How Utd could line up with Casemiro after £70m move following Liverpool match

CASEMIRO is likely to come straight into Manchester United’s line-up for Saturday’s away trip to Southampton.
The Brazilian, 30, has been granted a work permit and is reportedly set to make his debut against the Saints.

Erik Ten Hag will have been delighted by his side’s performance against Liverpool at Old Trafford as they beat their rivals 2-1 on Monday night.

Having lost their opening two Premier League games, the Dutch gaffer made a number of changes and tactical tweaks to face the Reds.

Tyrell Malacia was brought in at left-back ahead of Luke Shaw, while Raphael Varane was recalled to the starting XI at the expense of Harry Maguire.

Anthony Elanga was also given his first start of the new top-flight season, with Marcus Rashford swapped from left-wing to up top.

But midfielder Casemiro is expected to be instantly introduced to the team.

The five-time Champions League winner joined the Red Devils in a £70million transfer worth an eye-watering £350,000-a-week.

He flew into the country over the weekend to complete a medical and was presented to the Old Trafford crowd on Monday night.

He’s now had his work permit approved and is ready to go.

There was no room for Cristiano Ronaldo who had to settle for a place on the bench.

And this may continue on Saturday at St Mary’s Stadium.

The superstar’s agent Jorge Mendes continues to search for a transfer away from Old Trafford.

Here’s how United could look with Casemiro in their starting XI.

David De Gea will be keeping his place between the sticks and will until the rest of the season barring any injuries.

Right-back Diogo Dalot has kept out Aaron Wan-Bissaka so far this term, and is likely to continue doing so.

After an impressive full debut, Malacia could start ahead of Shaw, with a centre-back pairing consisting of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.

Christian Eriksen could keep his spot in a midfield double pivot, where he could partner Casemiro instead of Scott McTominay.

Ajax forward Antony has reportedly told the club he wants to secure a move to Man Utd within the next 48 HOURS.

But with no deal yet agreed yet, Jadon Sancho will almost certainly feature on the right wing, with Elanga deployed on the opposite side.

Bruno Fernandes would then feature in the No10 role, with Rashford tasked with leading the line.
