Mourinho has made a couple of blockbuster signings as Manchester United manager

A month after being announced as the new Manchester United manager, Portuguese Jose Mourinho started his work at Old Trafford a few days back. The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager has replaced experienced Dutchman Louis Van Gaal after the latter’s dismal two seasons with the English giants. Known as a tactical mastermind and a shrewd spender, Jose Mourinho has bought some stellar players into the clubs he has managed. Mesut Ozil to Real Madrid, Samuel Eto’o to Inter Milan and Didier Drogba to Chelsea are his best examples. However, the 53-year-old has stepped up to the plated at Old-Trafford and has made a couple of key signings. The transfers of PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Borussia Dortmund winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan have boosted the fan’s morale after a disappointing 36 months. With the likes of Blaise Matuidi and Hirving Lozano inching closer towards a move to Old Trafford, The Red Devils will be a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming English Premier League season. 

With a pretty large pool of football talent to choose from, let us take a look at how Manchester United could line-up under Jose Mourinho:

Formation: 4-3-3

Goalkeeper: David De Gea

De Gea
David De Gea is the undisputed first-choice keeper at United.

With the big Spaniard guarding the goal, you don't find it necessary to invest in another keeper. Having kept 15 clean sheets in the Premier League last season, big Dave was Manchester United’s biggest plus point in a dismal campaign. De Gea is armed with spectacular reflexes, positioning, and shot-stopping abilities. He is a definite starter under Jose Mourinho.
