Manchester United have made some great additions in this transfer window. With the new additions of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, they look like genuine Premier League title contenders for the next season.
This year, all the enthusiastic fans betting on the chances of United through bettors.ng seem right in their decision to do so.
1 – Formidable defense
Harry Maguire has been performing well for United since he made the move to Old Trafford from Leicester City. Although the club splashed a record £80 million amount, they now know that it was all worth it.
Maguire is a great reader of the game who also has the ability to remain calm under pressure. He is also known for his passing, good technique, and aerial dominance.
So far, the English footballer has clocked up 107 appearances across all competitions for United, scoring five goals and creating five assists in the process (stats from Transfermarkt).
The Red Devils were trying to find a long-term partner for Maguire, and now they seem to have landed Raphael Varane from Real Madrid for that role. Varane boasts plenty of experience playing in the Champions League and La Liga.
With Los Blancos, he has won three La Liga titles as well as four Champions League trophies. He has been praised for his strength, speed, and good technique.
And they didn’t have to spend a prodigious sum to sign him as well, for the experienced defender had entered the last year of his contract at Real and also wanted a move to the Theatre of Dreams.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also have a very good first choice a left-back and right-back in the form of Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan Bissaka. Shaw recently played a key role for England at the European Championship, helping the Three Lions make it to the finals of the tournament.
He also made 32 league appearances for the Red Devils last season, with one goal and five assists to his name. While Wan-Bissaka was also highly impressive last campaign, racking up an incredible 54 appearances across all competitions for United.
2 – Arrival of Jadon Sancho
Manchester United were long pursuing the signature of Jadon Sancho who became an instant success at Borussia Dortmund after he left Manchester City in 2017. The Red Devils finally became successful in landing the 21-year-old this summer after agreeing to fork out a £73 million transfer fee to Dortmund.
Sancho is known for his versatility, pace, and goalscoring ability. The immensely talented winger has proved his abilities in the Bundesliga and Champions League for the Black and Yellows.
He found himself on the scoresheet on 50 occasions in 137 appearances across all competitions. With the England international in the team, United have greatly bolstered their attacking ranks for next season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have suffered a blow regarding Marcus Rashford who is set to remain sidelined until October due to surgery. However, they have enough quality in the squad that they can cope without Rashford for some time.
Some players like Lionel Messi can be irreplaceable as there is no other player like them in the entire world. That’s why; anything and everything about them can become hugely famous, such as even Messi autism, etc.
