3-5-2 for Manchester United

Could 3-5-2 work for Manchester? Lukaku with Rashford could cause trouble for the opposite teams.

Oh yeah it could, small problem, who plays that third CB position. Bailly and Lindelof will start i guess.

De Gea
Bailly-Lindelof-Rojo
Valencia-Pogba-Herrera-Perisic
Mhkitariyan
Rashford-Lukaku

I don't think it would be our best formation but it wouldn't be a bad option.

Mourinho alternated between the 4231 and 433 last season. He will probably go more for the former if Perisic deal goes through, and play him behind Lukaku to drive the intensity.

Lukaku
Rasford/Perisic/Mky
Pogba/Herrera
Mensu/Lindelof/Bailly/Valencia
De Gea

would rather not start playing Rashford out of position, especially to accommodate for Perisic of all people.

as a ball boy you ought to follow the rules and customs of the group you are joining. There is a Manchester utd thread for all news Manu, there is a transfers thread for all things on transfers. If people use them they stay on the first page with all relevant information together if everybody starts pointless individual threads the forum becomes messy. Your neymar to PSG thread is a great example of the wrong way to do things.

Why not follow the way everybody else does it at least until you are established here?

That backline does not look good

Also I am not sure why Mourinho still insists on playing Pogba as a deep-lying midfielder.

Paul Pogba's success has been evident when he's in a more advanced attacking position on the field.

This bs went on for the whole season, at least whenever I caught a MU game, can someone explain the logic?

Mourinho doesn't play with only 3 players at back... He usually plays with 4... His prefered tactic is 4-2-3-1...
