How Man Utd could line up with Anwar El Ghazi as Erik ten Hag linked with shock move for ex-Aston Villa and Everton ace | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly eyeing up a move for free agent Anwar El Ghazi.

The former Aston Villa and Everton man, 28, left PSV by mutual consent last week and is now available outside of the transfer window.

Many Red Devils supporters are furious with the possibility of signing the Dutch attacker.

It comes as Antony has agreed to stay away from Old Trafford amid allegations of domestic abuse – which he denies.

And Jadon Sancho has been outcast after a public spat with Erik ten Hag in which he claimed he has been made a "scapegoat".

El Ghazi, who SunSport understand is highly unlikely to actually complete a move to Man Utd, would be tasked with occupying the right flank.

But how would that see the rest of the team line up?

One possible XI would simply see him as a straight swap for Antony – with the rest of the side staying largely the same.

Andre Onana in goal, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back and Sergio Reguilon replacing the injured Luke Shaw at left-back.

Lisandro Martinez's centre-half partner remains uncertain given Raphael Varane's injury, but Victor Lindelof would be the likely choice ahead of Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans.

Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen appear to offer the best balance in midfield – at the expense of Mason Mount.

And then El Ghazi on the right, with Marcus Rashford on the left and new boy Rasmus Hojlund up front.

Alternatively, Ten Hag could choose to switch to a 4-2-3-1 to provide the midfield with a bit more security.

That would see loanee Sofyan Amrabat come in alongside Casemiro, with Fernandes pushing on as a No10.

There is also a chance Maguire could be selected ahead of Lindelof.

Man Utd's next game comes at home to Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Ten Hag's side then kick off their Champions League campaign away at Bayern Munich on Wednesday, September 20.
