Going against virtually every philosophical tradition at Old Trafford, Louis van Gaal has made no secret of his plans to implement a 3-5-2 system at Manchester United next season.

The formation was a major hit at the World Cup – not only did it see LVG’s Netherlands claim third place, but it also helped Chile beat Spain 2-0 and aided Costa Rica’s underdog march to the quarter-finals.

Whether it can be a success in the Premier League remains to be seen. But if van Gaal is to successfully apply it to the Red Devils next season, he needs at least a handful of signings to make it a reality.

Thus, being the kind bunch we are at football fancast, we’ve listed SIX players to help 3-5-2 succeed at Manchester United.
