With Manchester United recruiting fellow Scot, David Moyes, will there be an over-haul of players coming into Manchester United this summer?
With high speculation that Wayne Rooney is leaving this summer, could there be room for David Moyes to bring in some new firepower in the ranks at Old Trafford. Potentially, we see no change of the formation remaining as a 4-2-3-1.
Here's a look at a potential XI for the forth-coming season - 2013/14:
Goalkeeper | David De Gea
Struggling to command himself at the backline of defence when first arriving at Manchester United, he has gradually found his way in at the No.1 spot and is doing a mighty fine job. At the age of 22, being name in the team of the season is something every keeper dreams of.
Right-back | Rafael Da Silva
Bought back in 2007, Rafael has excelled as the No.1 right back for Manchester United and has a brilliant season. Being put up for PFA in 2009/10 season, Rafael has a great career ahead of him and can't see him being replaced any time soon.
Centre-back | Rio Ferdinand
A veteran at the club now, soldiering on still being one of the first names on the team sheet. Out of his prime now, but still completely in control of his back line and still has a brilliant defending technique. Rio is definitely one to stay at the club next year.
Centre-back | Jonny Evans
Jonny Evans has played brilliantly this season for when he was needed through the injuries of Phil Jones and Nemanja Vidic.
Partnering Rio Ferdinand he has done a great job. However he will for certain have some competition from the likes of; Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.
Left-back | Leighton Baines
I feel that David Moyes will make Leighton Baines one of his first signings for Manchester United. As Patrice Evra is coming to the end of his career David Moyes might look to exploit this position in buying the attacking Leighton Baines.
Right-midfield | Antonio Valencia
Another player who has had a mediocre season playing for the Red Devils, but when called upon races down the left flank to whip in a cross for Rvp. He does the job effectively yet inconsistent at times, but I can't see any more signings for Manchester United.
Central-midfield | Michael Carrick
A brilliant season from Michael Carrick who has been the key man for Manchester United's success in the terms of midfield. A very consistent player who has the vision to pick out a pass at any time.
Central-midfield | Marouane Fellaini
Another great season for Everton and I am sure that David Moyes will have keen interest in bringing him over to Manchester United. A slightly more appealing treat to him than Carrick has which could make this pair one of the best in the league.
In a previous statement it has said that for both; Fellaini and Baines it will cost Manchester United around £40m to secure the services of the pair.
Left-midfield | Gareth Bale
A bit audacious, I must say. But providing David Moyes gets given the funding to afford Gareth Bale, I couldn't see Daniel Levy rejecting any sort of bid that comes his way. It was either Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo. However - both are incredibly audacious.
It will cost the Mancunian club around £60 million to lure him over.
Attacking-midfield | Wayne Rooney
Even though stating he wants to leave Manchester United, I'm not sure that United will let their prolific goal-scorer leave. A very under-par season for Wayne Rooney playing off Robin van Persie but if he keeps hitting the back of the net, Rooney will have to adjust.
I can't see Rooney leaving this summer and I think it’s vital Manchester United keep hold of him.
Striker | Robin van Persie
The prolific goal scorer for Arsenal, has already adjusted well for the Manchester club and is the leading goal scorer in the premier league. Netting 25 goals, he has been brilliant for 8/10th's of the season. As he had a dry spell for nearly two months.
Nonetheless, I don't think Manchester United need to worry about hitting the back of the net with Robin van Persie in form.
Alexander Buttner | A hot new prospect for Manchester United who is a fine left back, however he leaves gaping holes at the back as he loves to attack. Even more so than Patrice Evra.
Tom Cleverley | A good substitute to replace the likes of Fellaini or Carrick, a solid midfielder who has a great work-ethic.
Danny Welbeck | A bright talent, but in many eyes is over-rated and has only scored one premier league this season. Can be useful as a versatile player who can work on the right or down the centre.
Phil Jones | Depending on whether he gets the first team jersey place, I think that he is one of the brightest young talents of English football and can roam anywhere from defence to midfield.
Javier Hernandez | If not sold in the summer transfer window, a great little magician who can work in and out of tackles. Had a good season and bagged a lot of goals considering the amount he has played.
Chris Smalling | Another great prospect for English football, not as versatile as Phil Jones but a rock in defence. Uses his Arial ability to his advantage
Wilfried Zaha | A new summer signing for the Red Devils, however I do not think he will be put into the first team squad straight away and will have to work his way up. Another exiting prospect.
