Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly planning a tactical change for next season that will excite Manchester United fans.
According to ESPN, Solskjaer intends to change Manchester United’s formation for next season in favour of an ultra-attacking 4-3-3 formation.
The switch to the ultra-attacking 4-3-3 formation will see Solskjaer do away with his trusted midfield partnership of Fred and Scott McTominay.
Solskjaer will instead play just one holding midfielder in order to find a way to play new signing Jadon Sancho and star midfielders Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the same starting 11.
The report adds Manchester United must sign a top, ball-playing centreback to make the plan work, with Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane top of the club’s list.
Several Manchester United fans grew tired of Solskjaer’s 4-2-3-1 formation last season which deployed two holding midfielders and will be delighted with the prospect of a more offensive formation, although the team could lose some of the stability that comes with playing two defensive midfielders.
