Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides on Manchester United’s formation for 19/20 season

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a vision of how he wants his Manchester United side to play (Picture: Getty) Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his side to play in a ‘fluid’ 4-2-3-1 system next season. The Norwegian adopted a 4-3-3 formation when he took over last December with Paul Pogba charged with getting forward as the third man in a three-man midfield. United’s play improved under Solskjaer and there was a return to the counter-attacking football of old with back-to-front goals at Arsenal, Tottenham and Fulham. However, the 47-year-old wants to make a slight tweak to his formation next term by having two outright central midfielders behind a more fluid frontline, according to Andy Mitten. Pogba is seen as integral in the new system (Picture: Getty) Pogba has been earmarked to play in an attacking midfield position where he’s given more freedom to get into the box. The move could be dependent on United’s success in signing a central midfielder this summer with Solskjaer keen to move Pogba forward if he can get in a new recruit to play alongside Nemanja Matic.

The acquisition of Daniel James was seen as vital for Solskjaer, who wants his wingers to work hard going back towards their own goal whilst maintaining the ability to race upfield in attack. It’s imperative to Solskjaer that his side has the energy to carry out his wishes in transitions and he’s targeted young, fast players this summer to fit into his model. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and James are both 21, while Sean Longstaff, 21, and Jadon Sancho,19, are also targets. MORE: Arsenal face competition from Everton for Wilfried Zaha transfer  ...
