How Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal could line up next season after top transfers

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are looking to be active in the transfer window this summer in a bid to close the gap to Premier League frontrunners Liverpool and Manchester City, who have dominated domestic football for the past few seasons.

Chelsea have already completed four major deals this summer which takes their spending to more than £130m and their are several more signings they are looking to make.

United have been linked heavily with Jadon Sancho but that deal looks to have hit a roadblock, with the Red Devils turning their attention elsewhere.

Arsenal have also been busy in the transfer market, making four permanent additions of their own so far and more expected to follow.

Here, Daily Star Sport takes a look at how the three clubs could line up next season.

Manchester United

United look set to confirm the capture of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek in a £40m deal and the Dutchman could slot in alongside Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the centre of the park.

It has also emerged that they are looking to sign Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig to partner Harry Maguire, while Dean Henderson is expected to start the season behind David de Gea in the pecking order but he will be ready to take over should the Spaniard's poor form continue

Manchester United possible line-up: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Upamecano, Maguire, Shaw; Van de Beek, Pogba; Fernandes; Greenwood, Martial, Rashford.

  • Chelsea star Mason Mount will excite Liverpool fans with honest Thiago praise


Owner Roman Abramovich has certainly splashed the cash, bringing in Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva already this summer.

Kai Havertz is expected to follow suit in the coming days, while Edouard Mendy has emerged as the most likely replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal and could complete a new-look Chelsea starting XI.

Chelsea possible line-up: Mendy; James, Silva, Zouma, Chilwell; Kante, Kovacic, Havertz; Ziyech, Werner, Pulisic.


Defender Gabriel Magalhaes could complete a new-look centre-back pairing for the Gunners alongside William Saliba after completing a £25m move from Lille on Tuesday.

Dani Ceballos' expected return on loan will likely see him rejoin Granit Xhaka in midfield, with the arrival of Willian giving manager Mikel Arteta an embarrassment of riches in attack as the Brazilian joins Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka, Reiss Nelson, Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah.

Arsenal possible line-up: Leno; Bellerin, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka; Pepe, Willian, Aubameyang; Lacazette
