Shaw, Valencia, Jones and now Rojo unavailable due to injury. Who will play at left back or will we see the return of 3-5-2?

Something like?

De Gea
Darmian Smalling Blind
Lingard----------------Young
Or McNair as the right sided centre back and Darmain as the right wing back?

Most likely we will see paddy McNair in a back three with Young as LWB and Darmian as RWB.

Van Gaal confirms injuries for Rooney and Rojo - Official Manchester United Website

"It was already in the media – Rojo has been injured," the boss told MUTV. "It’s his shoulder, the same as last year, in a training session. It’s very unfortunate, also in the positon of Luke Shaw so I have a great problem.

With Rojo and Shaw both injured, leaving United with a shortage of left-backs, the manager was also asked whether he will field three centre-backs like he did at Leicester last weekend. "No it’s dependable on the opponent," the Dutchman said. "It’s also dependable on the shape of the players, I have to compare."

We surely need another CB in the summer.

We are only luxky that Smalling stayed fit for so long. You can't thust Jones to stay fit. McNair too unexperienced and seeing Blind as CB doesn't look a long-term solution.

Even when fit, there remain doubts about Rojo's abilities. Crucial time for him at 25 but as a back-up he's worth keeping in the squad any day, covering also LB.

I'd wish we have those CB next season: Smalling, Jones, Rojo, McNair + signing either Stones or Laporte

Stones for Jones would be fantastic. Mustafi from Valencia would be another option.

to name a target 11 ( or a possible target for any position):

Lloris
Coleman Stones Laporte Rodriguez
Gündogan Alli
Barkley
Bale Lukaku Griezmann
any of them would make me happy, whereas a LB due to Shaw is the less needed.
