While Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw will most likely remain the most-used back four.

In order to accommodate Sancho, Solskjaer will have to balance his midfield carefully.

If going all-out-attack, he could try Scott McTominay alongside Paul Pogba at the base, provided the Frenchman stays – with Fred another option.


Bruno Fernandes and Sancho will then have license to roam further forward, no doubt creating and scoring numerous goals.

Edinson Cavani has committed to another year at Old Trafford, while Marcus Rashford will hope to better his goal tally of 11 from last term.

Sancho, 21, could be utilised on either flank or nominally upfront, particularly if Solskjaer tries to play two up top in a 3-4-1-2.

In such a system, Alex Telles could potentially come into his own – with Shaw in a left centre-back position.

Solskjaer will also have to ponder what to do with Anthony Martial, when the Frenchman returns from injury next term.

The 49-year-old certainly won't lack for options, as the Red Devils aim to go one better than the 2020-21 campaign and win the Premier League.
