Manchester United: Four possible starting XI's Louis Van Gaal could use (1)

Published 10 Comments

It may have been struggle but Manchester United got there in the end - kind of. They splashed the cash they promised to spend even if they didn't exactly fill the positions they needed. Instead opted to sign some of the best players in Europe.

Angel di Maria arrived for a British transfer record fee of £59.7 million while Radamel Falcao - one of the most feared forwards in Europe - is on board initially on loan with an option to make it permanent.

When you add in the £39 million they spent on Juan Mata back in January they have one of the most expensive forward lines in Europe - and the Dutchman will not only be have to try and keep his new-boys happy but also ensure that key stars like Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney don't become disillusioned with life at Old Trafford.

So the big question is; how is Van Gaal going to fit them all in? And how does he make the almost-impossible decision of dropping one or even more of his world class stars to ensure a bit of balance? 

Well perhaps he should have thought about that before signing so many attackers. Either way he's stuck with his current squad until January but luckily for him we've come up with four different formations he can play to maximise his team's potential.

Which one should he go for? Click 'begin slideshow' below and have your say on which you think is the best way forward!
