The Athletic's Carl Anka, Andy Mitten & Laurie Whitwell preview United's season ahead and answer the following questions:

- Which players need to step up?
- Does Ole know his best team?
- Which players are likely to leave?
- And of course... where are we up to in the ongoing pursuit of Jadon Sancho?
Don’t forget lots more United writing over on The Athletic - access is  currently just £1 per month  so go to to sign up  lots of great United pieces on there at the moment including a fantastic look at Bruno Fernandes, an interview with United Under 23 manager Neil Wood, and a great explainer on Diogo Dalot’s current situation.
