Premier League Contenders? This Manchester United XI For Next Season Will Get Fans Very Excited
08:27, 03 Feb 2019

The feel-good factor is back at Manchester United thanks to their nine-match unbeaten run under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has confined memories of the torturous reign of Jose Mourinho to the past.

Solskjaer's attacking brand of football has got Old Trafford buzzing again but the recent upturn in results cannot hide the fact that new additions will be needed when the summer transfer window opens. We take a look at three signings that could herald a bright future for United and take a look at how they could line-up for the 2019/20 season...

David De Gea
United fans are still waiting on De Gea to sign a new contract but it is difficult to see where else he would go now. The undisputed Number One at the 'Theatre of Dreams'.

Diogo Dalot
The summer signing from Porto has taken his time to settle but then he is only 19 years old. The Portuguese right-back has made four appearances for Solskjaer and will continue to be given every chance to impress.

Victor Lindelof
Arguably the most-improved player since Solskjaer replaced Mourinho. Immense and still only 24 years of age.

Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli)
A new centre back has to be THE priority for United next summer as they bid to find a partner for Lindelof. It is clear that Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Eric Baily aren't the answer. It may take a world-record bid to prize the imposing Kalidou Koulibaly away from Serie A side Napoli.

Luke Shaw
It is possible that United might look to find an upgrade but Luke Shaw has generally done a good job and his efforts to turn his ailing Old Trafford career speak volumes about his character.

Paul Pogba
The World Cup winner has his critics but no United player has been involved in more goals than Paul Pogba this season - 11 goals and eight assists across all competitions.

Ruben Neves (Wolves)
Manchester United fans on Twitter were getting very excited about the performance of Ruben Neves during Wolves' 3-1 win at Everton on Saturday. The Portuguese defensive midfielder would be an ideal replacement for the creaking Nemanja Matic. 

David Brooks (Bournemouth)
United have been heavily linked with the brilliant Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks. The 21-year-old Welshman is confident in possession, tactically astute and has flourished during his debut season in the Premier League, scoring six goals and laying on four assists so far.

Jesse Lingard
Another who has his critics but the 26-year-old continues to impress and has scored important goals.

Marcus Rashford
The English forward has flourished under Solskjaer and will surely go from strength-to-strength after notching five goals in his last seven league appearances.

Anthony Martial
The sight of Anthony Martial signed a new contract with Manchester United will have come as a major boost to the fans of the Red Devils and the 23-year-old is ready to hit his peak.
