How Man United could line up after Sheikh Jassim’s dream transfer window

How Man United could line up after Sheikh Jassim’s dream transfer window

Sheikh Jassim is reportedly leading the race to buy Manchester United

Sheikh Jassim could transform Manchester United if he manages to have his 'dream transfer window'.

Over the last few months, Sheikh Jassim and British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe have been leading the race to buy United.

This week, it was reported that Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim is closing in on a £6 billion deal to buy the Old Trafford club and that the takeover could be done by mid-October.

Back in May, Spanish news outlet El Pais reported that Sheikh Jassim was planning one of the biggest transfer markets in the history of the sport.

It was claimed that the Qatari had a list of 10 players he wanted to sign for United when he became the new owner.

However, four of the 10 are now unavailable. Harry Kane and Kim Min Jae both joined Bayern Munich, whilst Alexis Mac Allister moved to Liverpool and French midfielder Adrien Rabiot opted to sign a new deal with Juventus.

Despite that, six targets are still available including Frenkie De Jong, Kvicha Kvaratskhelia, Victor Osimhen, Dusan Vlahovic, Kingsley Coman and Ronald Araujo.


As a result, we have decided to draw up a potential lineup that Erik ten Hag can put out if Sheikh Jassim gets his dream transfer window.

Goalkeeper - Andre Onana

Summer signing Onana is set to be United’s undisputed number-one goalkeeper.

Defence - Ronald Araujo, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw

A very strong back four with Araujo versatile enough to displace Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right back.

Midfield - Frenkie De Jong, Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes

If United finally manage to get De Jong into their team, he can add the perfect balance to accompany Casemiro and Fernandes.

Forwards - Kvicha Kvaratskhelia, Victor Osimhen, Marcus Rashford

This could be one of the best front three in world football. Packed with strength and pace, defenders up and down the land will have a tough time against them that’s for sure.
