PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It is now just over a week until Manchester United begin their pre-season preparations under the guidance of the new manager Erik ten Hag. United were eager to have the Dutchman in place before the end of the last campaign in order to ensure there was a smooth transition between regimes and so that no precious time was lost in a summer which could dictate the success of the next decade at Old Trafford. Ten Hag will oversee training for the first time on June 27 when the first phase of players return to Carrington ready to impress the new man in charge. Amongst them will be those who weren't involved on recent international duty and a cluster of squad players all fighting to get a chance as part of the new-look United side.

Ten Hag will need to utilise his squad to its limits next season if he is to maintain a strong showing in the Premier League while also staying competitive in Europe, something which he could get a taste of this summer. With so many of his senior stars away for the opening weeks of pre-season the new United manager will get a good look at the club's fringe players and be able to gauge which ones should be a part of the Europa League squad next season.

A look at how United could line up in the Europa League next season
Hannibal Mejbri will be eager for more playing time next season as well and could benefit immensely from being given the chance to shine in Europe. Shola Shoretire and Alejandro Garnacho will both be hoping for involvement, though it still might be a bit too soon for either of them to be starting these matches. Up front, Anthony Elanga could continue to play in his favoured left-wing role, and on the right, either Amad or Facundo Pellistri could be given the chance to establish themselves as a genuine option. The central striking role could be occupied by a new attacking signing in the summer window, but if not, Marcus Rashford could play there, something which might allow him to rediscover his confidence and form. Possible United second XI next season: Heaton; Dalot, Lindelof, Mengi, Telles; McTominay, Garner, Hannibal; Amad, Elanga, Rashford.
