How Man Utd could line-up next season with Erling Haaland partnering Cristiano Ronaldo and Declan Rice in midfield

MANCHESTER UNITED could be set to splash the cash again in 2022 as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to continue his rebuild.

The Red Devils brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in the summer, and the club are likely to go big again next year.

Solskjaer is still eyeing up his first piece of silverware since taking charge inDecember 2018, while United haven't won a trophy since the Europa League in 2017.

United failed to bring in a central midfielder in the recent transfer window, and that is believed to be a key priority for next season.

And despite bringing in Ronaldo, Solskjaer is understood to be keen to sign another centre-forward.

Edinson Cavani is in the last year of his contract at Old Trafford and is unlikely to be handed a new one-year deal.

Meanwhile Anthony Martial faces an uncertain future following his poor form this campaign.

And it has been claimed that United are eyeing up a double swoop to bring Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland and West Ham star Declan Rice to the Theatre of Dreams.


Haaland is now available for £64million due to a clause in his contract, while Rice could set United back £100m.

Here SunSport takes a look at how United could line-up should they secure the duo's services in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation.

David De Gea will likely retain his place between the sticks having started all six Premier League games this term.

And Solskjaer could name his preferred back four, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka deployed at right-back and Luke Shaw starting on the opposite side.

French World Cup winner Raphael Varane would then be partnered alongside skipper Harry Maguire in the heart of defence.

Starting in defensive midfield of a narrow diamond could be Scott McTominay who is no stranger to having played there under the Norwegian gaffer.

Rice could then feature with Paul Pogba in the middle of the pitch, with Bruno Fernandes deployed in the No10 role.

And Ronaldo could then lead the line with Haaland in what would be one of the deadliest attacks in the top-flight.
