Midfield – De Jong, Fred, Fernandes
United have struggled in their midfield this season, but the heavily-criticised Fred was apparently recently backed by Rangnick during a meeting with club chiefs.
So the Brazil international could find himself at the heart of the United team – but he might be given a new midfield partner if Ten Hag can prise Frenkie de Jong away from Barcelona.
De Jong is another player who was instrumental during Ajax’s European run three seasons ago and may fancy a shot in the Premier League.
The 24-year-old is a star player for Barca but the Catalan club are in desperate need of cash, so they could let him go for the right price.
Further forward, Bruno Fernandes would likely continue to be the chief creator for the front three.
