Manchester United: Early Predictions For Next Season’s Lineup


CDM: Morgan Schneiderlin

He is widely regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League and is continuing to become more and more important to Manchester United. He will remain in a starting role next season and hopefully beyond.

CM/CDM: Bastian Schweinsteiger

The Bayern Munich legend has struggled for consistency in his first season at Old Trafford but is still a very good player and will likely be given the chance to shine in a United shirt.

LM/LW: Memphis Depay

Depay started off his United career slowly but has begun to regain form and confidence as the season wears on. Under a manager like Mourinho, Depay could flourish in a role as a winger or striker.

RM/RW: Anthony Martial

It is difficult to predict whether Martial will serve as a winger or striker in the future, but with Wayne Rooney still at Manchester United, he will likely be resigned to a less prolific role. However, he is a very good player on the wing and should continue to grow for both France and United next season with a view to becoming a star.

CM/CAM: Ander Herrera

Herrera is slowly becoming one of United’s most important players and would thrive under a manger like Mourinho. He has all the tools to become a player with consistent numbers in terms of assists; possibly featuring in a role similar to that of Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas.
