Manchester United news and transfers RECAP Sancho and Telles to Man Utd plus Upamecano latest


OPINION: United might have found their new defence

With only one new signing in the summer transfer window you can understand why Manchester United might look to push the narrative of current players being like new arrivals.

Dean Henderson’s impressive debut against Luton Town in midweek was a statement of his talents ahead of a pivotal season in his career, with a fine reflex save late on a reminder of the pressure David de Dea is now under.

The 23-year-old’s return from Sheffield United has bolstered the depth at Old Trafford, although not necessarily strengthened the starting line up, while Donny van de Beek might not necessarily be a starter yet.

Van de Beek shone again at Kenilworth Road albeit against Championship opposition but even after two impressive cameos in a week it remains to be seen how he best fits into the starting line up, if at all at the moment.

Even if United were to sign two new players before transfer deadline day, it might be unlikely for them to be of such a quality that they will immediately cement a regular first-team place. Alex Telles is probably just ahead of Luke Shaw in terms of quality at left-back, while any right winger other than Jadon Sancho would find it hard to rob Mason Greenwood of game time.

It means there is argument to suggest that even with three hypothetical new signings and the return of Henderson this summer the United ‘Best XI’ will look no different from the one which masterminded their incredible unbeaten run after lockdown.
