Midfield is the lifeline of any successful football team. The club has a long history of producing legendary midfielders like David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Roy Keane. They were instrumental in guiding Manchester United to multiple league titles. Meanwhile, the current United squad has several quality midfielders who will play significant roles this season if they want to be Premier League champions.

Paul Pogba is undoubtedly the most important player of the Manchester United midfield. As a matter of fact, the French midfielder rejoined Manchester United for a record price of £89.3 millions, which was the highest football transfer price of 2016.

He has been a key player of the United midfield for the last two seasons. Pogba also had an impressive FIFA World Cup where he won the Cup, scoring a stunning goal in the final against Croatia.

Meanwhile, the newly signed Brazilian midfielder Fred is a great inclusion in the midfield and he is expected to form a good link with Pogba. Serbian international Nemanja Matic is definitely another essential player of the United midfield who had a notable last season. The defensive midfielder lifted the Premier League title under Mourinho at Chelsea and he will be hoping to do that again at Manchester United.

Furthermore, Manchester United have other quality midfielders like Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira. Fellaini had a remarkable World Cup with Belgium, where he scored an astonishing header against Japan.
