Some players need a change…
A new era is beginning at Manchester United under Erik ten Hag, with supporters having good reason to be excited about the future.
Many expect a lot of transfer activity in Manchester this summer, but there are still some very important players currently at the club.
Here are four who we think will play a big role in the upcoming season:
Erik ten Hag at Man United
Donny van de Beek
The most predictable member of this list, but it just makes sense.
Van de Beek was so good under ten Hag that Real Madrid were willing to sign him, until Man United swooped in. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn’t rate him, but that doesn’t mean he has forgotten how to play football.
Expect him to play a big part next season.

Shaw’s fitness is often called into question, as his consistency, but one thing about the Englishman is that he likes to perform when he needs to.
Once he has to impress a new manager, we might see the best of Shaw again.
Sancho is the exact type of player that would have thrived under ten Hag at Ajax. He may not be lightening quick, but he makes the right decision on the ball, and carries it into dangerous areas.
He will be crucial to how ten Hag wants to play, and could be someone you want to get in your Fantasy Football team next season.
Perhaps the most controversial addition to this list, given the 12 months he has had, but if he can regain the level of form from his past then he will be one of the most important players in the squad.
Rashford’s pace was once frightening for the opposition defenders. His finishing was good, and he was a dangerous attacker. United need the old Rashford back, but his chances are running out.
