How Man Utd could line up at Leicester with Cristiano Ronaldo NOT IN SQUAD as transfer deadline hours away


MANCHESTER UNITED could have a bold new look to their side against Leicester on Thursday.

That’s possibly WITHOUT Cristiano Ronaldo, who is likely to still be searching for an exit on deadline day.

David De Gea will continue in goal for Erik ten Hag’s side after bouncing back from his Brentford nightmare.

The Dutch boss is also unlikely to change a winning formula in defence.

That means Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia are nailed on to retain their places.

But it’s in midfield where things start getting exciting for United.

Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes have proved their worth so far and are likely to play.

But the match could see new £70million anchorman Casemiro make his full debut.

As for the attack, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford are sure to lead the way after impressing at Southampton.

However, there could be a change on the right wing.

That’s because United have confirmed an £85.5m deal to sign Antony from Ajax.

The Brazilian is in the process of finalising his move to Old Trafford.

And he could be thrust straight into the starting XI.

But United have plenty of other options if they want to change things up.

With midweek fixtures coming thick and fast, Ten Hag could decide to shake things up entirely.

Martin Dubravka is on the verge of joining from Newcastle and could be given a debut in goal.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are also desperate for starts.

And a different midfield could see Scott McTominay, Fred and Donny van de Beek get the chance to impress.

Up top, Anthony Martial should be back from injury, with Antony Elanga also available.

And with almost every transfer option already exhausted, Ronaldo could yet end up leading the line.
