How Man United Would Line Up With Pogba’s Replacement Frankie de Jong Has Been Revealed

Manchester United have been strongly linked with Barcelona star Frenkie De Jong. According to Gerard Romero the club may be forced to sell him due to their financial issues and the deal is ‘95%’ done.

So we’re taking a look at how United could lineup should the transfer come to fruition and De Jong unites with his former boss.

It is also looking increasingly likely that Pogba will make his departure from the club, while Van De Beek could make his return from loan as he was one of Ten Hag’s boys as Ajax.

Man United Potential Starting XI 2022-23

Sub: Henderson; Lindelof, Alvaro Fernandez, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Van de Beek, Garner; Garnacho, Rashford.

There are a number of ifs about this team and before the transfer season is over there could possibly a few more arrivals and departures.

Frenkie would almost certainly be a starter, with his level of experience and ability. United are also in the market for a defensive midfielder but for now, we would have to place him next to Fred who hasn’t been half bad this season.

De Jong has functioned as a deep-lying ball progressing midfielder in Ten Hag’s Ajax, sometimes even dropping all the way in between the center-backs to pick up the ball and run with it. He has great balance and vision and makes good decisions on the ball.

We will have to see how Van De Beek and Bruno fit into Ten Hag’s system but Frenkie is surely going to be on the team sheet as he provides something different to those two players and functions in a more deeper role.
