Manchester United have now gone four years without winning a trophy.
And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is technically making progress in terms of form and consistency, the pressure will ramp up for the 2021/22 season - because Manchester United are a club that expects to win things.
While 2020-21 season saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side make progress, the campaign ultimately ended in disappointment with the Europa League final defeat by Villarreal.
The European Championship this summer means fans itching for action to watch will not be disappointed but it does complicate matters for United in the market.
And as much as we wanted to imagine the best-case scenario where not a single United player left the squad this summer, it's important that we actually paint a realistic picture for next season.
As such, we're waving goodbye to players such as David de Gea, Jesse Lingard and Axel Tuanzebe that we suspect might be departing the 'Theatre of Dreams' either permanently or on loan.
Bringing Scott McTominay or Fred into the side gives the midfield a more solid look. This means moving Pogba out to the left, where he’s excelled a few times, or giving him a break and playing Rashford.
It could also lead to Sancho starting on the left with Mason Greenwood playing from the right and drifting infield.
Possible 20-man Man Utd matchday squad for 2021-22:
Starting XI: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Sancho; Rashford.
Subs: Heaton, Lindelof, Bailly, Trippier, Fred, Mata, Van de Beek, Amad, Cavani.
