The dynamic at Manchester United looks set to well and truly change ahead of the 2016/17 campaign. 

Jose Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal at the helm at Old Trafford at the end of last season and there's every chance that the Special One will put together a special team in the immediate future. 

The Portuguese tactician has already secured the signature of Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly and it's highly unlikely that he will stop there.

Indeed, if reports are to be believed, the new United boss is set to bring a number of high-profile names to the club. 

After a disappointing season in front of goal under Van Gaal, United's front six could look extremely different with Mourinho in charge. 

Reports have indicated that the club are set to swoop for the trio of Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but how would they fit into the United team? Well, here's how: 

Potential front six 

                         Paul Pogba, Morgan Schneiderlin 
       Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial 
                                     Zlatan Ibrahimovic 

Tricky test 

It won't be easy to secure the aforementioned three transfers, of course, but this front six would be quite something. 

Pogba is one of the most revered midfielders in world football, while there's every chance that ex-Southampton Morgan Schneiderlin will find his best form under Mourinho's regime. 

The prospect of Mkhitaryan, Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial behind enigmatic striker Ibrahimovic would absolutely give United that attacking edge they have been missing over the past couple of years. 

Manchester United fans: can Mourinho turn this dream into a reality? Have your say below!
