4-2-3-1: How Lucas Moura will fit into Man United line-up after completing £35m move


Manchester United media wave has been awash with reports that Brazilian and Paris Saint Germain forward Lucas Moura has agreed personal terms to switch Parc de Prince for Old Trafford.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Moura is tired of playing from the fringes of PSG and he wants permanent switch to Old Trafford. While he has agreed terms for the move, the report claims that the French club and Man United are yet to agree  a fee but £35m will be enough to prise him out of France.

Moura 25, has featured for only 72 minutes in Ligue 1 this season and he wants a move before the close of the window. Liverpool are also heavily linked with a move for the winger but it appears that Man United are winning the race to sign him.

But how will Man United line-up with the skillful Brazilian. We take a swipe at United probable line-up with the star.

Jose Mourinho has mostly played a back four and he is certain to stick with Antonio Valencia and the resurgent Luke Shaw on the right and left flank respectively. At the heart of defence, Victor Lindelof/Smailling and Marcos Rojo will pair.

The Place of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic is indisputable in midfield and they will continue to shield the defence, albeit Pogba will be given the freedom to roam the length and breadth of the pitch. Lingard has won the heart of Mourinho as his position has seen him rescued points for United – he should be the man to play behind the striker.

In the attack, Lukaku will continue to lead the attack but Moura, Rashford, Martial and Mkhitaryan will be left to slug it out for a place. Martial may be called up always to play from the left flank while Moura could be the right wing forward for United.
