Man Utd’s youthful XI if Eduardo Camavinga follows Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford


    Manchester United are eyeing a move for Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga after securing the signing of Jadon Sancho, according to reports. United are expected to announce the Borussia Dortmund winger’s arrival after he concludes his involvement at Euro 2020.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly wants a right-back, centre-back and central midfielder to go with Sancho this summer.

    According to reputable French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, United will meet with Camavinga’s entourage next week to try and convince him to move to Old Trafford.

    The 19-year-old only has one year left on his Rennes deal and will likely leave the club ahead of the 2021/22 season if a suitable offer is made.

    Express Sport look at the young team United could realistically field – with an average age of 24 – if Camavinga becomes a Red Devil this summer.

    Defence: Wan-Bissaka (23), Lindelof (26), Maguire (28), Shaw (25)

    Despite United’s interest in a right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka should continue to be a mainstay in Solskjaer’s team.

    Captain Harry Maguire will reportedly have a new centre-back partner next season if United get their way in the transfer market this summer.

    However, at the moment, Victor Lindelof will likely be the player alongside one of the older stars in the team.

    Luke Shaw will be looking to continue his scintillating form at left-back and is unbelievably still just 25 years old.

    Midfield: Pogba (28), Camavinga (18), Fernandes (26)

    Paul Pogba, if he stays at Old Trafford beyond the summer, could be the joint-oldest star in Solskjaer’s team.

    He’d likely be paired with Camavinga, just 18, as a midfield pivot, with Scott McTominay and Fred providing options.

    United’s main man, Bruno Fernandes, will continue his role as the focal point in central attacking midfield.

    Attack: Sancho (21), Rashford (23), Greenwood (19)

    Jadon Sancho will provide United with their first natural right-winger in years and should help up an exhilarating attack.

    After completing surgery after Euro 2020, Marcus Rashford will continue to contribute to goals from left-wing and upfront.

    Sancho’s arrival could prompt Mason Greenwood to start playing more games as the sole striker.

    Edinson Cavani is, of course, also present in that position, but Greenwood is widely considered the future upfront.
