Manchester United fans pick dream team to start next season

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United fans have chosen a new-look starting XI based on the players they want the club to sign in the summer.

A survey from the Manchester Evening News asked more than 20,000 Man United fans to vote for the team they want to see start the first game of the 2015/16 campaign.

They chose to include four new faces in the team, with Raphael Varane, Mats Hummels, Gareth Bale and Memphis Depay all included.

This meant there was no room for Angel di Maria, Daley Blind or Marcos Rojo in the line up:


The majority of fans would be delighted to see this XI at the start of next season but it is important to remember that star names do not necessarily mean star performances.

Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria arrived at the club last summer with world-class reputations but neither can really count their time at United so far as a success.

However, while it is true that the club should be cautious about potential flops, the team do need several players in order to fix the balance in the squad.
