How Man Utd could line up next season with stunning attack including Harry Kane and Tammy Abraham transfers | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED are set to overhaul their attack next summer.

SunSport exclusively revealed the club have made contact with Harry Kane over a transfer.

Meanwhile, a report from The Athletic suggests club scouts have been watching Tammy Abraham.

The two Englishman would represent an interesting new attacking dynamic for Erik ten Hag next season.

This season the club's top goalscorer has been Marcus Rashford with 14 Premier League goals.

However, with the potential arrival of both Kane and Abraham that burden would be eased.

And it creates the prospect of a new-look United attack.

Should Ten Hag stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation, Abraham may be pushed out wide to allow Kane to operate as the main striker.

But Kane's ability to drop deep and spray passes could see Rashford and Abraham performing inside-out runs in a similar fashion to Son Heung-min at his best.

The duo could effectively form a front two while Kane drops deeper alongside Bruno Fernandes to help create chances.

With United also eyeing Frenkie de Jong, Casemiro's midfield partner could also be revamped.

Another look at the team could see Ten Hag move to a classic 4-4-2 formation.

This would likely see Antony come in at right-wing, while under-fire Fernandes is not afforded a spot in the starting XI.

A goalkeeper change could also be in the works, with SunSport revealing the Red Devils are interested in Leeds' Illan Meslier as David De Gea's future remains uncertain.

Alternatively, a more experimental United formation could see them switch to a back three.

Rashford and Abraham could run the channels with Kane free to roam behind them and pick passes and shots from deeper, while Fernandes partners Casemiro in midfield.

Harry Maguire could then slot into the back three on the right side of defence.

This may allow him to replicate his England form with more freedom to play out and more cover when defending thanks to Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.

But before any of this, United will face off against Real Betis in the Europa League looking to bounce from the 7-0 humiliation handed to them by Liverpool.
