Rooney picks five players Manchester United should build around

Published

on

Wayne Rooney thinks Man United should build their team around Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire next season.

The Red Devils will have a new manager in charge next season with interim boss Ralf Rangnick set to move into a consultancy role at the end of the campaign.

Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are the current favourites to take over and whoever it is will have a big job on their hands.

Manchester United are currently seventh in the Premier League table and in danger of missing out on a place in the Champions League next season, although Crystal Palace did them a favour last night by beating Arsenal 3-0.

And Rooney has selected four players who any new manager can build around next season, he told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football: “I think [Jadon] Sancho will be better next year, Marcus [Rashford] will be better next year.

“They’ve got good young players. I think Jesse Lingard should be playing for them because he brings energy, brings quality. Scott McTominay’s done well,

“So they do have some good young players, you just have to get some confidence and get them believing that they’re good players and perform at the best level.

“And then obviously, whoever the new manager is, I’m sure he’ll bring his own players in and build that through.”

On watching Man United this season, Rooney added: “I have been [to watch Manchester United] a few times and it looks like a team of individuals.

“They would want the season to stop now and forget about qualifying for the Champions league. They are not going to compete next season in the Champions League.

“They have to rebuild and put themselves in a place, in three years time, where they can challenge again for the Premier League.”

Man Utd captain Harry Maguire has come under heavy criticism this season for a number of poor performances but Rooney thinks he could be a vital part of any rebuild.

“I like Harry,” Rooney said. “He hasn’t been on his best form like a lot of players but for England he looks like a world-class centre-back. If he can get his confidence back he can be a big part of [the rebuild].”

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
