Manchester United Reunites With Ronaldo And Now Has The Beefiest Potential XI In EPL
Get the best email in soccer.
Manchester United isn’t playing around this summer and has had arguably the best transfer window out of all Premier League teams. Other than PSG, the potential Manchester United starting XI 2021 looks like the best in Europe.
The last time Manchester United was Premier League champion, 2013, I was finishing up middle school. Could this group of players be the ones to end its league-title drought?
Potential Manchester United Starting XI 2021/22
Manchester United shocked the soccer world when it swooped in to snag Cristiano Ronaldo. That front three is scary good.

The signing of former Real Madrid center back Raphaël Varane has given Manchester United's defense a much-needed boost.
Raphaël Varane to Manchester United, here we go! #MUFCAgreement almost done between Man Utd and Real Madrid, just final details to be completed and then paperworks time. It’s a “matter of hours or days”. Here-we-go.
Varane has a total agreement on personal terms too.

In the 2020-21 season, the Red Devils conceded 44 goals. That’s the second-highest number by the club over the past seven campaigns. A center back partnership of Varane and Harry Maguire should quell more of the opposition’s attacks next season.
On the attack, Manchester United landed one of the biggest transfers of the summer after shelling out $93.5 million for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho.

The Sancho transfer was the fifth-most expensive in Premier League history and the fourth priciest in United’s history. Paul Pogba holds the title for most expensive Premier League transfer of all-time and is one of the big questions marks ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Pogba is finally starting to live up to expectations in the red of United. While his performances with the club in past seasons haven't been great, anyone who watched this summer’s Euros saw how capable Pogba is of providing brilliant passes and his ability to pull off the spectacular. He has been an assist master in United's first couple of games.
¡Goooool golaaaaazo de Francia!Paul Pogba a la escuadra. Nos quedamos sin palabras. Vámonos todos. ¡Qué equipo es Francia! #FRA 3-1 #SUI#EuroTUDN I #VeranoDeCampeones I #EURO2020
