Man United have just sealed the signing of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid although still awaiting announcement and Medicals
It’s been a busy summer for Manchester United after completing the marking of former Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, former Chelsea set piece coach, Ramsey, former Aston Villa’s Tom Heaton, resigning Juan Mata after an expired contract and then Raphael Varane who is the latest signing.
We look at possible way United could field these players who are to join with the team.
Ole Solskjaer has always known having Maguire at the back at the only trusted defender does him no good as a late season injury did show every flaws in the Red Devils defense line.
More reason he pushed to have Varane signed likewise Jadon Sancho who will help bolster his attacking line.

Ole has mostly mapped his men in a 4-2-3-1 layout and we expect to see him continuing with this same formation although little changes must be made.
A backline of Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka but with Shaw likey to be out on injury, Alex Telles could take the spot for the meantime.
The former Porto man has been impressive, just that Shaw is a better pick but Solskjaer will now get to hand him more playing time while Shaw recovers from broken ribs.
Marcus Rashford is also to decide on if he will go for his shoulder injury that will keep him out for months before making a return.
This may probably be one of the key reasons United pushed hard to have the Sancho deal completed this summer, although Sancho could be taking up Mason Greenwood’s role in the squad while the youngster interchanges with Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial in the front line.
Paul Pogba is linked to a possible departure to Paris Saint German but nothing official yet so it considered he is still a Red Devil and will be in the midfield alongside Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay.
Recently, with Tom Heaton joining, Dean Henderson was made the number 1 keeper in expense of David De Gea who could possibly push for an exit now.
United are also linked to landing Kieran Trippier as backup for Aaron Wan-Bissaka but nothing advanced yet.
Man United will face Brentford tomorrow by 7pm GMT at Old Trafford in a friendly match after losing 4-2 against Queen Park Rangers in their previous friendly match.
