Man United are in Pole Position for a EURO 20 Star as Ole's Formation Change is Thwarted and More

Here are the latest updates on key stories coming from Manchester United.

When you see Van De Beek warming the bench for Manchester United, it's difficult to believe he was a Balon D'or nominee at Ajax in 2019. Van De Beek has yet to make an impact at Manchester United, and many believe it is only a matter of time before he departs, similar to Memphis Depay's situation, which necessitated his United exit, leaving like a flop, in order to rediscover his form.

The latest about Van De Beek is that, while other Manchester United coaches believe the Premier League is not for Van De Beek, Ole believes Van De Beek can shine for Manchester United. Ole has predicted that Van De Beek will one day be crucial to his United squad, but he can only help him regain form by giving him ample game time in the Premier league.

If you were to describe Italy's EURO 2020 campaign, you would undoubtedly include Lorenzo Insigne in your lovely account of how he won our hearts with his effortless dribbles, tricky runs, and well-placed shots. Surprisingly, Insigne is currently in the final year of his contract at Napoli, and while the club has attempted to offer him a long-term contract, his demands are too high for them, so no progress has been made. As a result, Insigne has been linked with a move to Manchester United, who are ready to offer him a lucrative contract in order to compete with Inter Milan for a free transfer of Insigne next year in order to bolster United's playmaker department.

With Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire out injured, Manchester United's plan to switch from a 4-2-3-1 to a 4-3-3 formation is unlikely to be implemented, as Ole will need to deploy two defensive midfielders in front of his new makeshift midfield pairing (Bailey and Lindelof) to ensure that the team is not defensively vulnerable. Many United fans were tired of their midfield being two defensive rather than attack-minded heading into the international break, but it now appears that they will have to put up with Ole using his two defensive midfielders as he has in the past until he gets either Maguire or Varane back.
