Manchester United players have reported for pre-season training and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a surprise for his squad: a new style of play. Although most of the first team players are still not available due to either injury or vacation as a result of the summer’s tournaments.
According to ESPN FC, a reliable source, the Norwegian manager is planning on implementing a ‘more attacking’ 4-3-3 formation for the 2021-22 campaign.
Meanwhile, the arrival of Jadon Sancho means that the Red Devils will likely be playing with just one defensive midfielder next season, either Fred or Scott McTominay.
However, bringing in a world-class centre-back is said to be ‘key’ to Solskjaer’s idea as Manchester United look to strike an agreement with Real Madrid for Raphael Varane.
Interestingly, recent reports claim that Manchester United have convinced Real Madrid with their recent offer and a personal agreement will soon be reached between the club and the player.
